Sometimes my love of crafts brings high expectations. People from all around the village come to my cottage with ideas and drawings of things they would like me to make. I have yet to turn someone away, though I think that patience is growing thin. 

I do enjoy making things, and I get very excited when someone brings me a challenge. But what do you do when a challenge is too...challenging?

The other day Mikey the gnome sent me a letter.

Dear Crafty, 

As I'm sure you know, my eldest princess has a birthday in about four months. I thought that this would be a sufficient amount of time for you to create her desired gift. Attached is a picture that should serve as an outline for the project. Hope you are well.


 As you can probably imagine I was very confused. What was this strange creature? I decided to contact The Great Wizard Google for more information.

"AH HA!" I cried.

It was called a shark, but what form did the child want it? A blanket? A pillow? A stuffed friend for adventures and such? So I took to my magic mirror and called up Mikey.

"What form would you like for the shark?" I inquired.

"I apologize," Mikey said. "I thought I had written in the letter that it was to be a sleeping pouch."

"Oh a bag for sleeping?!" I exclaimed. "How wonderful! I'll start right away!"

So now I am gathering my supplies for this new project. I just hope I can get it done in time, along with all of the other projects I have going on. Luckily those are mostly hats and small stuffed toys.

Well wish me luck on my journey. I shall keep you all posted on my adventures.
Remember, Never give your word on something that you are not absolutely sure you can achieve.

- Love Crafty
