snake for tanner and kate

I had the Lamms for Christmas this year, and I tried to think of something I could make with something I already had since we're low on the mula. And then I thought of it: I could make them snakes. I already had teh stuffing and this crazy snake fabric I got on clearance a long time ago. When I was little I asked my mom to make me a snake, I just loved the idea of having a huge long snake, so i thought maybe they would too. Unfortunately I forgot to take pictures- so this is all I have from Lizzie's camera. Maybe I should I have her take a picture of the snake for me, it is probably 8 feet long, with eyes and a tongue, and then I made Kate a momma and baby snake- probably 1 foot long, and then half a foot long. They love stuffed animals (especially Kate) - so they loved them!

They are the coolest snakes ever. Totally professional. I was expecting just a tube stuffed with filling. But you did the mouth, the tapered tale, the eyes, the tongue...everything. They look awesome. Shad and I stared at them forever before we wrapped them up for the kids. Thank you Amy. Love you!

Those are tooo cute! I remember seeing that fabric in your stash and giggling until you explained to me that "one day" you would make a cool stuffed animal or a lizard costume or something out of it :) Perfect!
okay, I have a cricut machine too! I LOVE it, I have tried using wonder under to cut fabric but it didn't work for me, what settings did you have your machine on? Also, there's a software called sure cuts a lot, that costs like $70 and you can use ANY image from the computer/internet and ANY font! It's kindof complicated to get started (I haven't had time to actually download it and work with it) bit look it up on youtube to see how it works, if you like it, you'll NEVER have to buy another cartidge! Look into it :) Keep crafting! LOVE YOU!!!
