These little peg people are for my Lissy. I had so much fun making them. Logan saw me making them and requested some for himself. So that little orange guy on the end is for him and if you know Logan, you'll know that the little orange guy is a perfect fit for him. These were SOOOO easy to make. I bought the pegs at Michaels, slapped a few coats of paint on their bodies, drew eyes on with a sharpie, and covered the whole peg in Mod Podge. For the girls I braided some embroidery thread for hair and stuck it on with hot glue. I sewed up some pointy gnome hats and glued those on with craft glue. Done. Super easy.
This is a "Tickity", which is my own little creation. I make them for babies. They make a good first lovie because they're easy to grasp. They make great teethers too because they are made from washcloths. One of his ears crinkles. They were both supposed to crinkle but I had issues that I didn't notice until he was all stitched up. So, he's a bit unique. : )
A few felt monogrammed tree ornaments.
Some wrist pin cushions. I found a free tutorial for these online which, of course, I now can't find to post here for you. I'll keep looking.
These are for that amazing man I mentioned above. He always complains that we don't have enough dish towels. I had bought some clearanced fabric that I loved so I adorned some "bar mops" with strips of it. He won't care what they look like so I used my favorite fabrics, which makes me very happy. I know this is an odd gift for a grown man, but I'm having trouble with ideas for him. We don't usually give each other stuff anyways....since the kids came along. This is just a practical gift with a personal touch that I know he'll appreciate.
Comfy pants for my kids. Our house is COLD, and these sew up so fast. I bought the blizzard fleece for $2.99 a yard on sale! I couldn't pass that up. The deer are for Lissy, and I have a matching pair, which will make the pants all the more special for her. The orange ones are for Logan and though you can't tell, the black sections are dragons, which he loves. The crazy pair are Kian's. I was hoping to have scraps from the deer or dragons to make his but didn't so my mom rummaged through her fleece scraps and found just enough of that crazy print for him. Its a bit wild for me, but they will keep him very warm. : ) My mom also made each of them a pair for Christmas. So between pairs made by her in the past years which keep getting handed around in this house, and the 2 pairs we made between us, the kids will be VERY warm around the house this winter.
