My Makia Creation

***Don’t forget to enter the Makia Creations giveaway here***

The girls over at Makia Creations sent me one of their kits to try and review.

I am NOT a wood crafter. I like fabric. I’m a sewist (sounds better than calling yourself a sewer…just go with it). So, I thought if *I* could do this, ANYONE could.

They sent me the turkey kit with the snowman upgrade.

It’s supposed to look like this:


and this:


Could I do it?

I watched the instructional videos. (Seriously…all of them. They’re short, which is good if you want to watch them repeatedly to make sure you don’t screw up. And by “you” I mean “me”.)

It was then that I realized that I’d need some supplies on account of not being a wood crafter. That would probably be the only little snag in putting together my Makia Creation: I didn’t know what else I’d need. Maybe you seasoned wood crafters have all that stuff on hand? A list of additional supplies needed would easily solve that, though. Or (and this would be the smart thing to do), you could also add a supply kit to your order.

    Those look great! Fab job! I keep looking at them though, and I am perplexed as to how the turkey turns into the snowman. I get that the turkey head becomes the snowman head, but how does it stay on there without falling off?
