Christmas Creations Part I


I am furiously working on Christmas gifts! All the kids in my family will be getting a softie pet from me this year. Martha Stewart featured the book "Sock and Glove" by Miyako Kanamori over the summer and I absolutely fell in love with the little dog they made on the show. The book is available on Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/Sock-Glove-Creating-Charming-Cast-Off/dp/1557885168) and I highly recommend it!

You don't need a lot of sewing expertise and there are 13 different projects in the book.

Here are my first set of softie dogs.


Tomorrow I will be working on a Panda Bear and cat!

Other projects I am working on (and will post instructions for) are photo transfer tiles with a crackle finish, place mats made from hand dyed fabric (much easier than it sounds!) and a holiday throw pillow with a cute felt applique!

So check back each week to see which project I am working on - - all of my projects can be created in a weekend!

Oh Shelley! Those dogs are the cutest! Thanks for your get well wishes I'm healing really well now- the no bellybutton on a man would have freeeeaked me out too! My partner thinks it is hillarious, of course, and has to try and stick his finger in my bellybutton at any opportunity *bleurgh*
