Blanket Stitch again… with Carribean twine from the Twinery and the white on Sheldon is from Doodlebug, the holiday Twine set that I linked to in my last post… links at the bottom.  oh man!  Just linking him up to SLS and I see I did him upside down to the picture on the package!!! ugh.  His head is supposed to be bigger than his body!  Figures. *sigh*  Oh well, I still LOVE this!!!  I will have to make another with a BIG head! lol

The felt I used is from Taylored Expressions… Tiffany, Avocado, Marshmallow, Charcoal and Black.  I colored a scrap of Marshmallow with an orange copic sketch marker and then trimmed out a teeny carrot nose and glued the eyes, nose, scarf and buttons on with Tombow Mono Multi glue.  (green lids)

 

The candy cane is an organic, no artificial food dye, candy cane that I get at Christmas time at Whole Foods or through one of the online stores.  : )

 

One more look and holler if you have any questions…

Memory Box Plush Mitten dies…

 

Pam Sparks Plush Mitten Felt 2

 

 

A month ago or so, Cindy from SLS sent me this mitten cut from felt to stitch up!  I finally got around to it a couple weeks ago.  I have the Plush Frosty Mitten die now and more felt, so I wanted to make a ‘pair’!  Well, I have three pieces of three different reds and none of them are big enough to cut four mittens! So she began to cry! haha

But not for long… you’ll see my pair, a couple photos down but I cut and stitched it in cardstock just to show that it can be done!  : )  I’m on the scout for bigger pieces of felt now!

A close up of the snowflake… and yes it’s handmade… I just now saw, looking at this photo, the signature mistake that you’re supposed to see in anything handmade! Crying again. lol

ok – Here’s the pair that I cut and stitched in cardstock… it worked great, didn’t tear or anything.  I used Maraschino Bakers Twine from the Twinery to sew the blanket stitch on all the mittens and Peapod Bakers Twine from the Twinery to sew the holly leaves on the ‘pair’.  I used a needle from a pack that just said book binding needles.  Sorry I don’t have a size to tell you.

I had to google for a refresher course on adding on thread and going around corners… I really liked this site HERE.

The holly leaves on the mitten pair are from the Plush Holly Leaves and Berries die.

I made sure I started in the same place on each mitten so that I would have long tails to knot together so I can hang them as ornaments or easy use them to embellish a gift package.

Oh, to make a pair, you do have to use the back side of the mitten cut but because you are stitching around the edge, you can’t tell!

I used to hand sew all the time so this was fun!  I’m going to do up some more of the new Memory Box Plush dies!

Thanks for stopping by!  What are you making for Christmas?
