embroidered felt headbands

A has wanting to do her own hair lately, which means barrettes, pig tails and pony tails are out, because she can’t do them by herself.  She’s been wearing a lot of cotton kerchiefs (which our neighbor sews and are very cute), and the crochet kerchief and headband I made for her, but I decided […]

needle books

I am CONSTANTLY losing my needles (maybe my marbles, too), so I decided to make a needle book to go along with my new notebook cover.  I did a search for needle books on pinterest and found these gorgeous books.  Aren’t they beautiful?  Mine is inspired by those ones, but obviously  not nearly as fancy.   […]

maggie bunny’s brother max

wee mousie

J’s mouse-loving friend is turning 6 today and I made him this little Wee Mousie in an Altoids tin, using this pattern.  I followed all the instructions, with the exception that I hand sewed everything and I crocheted a little alpaca blanket instead of making the blanket out of felt.  I hope Mousie is a […]

a bed for mousie

J and A love to paint unfinished wood things.  Awhile ago, I found some little inexpensive wood trays for them to paint, not really knowing what we would do with the finished product, but as soon as they saw the trays, they both said “beds!”  So, they painted away and I whipped up some quick […]
