The other night I had to tell my six year old to stop reading his book and go to bed. Is a great feeling really. Then when he finished the book he cried because he wasn't ready to say goodbye to the characters. This is probably one of the most exhorting things ever to me. So I made him this because it seems to fit. Also any excuse to craft.
My second attempt at a pony. I've learned that I like felt much more than fabric. I embroidered the lilies and painted the eyes. I tried to make it look as much like the little figure as I could. However I'm still having issues trying to make decent hair.
I was going through my many many boxes of unfinished projects (I'm really bad at moving on to a new one before I'm finished) So I found a bunch of little cross stitch fun that I was supposed to give away and whatnot (but I am a scatterbrain)

With all the encouragement (and the fact that I decided to hurt my ankle last week and now have plenty of extra time on my hands) I worked on a few more fun items and figured I'd just add them here instead of making a new thread.
I'm really enjoying a lot of pattern books my sons' grandmother left us when she passed.
I really wish I had found this one sooner. I meant to give it to my sons' grandmother when she retired and aparently lost all track of it
Oh how I wish I had a better camera than my cell phone. LOL. My DH loves steam punk and all clothing items that are retro. 50's and earlier. So for his birthday I made him a drivers coat with some awesome buttons and a 50's Russian Engineers cap. He of course loved it. It is made of Moleskin and took many many hours. Plus he lost some weight during the time it took to make it so it is rather big on him now. lol
I found this great fabric at Hobby Lobby for only a dollar a yard! Since my boys love camp I made some pants. Just a normal pajama like pant with some pockets that had velcro. For some reason my oldest wanted the waistband to be red. Not sure why but it's very distinctive and he loves them!
(MAy 2) I made some shorts for my littlest shorty with some leftover fabric. Too bad this freak snow storm is not allowing him to wear them. lol
