Felt Tic Tac Toe Craft & Corgi Creations

This week I wanted wanted to work on a special little project with my youngest son. He is at the age where he still likes to spend time with me. How often does that happen, especially with little boys? Usually he would rather be out running around in the yard and riding his bike.  I wanted to take advantage of the little free time we have and do something fun, just with him. With five kids in and out of the house spare time is limited.

After browsing around Pinterest looking at different crafts, I came across a really cute felt tic tac toe craft for kids. You can find the original link to this craft here: Scholastic Education 
Since my son has been asking to sew something from felt, I thought this would be a great beginners felt project. He loved it and was so proud that he could make it all by himself with little help from me. 

I think he did an excellent job of sewing it up and doing the game board on the front. Who knew little boys like to stitch. 😉 It made a fun summer kids craft and we had fun playing button tic tac toe afterwards. =) 

Happy Friday Everyone & Happy August!  Thank you all so much for your wonderful compliments about my little corgi paintings. I have been painting corgis for many years. You can see galleries of my past work on my Shaggycreations Facebook page by clicking on the linky in my sidebar. I am in the process of getting professional prints made of much of my art, so those will be going into the Etsy shop soon! You can go to this link Adopting Our Corgi Tia ~ Our Rescue Corgi to read the very first post of this blog! Where I talk about adopting our dear little corgi Tia Maria. She is our little clown and the inspiration for all of my art, that and a fondness that I have for Tasha Tudor’s beautiful work. 

I have also started a Facebook page for the blog too! You can visit it here at Silver Linings By Valerie =) 

There is a hint of fall in the air today as I type this. A cool breeze with the promise of things yet to come. I always like to think of August as the “Sunset of Summer.” 

Blessings and Sunshine, Valerie

    Hi Valerie, stopping by via Sylvia's blog. The little game is really cute and how nice that your little one wants to spend time with you. My grandson is only 1 but will keep this project in mind for later.
    Oh, I love Corgis. I am a big Tasha Tudor fan and she loved corgis and put them in her art too. Are you familiar with her work?
    My friend Cat also does corgi art work.
    Your's is adorable.
