When I was young, like 6 or 7, I discovered my love of hand sewing. I cut large circles of scrap fabric and sewed and stuffed them. I was a whiz with the hot glue gun, even at a young age, and my mom was super supportive of my craft habit. She set aside a big box of "scrap fabric" that I could use without permission...as well as a big box of Poly-Fil.

I was thrilled when I made this cute little spider. This one is simple with short legs and only one body part...but it's perfect for beginners.
