Rascally Raccoons

Aren't they adorable?! Allow me to shamelessly admit that I made them myself...from a kit... from an 8 year+ American Girl Craft kit
ok. maybe not 'shamelessly'
BUT! Aren't they adorable?!
I was at JoAnn's the other day picking up some supplies when I came across this cute little 'sew & stuff' kit. As soon as I saw it, I knew that Evelyn and Flora would love these, and that they would look darn cute on their bookshelf. So with a 50% coupon in hand and an "it's for my daughters!" excuse, i ran giggling from the store in excitement to get home and start sewing up my raccoons!

After receiving some chuckles and "You're so cute"s from my hubby, i got to work with little Evelyn at my side oooohhhhing and ahhhhing over the little perforated felt pieces. In no time at all I had these little guys sewn and stuff- and i think it was a fun little project! ...even if it was meant for 8 year olds.

They are kinda on the fragile side, so i'm just keeping them up on the bookshelf as decor...and the occasional love hug.


  1. Oh my! These are so cute! I've never seen anything like these at my JoAnn's - hmmm, I may just have to take a trip for some "supplies" and see what I can find. My girls would go crazy for these.

    Well done, Mama!

  2. how adorable. that pic of evelyn is too cute. good job on the craft project.

  3. those owls are wayyyyy adorable!

  4. Oh yes they are cute!!!
    And, shamelessly or shameful, what does it matter really! We only grow older if we let ourselves, let's just keep on having fun. Soooo cute!

  5. Swoon, they are just to cute for words!
