Kids Halloween Project - Coin Holder

I decided to make mine a girly one with oversized wonky eyes, big eyelashes and big red lips and dress her up with left over gold ribbon, but you could make it any way you would like.

It took about 10 minutes and cost almost nothing to make and you can get just about everything you need at the Dollar Store:
- 100 googly eyes of different sizes for $1
- Felt pieces 4/$1.00, black and red and any color for the body
- Ribbon $1 or 2 for $1
- Velcro dots or Velcro strips
-  Glue gun
-  Glue Sticks
-  Mini Sewing Kit (optional)

It just takes a wee bit of pink felt for the body and scraps of fabric, ribbon, googly eyes and velcro. 
Her eyelashes are just a piece of fabric that is cut into until about 1/8 inch away from the edge and then fanned out.

On this project, the sides, the spine on the back and the googly eyes were hand stitched but the rest is done with a hot glue gun - you could just use a hot glue gun on the entire project.
