animal scarves

I made scarves this year as gifts to my friends and family (kept a fox for myself :D). I got the ideas and fox pattern from prudentbaby.com.

I hand-sewed my ears so they stick up a little bit. I also edited the pattern to make the wolf nose wider and guidelines for the bear.

I used soft flannel fabric and ultra cuddle fabric for underneath (so soft!). The scarves are a yard and a half long and I used 1/4″ seam allowance on everything except for the long body I used 1/2″.

penguin ornaments

I couldn’t find a lot of cute penguin ornaments so I made my own! I found a tutorial from craftberrybuch.com

I didn’t add the feet on mine, I think they look cuter without them.

top hat for the tree

Dec 24, 2013 at 6:37 pm (hats, holiday) (, , , , , , , , , )

Instead of the traditional star or angel at the top of the tree, I wanted to do something different. I decided to make our tree an awesome top hat – like a sir!

I made the top hat out of burlap lined with cardboard to make it real stiff. I used a mixture of sewing and hot glue.

I went a little crazy and decorated almost my entire place. These are just a few things I did :]

Made a cute penguin print table runner and got those cute top hat baskets from Michaels

Bought 4 yds of candy cane print fleece from Joanns and covered the couch with it

Found this sheer snowflake fabric at Joanns to cover the two end tables (it got glitter everywhere!) and made a candy cane candle holder for the little fellow. I used a glass bowl and taped the candy canes to it and tied a bow around them to hold in place.

Searched high and low through all the picks at Michaels and created this wreath for the front door.
