Wesley's "spider"

This week Wesley and I sewed a "spider" stuffed animal together.
****I use the word spider loosely. 
You may have to use your imagination to see its spiderness.
Oh and apparently spiders have 8 legs, not 6. ****

The spider was based on Mackenzie's butterfly from her 100 day project. 

Wesley helped me pick out all of the fabric, cut shapes out of certain pieces and sew them to the front of his "spider",  pick out the ribbon legs and stuff the little guy with stuffing.

Honestly it kind of looks like an ugly pillow with ribbons sticking out. 

With a silly face 

a W, a heart and other random shapes on the front. 

But Wesley thinks it is the coolest thing e.v.e.r.
He sleeps with it, swings it around and hits everyone with it (your welcome everyone), plays games with it,

and takes it everywhere we go in the car (and out to dinner when I'm not paying attention). 

And as long as he's happy, I am happy. 
And I'll keep sewing with my kids.
Even if it means making ugly "spiders".
