Here’s a little bear I made from that same big head kitty pattern. The bear is much smaller and made of this great soft velvety fur I found at Hancock Fabrics. I love it because it has sort of a vintage look to it. I used some cool buttons I found in the sale bin for eyes and I love them! So does Oscar. This is immediately his new favorite stuffed because it has detachable parts that can be yanked off and choked on. Guess this guy is going on up the top shelf for a while.
Yesterday was such a fun day. I had a 3 hour reprieve! Tim watched Oscar for me while I went into the city to have lunch with my best crafty girlfriend. We caught up and then did some scheming. In the works are learning how to silkscreen our own fabric, joining the local stitch n bitch, practicing our embroidery (which I really need!) and visiting a fabric warehouse she unearthed over in Pilsen. I’m so excited!! After lunch we went to this cool shop Penelope’s that had great stuff including these excellent bags by Queenbee. I’m inspired now to finally try out a bag in the vinyl I picked up a while ago. Also at the shop was this great book Mascotte!… which lead me to Lulu. This is the bit that was in the book that lured me in.. cutyzoo. And be sure to click the icon collection too!
So, maybe after some practice I’ll be able to embroider as well as this gal.. craftlog.
