Monkey socks!!!

September 30, 2010

I’m fighting with a doll I’m making – she doesn’t like any of the clothes I’ve made. She might just end up naked at this rate and that wouldn’t be pretty. Meanwhile I did finish these off this morning. They are from the popular Monkey Socks pattern from Cookie A. – which is a free Ravelry download. I’m going to make another pair but using someone’s modified pattern. This was a super easy pattern and don’t they look great!!!!

It’s a severed hand time of year!

September 15, 2010

Yep, it’s the annual severed hand .. but for once not modeled by my little dog! I am supposed to teach this down at the quilt shop next month so I used cotton instead of the wool felt I usually use. I made this one with Pimatex and although I love that fabric it’s probably not the best choice for a pincushion as the pin holes show! But it’s the display piece so it will be fine. I’ll put it on Etsy as a decoration after class is over.
