Some recently made things around here: old-fashioned oatmeal cookies, a clock that will always tell the guy that its time to come home, m&m bars ready to be eaten, and a funny new animal.
These cards blend my love of drawing with my inner hair stylist. I really enjoyed using the different stitches to make the hair textures. Find them now in the shop!
Now I just need to find a flower crown that I can wear around all day.
I whipped up this trio of clutches right before Christmas, and they made perfect little gifts. Especially if you put a couple extra fun things inside each one. The fruit one went to my sister, along with an apple pie plate. Because I am clever like that.
I used this pattern here (for free!), and they came together really fast. I might make up a couple more with some extra fabric, to have on hand in case I am in a giving mood!
Erybody in the house gettin cozy.
We decided on (impulse bought) a tiny real tree this year. You can’t beat that Christmas tree smell. We used our plaid fabric ornaments and some gingerbread men to decorate it.
Since the tree was just a little guy, we had some extra lights left over, so we put them around the house. The lighting makes the house look so cozy.
Finished up this rowdy crew yesterday. You can find them in the shop now!
I am not, by any definition of the word expert, an expert crocheter. But my ma helped me out semi-following these directions, and I got some help from this youtube lady here. After just a couple minutes of watching, I was crocheting so much faster than her (if you watch the video, this would be a joke).
I thought it might be fun to commemorate our first home in tiny replica form. It is the house we bought together, and our first home where we share the same last name, so I imagine it will always have a very special place in our hearts.
The cat bat pattern is my favorite in the pumpkin carving book. I carved it last year, and the year before, and I’ll probably use it again this year. Because I like it, and its fun to say cat bat.
Cat bat is a very simple little creation, so I made up a (very basic) pattern you can find here. Make your own!!! You can add a little face, or fangs, or fancy wing designs. I added a tail to mine. Because he is a cat, who is also a bat. Not the other way around. Possible cat bat configurations are endless.
