Today I have found a hodge-podge of ideas. The first is a product that lets you make your own mold, and it is food safe. You can see how it works at Rings & Things.
Fabric Worm has a wonderful tutorial for making a Christmas stocking. You can dress up this basic design in may ways.
These birds made out of almonds would be fun to do with the kids. You can find them at Better Homes and Gardens.
And over at Crafty Sheep she will show you how to make doll hair. Easy to follow instructions.
Well I took you many different directions today, hope you find something useful, and happy crafting.
