Oh, I knew there was a reason I've been saving all that monster fur after making the Halloween monster wreath from Craftster a couple of years ago... he's SO cute!  Thanks for the tutorial!!
2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Felt Mailboxes on: March 26, 2009 02:23:38 PM
I've been working on these mailboxes forever, thanks to the very poor decision to blanket-stitch all the teeny tiny windows rather than just friggin' gluing them.  I think they may have turned out a bit long, but I still am pleased with them.  The felt inside is a little loose because I didn't account for how much shorter that piece should be compared to the outer piece.  I haven't given them to the littles yet, but am envisioning leaving little love notes for them to find...

4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Little woodland fairies and their homes on: March 11, 2009 06:44:33 PM
For Valentine's Day, I made my daughter a little gourd house, roughly following the instructions from a tutorial on Bitter Betty's Blog, adding a wooden base and a set of little fairies of my own design:





The gourd wasn't flat enough on the bottom for the hot glue to hold it onto the base for long, so I'm reworking that now.  When a little friend's third birthday came up, I decided she needed some fairies, too:



But I needed an alternative to the gourd house for their home, since I haven't fixed my daughter's yet, and I came up with this super easy little idea:



The little fairies can sit at the table when it's time to play:



Or they can retreat into the little box when it's time to sleep:



There are tutorials for the fairies and the little woodland box (not that you really need a tutorial for that one) on my blog. 

Thanks for looking!

So beautiful!  I love the fabrics, the butterflies, the frills, everything.  What a lucky little girl!

Wow, thank you all so much for the comments!  I'm really, really flattered and excited it was so well-received in a place so filled with brilliant ideas, beautiful projects and inspiring crafters!  Totally made my month!

My little man (almost 19 months) has never been the book fan his sister has been since she was two months old (seriously, could stop a complete screaming fit by opening a book).  Until now. He's fallen in love with Jan Brett's The Mitten, and so I made him a little Valentine's Day present to celebrate his new-found book love!

Here are all the animals:


Here they are eyeing the mitten:


And here they are, stuffed into the mitten:


I'm pretty happy with it, especially since it was my first real 3-dimensional needle-felting project (I attempted and failed to make a pumpkin a few months ago).  I got the pattern for the mitten itself at a cool craft supply swap fundraiser for a local art group, and the wool for the mitten is from sheep at the working farm our county has close to our house.  My kids know the sheep, and I know they don't get eaten, so we're all happy!

I had a little contest on my blog, posting an animal a day until someone guessed what I was doing -- my friend Ellen got it on the fourth animal.  Impressive, since she doesn't have kids yet, though her mother is a librarian, so I'm sure that helps!

There are pictures of the individual animals on my blog, in case you haven't seen enough Smiley  http://www.littlesisterhandmade.com/2009/01/the-mitten/ 

Thanks for looking!

10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Re: Valentine's Day Countdown Calendar (with link to tutorial) on: January 17, 2009 11:25:22 AM
Thank you!  I spent a couple of weeks crafting every night after the little ones went to bed.  And then the last couple of days, I tried to get some done during the day, too.  I gave the kids a watered down glue/glitter mixture with paintbrushes and paper.  I must have gotten, oh, a good 20 minutes out of that one  Cheesy
