more crafting…

Standard

We had rainy days off and on all week so I got caught up on ornament making for the year.  My goal is to make 1 ornament a month so my YOE tree will have some cute new ornaments.

Here is a birdie I made using attic24’s tutorial.  In my opinion, you can never have too many birdies on your tree. 

And this little house was made using a pattern from Fa La La La Felt.  I pretty much did everything wrong…wrong tan color, wonky window, too few scallops…but that doesn’t bother me.  I’ve learned to not let imperfections bug me!

this is a little rabbit inspired by Bijou’s Whimsy.  Her work is amazing.

and this is a bunny inspired by something I saw on etsy.  It has a thick coat of gloss on it which made it really hard to photograph but you get the idea.  I simply couldn’t take any photos of it without it looking a bit blurred. ( photography is NOT one of my strengths!)

When I carted all my supplies back into the sewing room, I saw Leo and immediately thought of the storybook ” Princess and the Pea.”  He looks so cozy on his little tower of kitty beds!

sleep well, sweet prince…

About yarnigras

its the little things that bring me joy...my children's laughter, my husband holding my hand, Ginger's thump of her tail each and every time I see her. A jar of buttons or marbles, some pretty yarn; planting seeds and then watching them grow. Helping a turtle to cross the road, discovering tree frogs and toads in our yard...watching a snail meander across a potted plant or a ladybug run to the tip of my finger then fly away. The smell of hay, saddles and horses; finishing a project that I know will make someone happy, cooking someone's favorite meal, finding something for my garden...like a hummingbird's nest...how amazing is God's world!

  1. Today, I am making one of those birds. Everyone is doing them and I’ve wanted to for the longest time but haven’t … so now’s the time. All of your ornaments are great. I don’t think there is anything wrong with that little house. Looks pretty darn cute to me. I need to make some felt stuff. Leo is smart to find a comfy place to rest his little head. Just adorable! Best wishes and blessings, Tammy
