Cozy Sweaters



For a brief moment, I had hope for spring. That was fleeting with the onset of two snowstorms in one week however. I'm ok with it though. I actually love winter. What's more? I love wearing cozy sweaters. And I love reading good books to my kiddos while wearing a cozy sweater. What's even more? I love making cozy sweaters, while wearing a cozy sweater after reading about cozy sweaters. I'd say that's downright... well ...cozy.

We were inspired to make these sweaters after a friend of the family gave us a new book. The title of the book is, "The Princess and the Pony". Have you read this book? It's quite a charmer! The illustrations are bright and bold and the story line is fun. The little Princess learns that the course of one's life can change at anytime, for genrally unexpected reason! Check out the book for all the details!


Let's get started, getting cozy, shall we?

Gather:

*Cereal box

*Scissors

*Sweater Template

Create:

2. Cut open cereal box on one side and lay it flat.
