Stuffed animals

Awhile ago I bought this pattern at Joanne's for only .99 cents! I am so glad I did because it was Sooooooooo easy! I thought it would have taken me all year long to make this but after the first one....

I decided to make some more!

The soft baby blue giraffe shown above has found a new home last week. I sent this one over to my sister who just had a baby boy.

I also added a cute little lanalulu label on each one.

The red polka dotted bunny was my first ever attempt in making a stuffed bunny using a Mary Engelbrit pattern from this book that my mother in law gave me for Christmas. So I thought I'd showcase him here.

I almost forgot....I went to Patchwork Pottery and followed their tutorial to make my labels. Aren't they adorable! This tutorial is also on the right side of my blog so that way I can easily go there for future references.


Iron on appliques

This month was my sister's birthday so I decided I wanted to make her something and decided to try the iron on appliques. I have never tried this before and wanted to see how easy or hard it was. Well, it was both. The process was very easy as long as you pick a simple design to cut out and iron on. My sister is a marathon runner so I chose a runner for one shirt, the number 26.2 on another shirt, and really wanted to put an image of a really cute little chick on the other shirt with the words underneath "running chick", but there was so many letters and so tiny so instead I put another runner on that one. So this is what I ended up doing.

so what does 26.2 mean? I guess only a marathon runner would know what that means.

Hooded Shirt

This is my attempt at trying to sew a hooded shirt, with no pattern!

This is the view from the back.

This is the front view.

Yeah, I think the hood is way to big. Opps! Kind of reminds me of that little green character from Star Wars. Yeah, my husband (HUGE star wars fan) would be a bit disappointed that I don't remember his name. Oh well.
