Easy way to turn out Sock Monkey tail and arms

I am addicted to making the sock monkeys but  I didnt enjoy turning out tails and arms and stuffing them as it is fidgetty, then I remembered years ago when I made a raggedy doll I was shown how to turn out the skinny legs and tried it with the sock monkey and it worked!! I tried it to stuff it using the hollow tube and found it so much easier and quicker!  I thought I would share it with you. I hope the pictures and my instructions is be easy to follow.

supplies needed one hollow tube,mine is about 19mm and a stick

step one                                                                      
hollow tube and stick


Step two
cover the hollow tube with the inside out arms or tail

step three                                                                 
push the wooden stick into the hollow tube                    

Step four
The stick turns the arm inside out as it comes out the other end of the tube.

step five
the arm coming out of the tube

step 6
the arm now out of the tube

step seven
push the hollow tube back into the turned out arm

step eight
Push the stuffing through the tube into the arm bit by bit (dont fill the whole tube) until you feel the arm is stuffed  move the tube and stuff another wee bit and keep going till the whole arm is filled.

Finished arm!

Cowgirl Cookies in a Jar

I went to ASDA last night for kiln jars for another project but they had none left, whilst browing the store I seen these pink smarties and remembered about the Cowgirl Cookies which you can see here
 Cowgirl Cookies
 I made it this morning will bake it tomorrow with my son see if it works before making more! Do check out her website as she has lovely things on her site as well as downloadable PDF for the labels!
I used a coffee jar to make this and it was a bit of trial and error as Bakerella says sugar on top but when i tried that the sugar ran down over the chocolate chips and smarties! so I did it again and put sugar on top of the flour.

Snowman Poop

Snowman Poop
This is my take on snowman poop, I used a test tube and filled it with tic tacs.
the poem is...
Snowman Poop
I hear you've been naughty,
So listen, here's the scoop...
I'm running short of coal this year,
so you get "Snowman Poop"
Love Santa
