craft du jour

and you see
that this is one of those crafts
that requires more of my time
than her time,
but nonetheless. . .
it still made her day
to wake up to the finished product
sitting on her nightstand

with the introduction of the "extra help"
for which they can earn a few coins
here and there,
they were in need of a place to store
their little treasure.
the little money purse
turned out stained-glass style--
they cut the felt pieces in whatever shapes they wanted,
then we arranged them to fit the backing,
felt glued them on,
sewed it together,
and attached a little button.
