Happy New Year everyone! Well,I planned on posting all through December of all the Christmas crafting and sewing, and I did do a lot of that. I took photos for posting but time got away and of course now it seems silly to post as most of us are christmas'ed-out! With that being said I had to post these because technically these are wintery... not christmas-y, not to mention so fun to make. I must warn you though they are addicting! I had printed out the directions here and I had the supplies ready and then I saw them on over at Bella Dia she 's to talented! Here are more of the ones I made:
These made fun Kindergarten teacher gifts.
I think a glue gun would work faster but I used FabriTac. I put all my supplies on a tray so I could sit on the couch next to Steve while he watched TV. I think I need to have my mom finally teach me how to crochet. I liked being able to make something with out being tucked away in the sewing room. Steve liked it too because he could watch whatever he wanted. Mostly the National G. channel. Some seriously cool stuff on that channel.
I think this purple one is my fave! She's a little sassy. The sweaters don't even have to be wool since you don't need to felt them. I have the word out to friends and family to give me their old or ruined sweaters. When someone gives you their old sweater make a pine cone kid from it and give it back to them.
I had to make a little boy. So he's a snowboarder....Steve's idea, he even went outside and found a wood chip to cut to shape for me. I didn't have any but tongue depressors would be perfect for a snow board.
I'd love to see pix if anyone else makes some, so let me know if you do!
