...this is insanely beautiful. Love all the gorgeous beading.  (I know that this took so much work!)

You really put a lot of detail into such a tiny shrine - it's beautiful!

Love how you handmade the candles, too.  Cheesy

This is really neat!  I like the effect of the fabric glue over your stitches.  At first glance, it looked like you beaded the swan.

This is such a beautiful sweater. I am speechless and stunned by your skills.  I adore Fair Isle, and this is just so creative and wow. Thank you so much for sharing!  Grin

7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Mini-Matroyshka Felt Ornaments & Matroyshka-Printed Ditty Bag on: December 21, 2011 09:46:31 PM


It's been awhile since I've shared any projects or followed everything on this board.  I really miss it.  Work has pretty much consumed my life, and I miss all the time I used to have to make things.  I'm hoping that in the new year, I'll be able to put more time into handmade items. Smiley

Anyway...  Here are two projects that I worked on and put together as a Christmas/birthday gift for my sister.  It's a bit embarrassing given the fact that her birthday is in April...



The pattern for the ornaments can be found at Sew to Speak.  When I saw this last year, I thought that this was the CUTEST project idea ever.  My sister and I have a thing for matroyshkas, so this seemed perfect.  (My sister has gifted me with a matroyshka doll, bowls, and plastic bento containers!)  Plus, she's super big on Christmas and trees.

Major props to Sew to Speak for the wonderful project and beautiful, clear directions. Smiley

The ditty bag was made using Keyka Lou's Ditty Bag Pattern.  I love how Michelle advises you to sew the zipper.  It just looks so... clean and professional. Smiley  Believe it or not, this is actually the first zipper I've ever sewn!

I used Japanese fabric for the body and a yellow poly-cotton for the lining.





I packed the ornaments in a slim box and tied it off with a ribbon. Smiley  It's a bit overexposed as it was taken indoors before this was packed off and shipped to my sister.  I also included a little tag inside that said these ornaments were handmade.

Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays!




(Thanks for reading, and thanks to everyone who posts such awesome projects that constantly inspire me and make me want to step away and create again!  Kiss)

Thanks for the sweet comments, everyone! Cheesy  I'd love to see your tasty toasts if you make some!

I had to tell myself so hard to not eat toast after posting this.  I can't believe how a simple food can be so delicious.

I love food with happy faces on them, so you aren't alone!
