I thought I'd add other misc. items I have made as gifts just for the heck of it. :D

kitty ears and tail for halloween...

Wool longies...

A ring sling

A toy Mei Tai

A Pod for a Pixie...

I made this because my other one is off snuggling a new wee one and I needed something new. I decided to be brave and make something with all the different features I like the looks at from other Mt's So this one has a padded waist, seat darts, hoodie hood and the hood folds down into a little pocket when I don't want it. This also has the added benefit of saving me money LOL. Between kids and puppy it took me 3 days and I still have to top stitch a bit. The dog decided it was his and I had to tell him otherwise. With my almost 3 year old. And an apron tie with my 9 month old it got her drool of approval.








Ah she really does love it.

Minkee lined pants.

For cold winter days and cold floors. I just love how these turned out. Next time I do a different waist though I think. I am not as happy about it.

These deserved their own post. My first pair of wool longies. I used a favorite pair of pants as a rough guide and they modifyed when my first attemp had them as low riders.
They are probably a bit bit, I had to try them on this AM but she was in her sleeper and had a thin pampers on. SHe likes them though . Now to wash and lanolize.
Definately a bit big, but they roll nicely and there is plenty of room in the toosh for her biggest dipe.

Oh the joys! I just had a super fluffy fabric filled day and I am giddy with glee!!!!!! I have also been a ver busy girl since the last time I posted. This will be a picture filled post with lots of goodies.

First up tonights project. My youngest wears cloth diapers part time and i was really needing a pair of longies for her. Sadly my favorite WAHM knitting godess was unable to take a custom order and nothing else quite appealed to me. SO I ventured into the world of wool and found some great remnats at my local fabric shop and embellised it a bit :D I am so thrilled at the results. Let's just hope they fit. LOL.

This pod was a special thing I did for a fairy who never recieved her parcel. I also made her a little japanese knot bag.


And my first forray into furniture. I repadded and upholstered he chair and made the little pillow. It's less then prefect but SO much better then it was.

I recently tried my hand at a teething giraffe like the ones seen at starbright baby. These are one of my Darling Daughters favorites too. Now I don't think that I will personally ever attempt one of these again. My first one came out more like an eeyore then a giraffe. LOL This is #2 and it was part of a wrap MT custom order.
This is the MT. It has lightly padded straps and waist and is happily cuddling a new one.
And here are a few misc. things a chalk placemat and a case for my 2nd daughters pump.

The ultamite MT is finished. It combines 2 of my favorite things wraps and Mei Tai. I made it out of a Miami and Ciaro Hoppediz. I also experimented with my machine embroidery skills and Viola! Please ignore me and how bad I look. I have been sick as is my wee one.

The daisy follows soft the sun,And when his golden walk is done,Sits shyly at his feet.He, waking, finds the flower near."Wherefore, marauder, art thou here?""Because, sir, love is sweet!"
We are the flower, Thou the sun!Forgive us, if as days decline,We nearer steal to Thee, --Enamoured of the parting west,The peace, the flight, the amethyst,Night's possibility!~~~Emily Dickinson

My latest attempt at free hand machine embroidery. A Gerbera Daisy. I used a bit of batting to make it 3 dimentional and as the wrap frays a bit it will give more depth. This is probably 8 hours worth of work so far and I still have the carrier to make.

Well the pod is finished and all wrapped up waiting to go to it's new home. Here are a few pictures of the finished product.

I am having allot of fun in the last 2 days trying something new. I was getting board making the same thing over and over again. No surprise really since I am a Gemini and fickle. LOL. So I decided to try something new. I did it freehand on my Pfaff using a modified version of a design I found online here .
This was my first attempt.
This is attempt #2 Much better but I ran out of the grey thread as I was appliqueing it to the pod panel. Stay tuned for finished pictures.
