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!
