Birthday Bug Crafting!

I know, I know, you probably shouldn't have a bug birthday party in the middle of winter! I guess snowflakes, sled riding, or my not so favorites to choose from at Walmart (my choices there were so blah- Spiderman, Transformers, and Mickey Mouse). However, my little guy is in love with all creepy/crawly/wiggly things! (and it turns out that a lot of his little friends are too!) I found some awesome fabric with fun looking insects on it and made some "crayon/coloring wallets" as a thank you for all of the kids trudging out in the middle of a freezing rain storm to come to my son's birthday party! My friend Savannah and I made the boxes to look like boxes that would have bugs living in them and filled them with shredded paper. Then, the sewing frenzy began with all of the crayon wallets! I made the little girls out of a cuter butterfly fabric! Well, here they are for the viewing! Let me know what you think!!
