This was a fun little guy to make. He has a two-toned corduroy jacket, a bright blue backpack, and a red cashmere scarf. None of that would be good for camouflage in the forest but I love the bright colors!
And a striped sweater vest under his jacket.
So, all these Tiny Worlds? I’ve been making them all for the Holiday window of Gather Here, my favorite local fabric/yarn store. We set it up this morning.
I will go back when it isn’t raining and there is no glare on the glass so I can post better shots of the finished window. Here are the last of the tiny worlds that I made for it.
And then I tried out some new ideas! A castle in a gold tea cup-
This one has the garden I’ve always wanted. It was a challenge to photograph all the topiary.
And lastly, I stayed up late last night to finish this one. That meant that with the rain this morning, there was no way to take a good picture. But, here it is in the window, a tiny town on a hill!
and a few more Tiny Worlds!
I’m working on getting some fish and some owls into the shop. We’ll see how far I get today. Enjoy your day if you are celebrating Thanksgiving!
In between all the Tiny Worlds!
One orange scrappy-
and 3 Snowy Owls!
Some of these will go in my Etsy shop but not all. Two are already flying out to Illinois to be part of a Land Of Nod pop-up shop on November 30 in Rockford, Illinois. At least one other is slated for another project. But I have a few more partially finished that might be done in the next month. I will keep you informed when I get things listed.
Like I said a few posts ago, all kinds of busy around here. Now, fish.
Another one of those red cups.
2 of the projects I mentioned in the last post involve me making Tiny World pin cushions. I am working on them a little at a time, so I’ll post them in a trickle between other finished items.
This tea cup has a book/writing/reading theme. Interesting!
This strawberry cup is say Spring to me.
I’m not sure why but I find this tea cup pattern in the thrift store fairly often.
That’s all for today!
Yes, I did have too much fun figuring out how to make a felt cutlass!
And I knew I had some buckles somewhere so I started searching my bookcase and found a cigar box full of buttons I’d forgotten about- like a surprise gift to me from the past!
I’m not sure if it is obvious over here in my sweet corner of the internet but my life has been a bit CRAZY lately- and mostly in a good way. I thought that things were going to slow down for me after mid-October which was when I needed to have everything submitted for the sale at One Kings Lane. Instead, every day seems to bring more exciting opportunities into my email box. I was hoping to have my Etsy shop chock full of goodies for the start of the Holiday season, but instead I have been selling like gangbusters (Hurray!) and it is pretty bare. I’m sewing as fast as I can, but I’ve also said yes to a number of (fun, amazing, fantastic!) things that mean my focus is elsewhere. I am so behind on emails and if I told you I would make you something… well, hopefully? It might still be a while though. It is exciting and very busy times around here!
