    I LOVE this project!!! Im an activity director at an assisted living home, i'm always looking for fresh ideas that are easy enough for the residents with limited hand mobility to enjoy as well. This is perfect!

    That's what my mother used to do for a living. I think it's a terrific idea.

    This is really nice! I see a lot of opportunities for customization for a table ensemble, with matching cloths. Thanks so much for the cool idea!

    Look like a lot of fun while making these :)

    Very relaxing! Nice job on the strawberry Santa Clause project, BTW!

    Nice, I love the bright colours!
