12262012 038For Christmas Ella wanted to make a Monster doll for her cousin, so she took the initiative to figure out to make the doll herself and with very little help from Mama she created an awesome felt doll!  While working on the doll she decided that she wanted to blog about the process, so I snapped pictures as she worked, and today she sat down and wrote about the experience.  I have to say, I was quite proud of my girl when she did this.  She’s so creative, and so independent.  I’ve always let crafting supplies be available for my children from an early age, to encourage their imagination and cultivate their creativity.  I love watching them take an idea and make it happen.  If you have a young one who is into crafts (or monsters) then check out Ella’s Monster Doll Tutorial on her blog.
