A Rooster In My Garden Felt Ornament

I’ve been stuck home with bronchitis. In between naps, whining about being sick, and nagged about keeping my behind in bed, I worked on this little rooster. Inspired by our Bantam roosters, Pepper and Clover, you can play with the colors of this felt ornament to match your own rooster. If you’re lucky enough to have one. If you don’t, let me know – we’ve got three and Pepper needs a new home! Click here to download the pattern. Still Standing Sprinter.

The (tiny) elephant in the room

These dainty elephants are best for those with intermediate sewing skills. The stitches are simple, but the small size makes them somewhat tricky. The pattern can also be scaled up to make larger toys—these, without decorations, are best for young children. The pattern (see pictured) is simple and can be made from fabric scraps of almost any type (something without stretch works best, however). Scale the pattern on your computer and print it out.

Decorations include 3-D fabric paint, beads, embroidery, feathers, whatever suits your fancy and your skill level. How To Make a Cut Out Monogram to Hang on a Wall or a Front Door.
