Cute little hen with 3 chicken. I made a hen shaped book for kids. It is suitable for 3-6 years old kids and you can make a lot of activities.


Activities you can make with this book:

2.      Talk about the farm and the animals from the farm
3.      Talk about the life cycle of the chicken
4.      Teach your kids about “inside” and “outside” and play with the chicken inside and outside the nest
5.      Create a short story or a song
6.      Play “I spy …”

7.      Take the book when you travel by plane or you are in a visit


Cozy in their nest.

Lavender Cross Stitch Chart

I love lavender, its perfume and its color. These days I have tried an old passion: cross stitching. I learn it when I was in 7th Grade. Now I make these simple design for some perfumed items: a card, a sachet and a bookmark. I used my daughter's markers and I made a chart for this pattern. You can download it HERE


The sachet is made from aida and has another sachet inside filled with lavender.


I sew the lavender on aida, then I sew aida on the felt. I put some lavender seed under it. Smells wonderful!



I hope you like my project and my pattern. Leave a comment if you have a feedback. 
Thank you.

Shell Crochet Necklace

Keep your shell treasure in a necklace. Make a holder, a cover for your beautiful shells. It's easy and it takes 30 minutes. I chose some medium shells, almost 5cm / 1.96 inches.


I used a very thin cotton thread and hook no 1.75 mm / no 4 USA / no 2 UK.

r1 - chain 10, sl stitch to make a ring


 r2 - ch 1, 12 sg into the ring, sl st in the first st


 r3 - ch 2, 2db into the next st, ch 1, sl st into the next st (this is the firs petal) - repeat 5 times - you have 6 petals


 r4 - sl st into the first 3 stitches from the first petal and you are in the top of the petal; now make *ch 5, sl st into the top of the next petal*;  repeat between **


r5 -r6 - ch 2, 4 db into the chain space, *ch 3, 5db into the next chain space* - repeat between **, sl st into the first ch




r7 - ch 2, 2db into the chain space, *ch 3, 3db into the next chain space*, repeat between **, sl st in the top of the first chain. Continue to make a long chain, as long as you want to be your necklace.





Happy summer!

Music felt board - PDF pattern

Start teaching your kids music with a little game. It's easier for kids to learn something if they can manipulate and feel some items. For this reason I made a felt board with detachable note, with a treble clef and staff.


Activities to make with kids:
1. Talk about music notions: the staff, the treble clef, the notes.
2. Explain how to put the notes: on the lines or between the lines.
3. Count the notes.
4. Sort them by colors. 
5. Invent a song about a bird.
6. Play with detachable pieces: the bird, the sun, the clouds.

If you want to make your own music board, use my PDF pattern and click Here - PDF pattern for music board

Let's sing.

Frozen pieces

I made these pieces for a banner. For a girl who loves Frozen movie. I used colorful felt in assorted colors: dark and light blue, 2 kinds of purple, magenta, white.


Each piece is almost 5.09 inches (15 cm) in height. Because they are thin, I sew them on another piece of felt - a snowflake.


I used some beads for Elsa's dress. The snowflakes are filled with polyester.
