I thought this little embroidery pattern was so cute, I decided to try and make a little softie from it....I used black felt, and old orange, vintage button eyes..I still can't find my camera cord but I managed to scan it in...best I could do..he does have legs..LOL
This is one of my favorite gifts to give at Christmas. Make the jar really pretty with ribbons and such...add a pretty recipe card for the cake and another card for the starter recipe..everyone likes it and it is like a round robin thing....you never run out because someone always has some starter for you...

I entered a contest and the rules were to make something for your garden from junk.. ..it just had to be weird or funky, not pretty....here was my entry....I can't believe I'm showing this. I guess I have no shame... If it makes you smile,,,I'm happy..
I know this is mostly needlework group but I need to know how to make some cheap frames and was wondering if anyone can help me. Do you have a cheap way of making a frame for your needlework? I have both needlework and art prints, I need to make frames for...they are so expensive to buy..
But my problem with the art prints is their size..they are 16 by 16 and I can't find any anywhere that size..I can't afford to take them to a framing shop..they are outrageous..
