the tale of the beastie boys

Beastie boys pencil toppers
Once upon a time, last Friday, Mrs P-L decided to do a post about ants, what a strange lady!As she did the school run she began to think. Now everyone knows that when Mrs P-L decides to think, she'll have an IDEA!
"Run, run," Mr P-L shouted "This is a dangerous thing!"
It usually means that Mr P-L will have to help. Luckily for Mr P-L all he had to do was agree with the strange lady and go to John Lewis on his way home from work.
Mrs P-L thought about all the little boys who have to go to craft fairs with their mums, and might like a little something for themselves.
 "How about an ant pencil topper?" said Mrs P-L.
First she got some felt and cut out circles, big ones and small and arranged them several times. When she was happy she sewed them in place, and it made her smile.
The ant then met some friends - spider and caterpillar and they decided they wanted to join the story as well. So they decided to go on a blog hop and say hello to all the new friends and old at Handmade Monday.
What happens next?
It's up to you!

I think your pencil toppers are great. And the boys will enjoy scaring the girls with them. Have a crafty week.

Well they all look really happy so the end of their story cannot be a bad one! What did you use for their eyes? They work really well. Brilliant idea. Well done :)

What a brilliant idea. Craft fairs often cater for little girls and the boys are left out.

You could branch out and start making collections of different insects, animals, birds, butterflies! I think they look great!

I have a bit of a thing about bugs anyway, so I think your insect pencil toppers are great, and will be really popular.

I would love to have these as a kid at school - pretty realistic.

They really are wonderful - I had a little girl who would have just loved those (she liked to scare her big sister!)

What a great idea! Even with three little boys in the house, it does sometimes feel that crafts are a bit girly - although I'm cross stitching a severed finger at the moment (don't ask...) and that is right up my boys street!
