Halloween Cards!

I made a few of these little cards for Halloween. They were made with stamps and little treat cups from Stampin Up!
Some of the cards never made it out with the cups on them. They were self sticking but when the design underneath was embossed they were not very sticky anymore. I glued some and tossed some. The over all look was fun, but kind of complicated!

Tie Dye!

The kids were both Hippies for Halloween so I made tie dye shirts for them. I had leftovers so I made a fancy girly version for my niece. I was thinking this is a pretty inexpensive gift if you are making a few at a time!

Keely's Crafts!

Ok, I realize it has been way to long. Luckily no one really reads this anyway!
This was a little craft Keely found in American Girl magazine. I had to relinquish all of my colored socks but it was worth it!

Fun Pictures

I thought I would take some pics of the girls in their new dresses. I wanted to play with my new camera too..

These are a batch of cupcake cards I cooked up last night. Just some simple paper piecing using this fabu pattern! I traced the pattern onto card stock to make it easier to work with.

TuTu Cute!

I made this TuTu for my friends baby..she will be one. I hope Miss Sophia likes it!
This has monkey ribbons because her party is monkey themed.
The rhinestones are attached by heat..but probably should not be chewed on.

Wednesday's new do...

I got a new wig for Wednesday. Her bright orange hair was looking a little boring next to her candy colored sisters.
This is Wednesday's goth punk look. This wig shop has amazing stuff and the quality is fantastic!

Meet Aster!

This is Aster named after the beautiful Aster flower that is just the same shade as her hair.
She came with the two outfits pictured and the groovy glasses!
Her eyes close and stay closed, an improvement from the other Pullip doll I have.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Keely's teacher told the kids that if they set a trap for a Leprechaun, he or she would leave their clothes!
The shoes are made of clay. The Leprechauns make their own clothes and tend to use lots of glue. They are not so handy with a needle and thread.

More Spool Friends..

This is my most recent spool girl.
Soon I will try some different types of spools and/or clothespins but I like how this one turned out.
I used the same face as the "Small Object" spool people. I did not want to shell out the money for the kit so I tried my own version. I will probably try clothespins next.

Yummy Do-nuts!!

I made this little felt donut from a kit I bought on Etsy. She does not list this kit anymore..its been awhile since I purchased it.
It was very easy to do and required just a little sewing. I am not very good with a needle and thread so I was glad that I could handle this project! His name is Isaac..kind of reminds me of icing which is the best part of the donut!
The sprinkles are just little stitches, I tried beads but it looked wonky.

A Friendly Monster

This little Monster was originally going to be a bear..but decided that with her perfectly rectangle body, a little round head on top would be weird...soooooo a monster was born!!
She is completely needle felted. Her eye is a bead.
Her arms and legs move and she can sit and stand. She loves art and can often be seen swimming with the crayons. She is also a fan of glue..but glue and felt is a pretty dangerous situation!
I told Keely since this Monster was just practice she could have her. So Keely named her Princess Buttercup. Henry is going to draw me a monster to needle felt so that will be my next project!!

Puffer Fish!!!

I made this puffer fish with a kit I got from here: The Licorice Tree!
It was a gift from my sister. I was surprised at how easy it was to put together. He actually is a pretty awesome pin cushion I must say. I named him Paco.
Needle felting is fun and easy. You may get poked by a needle a few times but the final product is worth it!!
