Mail Bag Pouch

Mail Bag Pouch

Last Autumn I participated in a mail themed swap. Each person made five of the same thing, all related to the theme of playing postman or mail time. For my contribution, I made a Mail Pouch, the perfect place for the letters and parcels to be delivered to. The pouch is based off of an … Continue reading

Mr. Raccoon Loves the Rain

Mr. Raccoon Loves the Rain

When I saw the pattern to make a little felt raccoon, complete with raincoat and galoshes, in Cynthia Treen Studio’s Etsy shop, I couldn’t resist. I ended up stitching him up for my son’s seventh birthday (how is he already seven?). The pattern was fairly easy to follow, since I have made many three-dimensional felt … Continue reading

I know I do not blog much any more. But, as it is a new year, I am trying to “catch up” and get back at it, because I really do enjoy it. To start catching up, here a couple pictures from this last Autumn that I never shared. The Kiddo wanted to be a … Continue reading

I also did a winged stuffy swap (I made a flying gnome). I received this lovely little owl! Look … Continue reading

We moved back home last night and were greeted … Continue reading

Felt Owl Ornament

Felt Owl Ornament

I recently finished up a felt owl ornament swap. You were supposed to follow the basic pattern from here, then add your own touches. I opted out of using a button and made felt eyes, plus my rick-rack was a little bigger so I did two rows only. My recipient noted she also loved snowmen … Continue reading

The felt ornaments keep on coming!

The felt ornaments keep on coming!

I am stitching up felt ornaments like a mad woman! I have been able to get so many done because my little guy has 4 hours of preschool/speech therapy a week (it is an integrated program for kids with speech issues), and parents have to wait on-site while the kids are in class. I have … Continue reading

F is for Fairy

Full post/tutorial details are here. We made a sweet little acorn tea set (above), felt Fairyland Teacup, and an Autumn Fairy. … Continue reading

I am making good progress on my Christmas ornaments! I want to make a bunch for gifts for Christmas. I made these three recently, plus three other “bauble” shaped ones I still need to photograph. Have you started holiday gift making?
