1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Overweight elephant & his cactus pincushion buddy on: August 21, 2008 09:14:29 PM
First off, the elephant:



He's a birthday present for my husband's one-year-old cousin. Made out of microfleece, which I will never use again. But he is soft & cuddly.





I need to add something to the tail, which wasn't supposed to be like that AT ALL, haha.

And now on to, my sweet cactus-ey creation!





Yes, I did make him a face out of pins. Very sad, I know. But I figured, what better out of both flora and fauna to turn into a pincushion? Plus, I had the little vase thing sitting around.

Thanks for checking them out!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Who has my scissors? AKA: Craft apron on: August 21, 2008 09:05:50 PM


I found this pattern in a craft book, I'll edit later to add the name because it's slipped my mind. I did modify the pattern a bit, though, as the whole thing is supposed to be done with old sweaters. Those are stashed away, and I donated all unwanted stuff this past winter. Also, I wanted a mini-pocket...So:

I pulled together a mishmash of fabrics.



Who (the owl's name) has my scissors, lol. I tried to get him to fray a bit, to add to the "rustic charm". Not pictured is the "Xtreme rustic" jute twine used as the back tie. I go too far sometimes.





I love my little pencil pocket!!! First post, so please let me know what you think.
