pinch me

I made two of these frog-like coin/candy holders.
My boys thought they were fantastic and had fun putting a few quarters inside.
Here's where I got the idea
Cut 3- 10holes X 10holes
Hold the tail along the backside as you stitch diagonally.

Run 3 whip stitches through each corner square
You need 2 squares that have 2 edges finished and
one square with all 4 edges unfinished.

Line up and whip stitch two unfinished edges together.
Look at photo above to figure out which squares to use.
These two unfinished edges just need to get stitched together
and you're done.
Hot glue google eyes and pinch cheeks to reveal a hidden treasure inside!


  1. hi, I have a pre-k blog too, but I just did a unit on money and those pinch creatures would have been terrific to hold their coins, I must do it next year, I hope I remember how to do it and such, I gotta come back here tomorrow and jot down ideas, thanks
