Bear: Tutorial and Pattern Last week I showed you one of the projects I’ve being working on. I wanted to make something really special for our wedding photographers, so as a Thank you present I made 2 little bears for their son and daughter. IMPORTANT: This project is not for beginners, and if you have never made stuffed animals and are not familiar with patterns, I would recommend you to start with a more simple project and attempt this teddy bear once you have the skills and patience to put together pattern pieces and are familiar with your sewing machine (if you are not fully hand-stitching it).
Thank you for such kindness and sympathy towards my last post. My grandmother will be greatly missed. And we’re all doing perfectly well. She’s one happy lady right now. :) I have been a little set back with holiday prep, due to my trip to CA. But I stayed up late last night, finishing up a few things because I can hardly wait until Christmas morning. Make your own Magnetic Paper Dolls (and a fabric cover for your metal base)

These petite stuffed animals -- a Fair Isle lamb, a cable-knit chicken, and an argyle pig -- are so cuddly and simple to make, you'll want a menagerie. The toys, which range in height from 5 to 8 inches, are each assembled from a few basic felt pieces and plumped up with batting. Appendages, such as floppy ears or wings, are easily added during sewing. Wrap up the woolly creatures to give to your favorite tots, or use them as stocking stuffers.

July 22nd, 2010 I’m sure you know what a tangram is but didn’t know it was called a tangram (when I looked it up, I think I might have typed, “that clever triangle-y puzzle thing”). If you’ve never even seen one, well then: it’s sort of a puzzle and sort of a game that involves five triangles, one square, and one parallelogram. elsie marley » Blog Archive » wooden tangram tutorial

This post is part of a series created for Positively Splendid. It aired last week, and I’m reprinting it on my blog for all of you. When I think of summer, I think of two things: HOT and “Ohmygoshhh, the kids are going to be home for how many months?”. Sponge Water Bombs
