Those are adorable ! I only wish my kitties would play with cloth mice, however they like the crinkle balls.

I'm trying to figure out how to make crinkle balls. Do you think if I put a piece of a stiffer plastic wrap (like the bags spices sometimes come in) into a toy with stuffing around it, it would still be safe?
For crinkle, we've always used old mylar balloons(those silver heleum balloons...)

I got some iridescent ornaments (I kinda wish they'd been just clear now), poured some craft glue inside, used a thick paint brush to spread the glue evenly around the ornament and as far up as I could, then poured some seed beads in and kept rotating the ornament around until all the beads were stuck to glue. So easy, and really cute!

Those are awesome!!

these are really cute!  is it difficult stitching through the stabilizer?  i ordered some t-shirt stabilizer and got it in the mail yesterday, so you've definitely inspired me to get started on something new!
Not at all! The stabilizer is super easy to poke through:) Get started, it's sooooo fun!!!!!

27  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Star Advent Calendar on: December 13, 2008 12:52:10 PM
I am making quite a few of these and one is finally all the way done!!!!! Each Calendar has 25 pockets (all a different Christmas fabric. 25 stars made from felt or wood and paint, all different and 25 different buttons on each tree. They really are cute. Since this is the first one finished, a few things have been altered, but this is the general idea.

sorry about the glare and blur, but my skills are lacking lately..

and here is one with just the buttons, no stars

The hubby did the wooden painted stars I did the felt and the sewing n such.

Thanks to MonkeyThumb and Gizmonic for the buttons, wouldn't have been possible without them:)

Thanks everyone! I hope they are as well received a week and a half from now:)
You did a FANTASTIC job on those!  The patterns are cute, and your stitching is well-done.  I know I would love to receive these as gifts for my daughter, or even myself!  How was the stitching on t-shirts?  I've never had much luck...

I used the sulky water soluable stabilizer and it works pretty well with that, without it, it's pretty bad...

So, for Christmas Presents for the little kids in the famil (like 18 cousins, but we only do things for the ones under ten) I embroidered Tee-shirts from Wal-mart. I love these tees and actually believe I'm getting good at this:) These are all free patterns from Andrea Zuills Blog (Thanks Andrea!!!!!!!!!)

The first is the Unicorn and Pegasus. This one is for a six year old little girl and she loves these fantastical creatures! I had don a tee with the unicorn on it before, but this was my first time with the pegasus.

The Second is The Penguin on a light pink tee. My first time with metallic floss (the fuzzies on the hat) and I wasn't too upset with it. i'll use it again. Plus the stem stitch on that hat, turned out great. i'm very pleased with that. This is for a two year old little girl.

The Third is the Birds from Andrea. This is my fave, and again, i think I'm getting kinda good. Lots of little French knots and the entire flower stem is done in stem stitch. I really love this one, and if it fit me, i would probably consider keeping it. This one is for a 10 year old little girl and is on a light blue tee.

The shiny parts of the tees is the water soluable stabilizer that will be washed away when i wash them....
I hope they are well received, because if I had a little girl, I would def be making tons of these for her!!!!
As always, please feel free to give suggestions!
