Make a Mini Flyswatter

posted in: Kid's Crafts | 0

Here is a fun gift to make and give, made from plastic canvas.  It is also a great little craft to do with the kids and grandkids.

This little craft was originally and idea I used when I was a Girl Guide leader.  Here is the original photo that was on the website.

From small pieces of 7 count plastic canvas cut a piece that is 14 holes high, and 6 holes wide at the bottom.  The bottom square of the fly swatter is 6 holes x 6 holes.  To make the handle just cut away the edge pieces so that the handle is 2 holes wide by 8 holes high.  Overcast stitch around the outside or you can stitch the whole thing in with any colour of your choice.  Glue on a plastic fly. My little fly swatter is quite old and the over the years the glue has yellowed.
