I just posted about a book called Sewing Tiny Toys. Most of the patterns included are for felt, and they make cute miniature animals (3-4ish inches tall) like dogs, bunnies, cows... a tyrannosaurus rex...  Grin

Hope this helps!

I recently found this book at my library: Sewing Tiny Toys by Carolyn Vosburg Hall. It's admittedly a little outdated but its full of patterns for tiny felt 'plushies' you can make. All kinds of animals and a pattern for a little girl and boy. I've already made the 3 inch teddybear and a tiny bunny rabbit (just in time for Easter!). They really are adorable so I thought I'd share this find.

I don't have pictures yet of my wee little ones  Cry. I'd like to post them, though, if I get the chance.

The brown pair gives me the warm fuzzies  Cheesy

And the pink pair makes me think of peppermints! And peppermint always makes me happy!

Great job- your creativity is inspiring!  Grin

837  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / fusible product problems? on: February 24, 2008 11:28:34 AM
I've been trying to sew more lately, and some of the projects I've attempted involve fusible interfacing and the fusible webbing (adheres two pieces of fabric stuff) and I keep having the same problems- it's not sticking. I'm following the packaged directions and I feel like my iron is set to the right temp (cotton setting, typically). I even used the damp cloth as instructed for one of them. Inevitably the backing peels off as soon as the pieces cool off... Any suggestions?

Holey Moley- those are great! Those pin ups are so perfect- I even know a few Knitting Librarians that would really get a kick out of this!!  Grin
840  COOKING / Dessert / It may be a little late for pumpkin, but this one's still a keeper! on: January 17, 2008 02:26:18 PM
If there's already a recipe like this floating about, please forgive me for not looking closer!  Wink

Got this one from my sister- who got it from her boss's wife, who got it from, etc, etc.... Then, like, 6 more people asked me for a copy of the recipe at our Christmas party. This is one that definately gets passed around!

1 15 oz.     canned pumpkin puree*
1 c.            sugar
1 c.            evaporated milk
1 tsp.         vanilla
1 tsp.         cinnamon
1 8.25 oz.   butter yellow cake mix**
1 c.            chopped pecans
1/2 c.         melted butter (1 stick)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all ingredients except pecans, cake mix and butter. Spread in a lightly buttered 9x13 baking dish. Distribute dry cake mix (** make sure this is a butter yellow mix, not an ordinary yellow cake mix.
They are NOT the same and it will make all the difference in your end product!!) in an even layer over entire surface of pumpkin mix. Top with even layer of pecans (I like to use more than a cup, try 1 1/2 cups for a really nutty result) and drizzle melted butter over surface. Bake for 30- 40 minutes or until top is lightly browned.
Keep a close eye after 25 minutes, the nuts can burn quickly.
*You can use a 30 oz can of pumpkin if you wish. It will give you a thicker layer of filling, and I would add a little extra vanilla and cinnamon to compensate. You don't have to add any extra evaporated milk. You can also combine one egg into the pumpkin mix if you prefer a more custard-like filling. Just make sure you bake it thoroughly to cook the egg. If the top is browning too quickly (a.k.a. burning...  Grin) cover with foil while baking.

My sister's copy says to top with whipped cream and sprinkle with ground nutmeg- I used a box of DreamWhip and mixed the nutmeg in with that. (It was like fluffy eggnog- yummy!  Smiley) and served in a bowl on the side. Super tasty!
