What happens when you take some scissors, thread, stuffing, buttons, a pair of mismatched socks and miss your Sunday afternoon nap?
You create a SOCK MONKEY!!!!
I have longed for quite some time to make one of these adorable creatures. I was just waiting for the right pair of socks to jump out at me!!! I found these pairs at Dollar General on clearance!!! That made me even happier! I spent my Sunday afternoon creating a new stuffie that my daughter immediately claimed as "Mr. Monkey"! I wanted to name her Millicent. Boy, you'd get a kick out of hearing Callie say THAT name! ;)
She wanted a picture of "Mr. Monkey" on her head! I'm going to have to make another one now--for ME!
Getting a head start of summer play shirts for Samuel. I tried some reverse coverstitching on these and I LOVE the results!
The orange one was the sample and turned out WAY too wide. That's what you get for sewing while your son is sleeping! :) Oh well.....it will work as a sleeper shirt!
Still have 3 more cut out waiting to be sewn up into something wearable!
Samuel tried on the shirt and he said, "Mommy, I LOVE this shirt. It's so warm and comfy!" Makes sewing all the more rewarding when your child says stuff like that!!!!
15 coin purse & tissue holders. These will be shipped off to Mexico tomorrow. Hopefully the snowstorm isn't as bad as predicted and I CAN get to the post office tomorrow!!
A close-up (fuzzy one) of the boxed corners of one of the tissue holders. Don't you just LOVE that lime green mushroom fabric??? I do!!!
