Little Mouse

Latest creation!  Very cute.  I have no idea why I made it or what to do with it.  But…it’s cute!  Right now it is sitting in a teacup in my kitchen.


New Project

January 11, 2010

I designed and made this yesterday.  It was not easy but, I was in my PJ’s the whole time so that helped ease the pain.

Robert and I were annoyed that our coffee would be cold by the time we wanted a refill or second cup so, he suggested I make it a little cozy.  Here are a few pictures of the new cozy for the French Press.

He’s done!  I think Peepers is a great name for him because the eyes were the most challenging part.  My neighbor asked me if he could buy Peepers for his granddaughter’s 3rd birthday.  I like the idea of Peepers having a 3year old girl!  And it’s really not bad making a little extra money either.  I think I invested $4 in the project and he’s offered me $20.

Teddy Bear

May 14, 2009

Here is my latest project.  He isn’t finished yet but, this way you get to see the work in progress.  He is the biggest project I’ve done yet.  He stands about 12″ tall.   I filled his body with polyester pellets so he is heavier than you would expect.  I still have to make one arm and attach them to his body.  Also he is going to have a scarf or ribbon around his neck.  So far the most difficult part has been attaching his eyes.  They are safety eyes designed so that a child wouldn’t be able pull them off and choke on them.  You can see the picture below.  It is basically a screw with a washer that snaps on the back.  Robert had to invent a tool to get the washer on.  They are really tight and not going anywhere!   Finished photos will be posted soon.  Also, I am entertaining suggestions for his name.

I finished up this little guy today.  Amber named him Shrimp!  He is a gift for a baby boy that is going to be born at the end of the month.  This will be the third boy for my boss and his wife. 




New Projects

These are pictures of my two latest projects.  The hat I made with HomeSpun so it feels great.  I think I’m going to give it to my mom.  That blue color really looks good on her.  The little bear, Bearnard, was my first attempt at making a toy.  I think he turned out ok.  However, I have to keep him for myself because I just love him so much!!  I plan to try another one soon.  I have one project lined up ahead of my next toy.  A hat for my dad!
