brown bear ornament

Hi!  Well, koala is on his way to his new home!  I didn't think he'd leave quite as quickly as he did so we'll definitely miss him.  Sometimes it's hard to let go of the things you make by hand.  I'll try to make another but my list of items to remake is getting longer.  Today I'm sharing his friend, brown bear which is also a cute little ornament.

Here's koala and brown bear together.  Brown bear is just a bit smaller than koala.  He has arms and legs and wears the cutest red sweater.  I crocheted him using a pattern from Amy of Little Muggles and the pattern is HERE.  I found the Little Muggles site by accident when I was looking for cute ornaments to make.  He is really round and cute!

You can prop him up to stand on his legs with some wiggling but he might topple over.  He is pretty lightweight. 

He also comes with a tag for gift giving.  The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn and fits pretty perfectly.

His nose is felt with a little black stitch.  The nose and felt inner ears are hot glued on.

One of the cutest things about him is his red and white sweater!  And his little arms!  Here's a backside view.

He has a red ribbon to hang on the tree too.  My kids love this guy so much.  More so than the koala for some reason so they found it hard to believe that he didn't sell first!  I have to tuck away my crocheted pieces so the kids don't handle them too much.  Maybe I'll make one for our tree too.

I also listed a bunch of 2018 calendars last night!  I hope the listings make sense.  I usually try not to list items at night when I'm tired but wanted to get things crossed off my to do list.  I'll share details about each calendar at a later time but you can head to shop for a sneak peek if you're curious.

Thanks so much for reading!

Snowman gift card holder

Hi!  I was planning to post this last night but I was just too tired to write or think of complete sentences.  It's been a busy week with the boys on Fall break and still trying to finish up a bunch of crafts.  I have been trying to make some crocheted crafts to put in my Etsy shop and finally I'm done with one.  It's a crocheted snowman that can hold a gift card or anything actually that is small enough to fit in the pouch.  The pattern is designed by ChiWei Ranck of One Dog Woof and can be found HERE . Here's the little snowman with his arms folded over in the front to look like he is hugging the card.  I added this fun card that I stamped.  You can definitely add in a gift card too behind this card. The gift card reaches under his nose. This is how the little opening of the pouch looks.  I hope I can make more of these little guys.  These would be so cute for teachers and I think it would be easy to put a little wire through the hat and then use it as

all occasion tags

Hello!  I have more tags to share today.  I kept these simple too to be used on most any occasion.  They have no sentiments on them. I used MFT's cute Birdie Brown Bitty Bears stamp set.  These were on my wish list for a while and I kept going back and forth about purchasing them especially because I wanted the dies to cut them out too and those were very expensive!  Geez, remember the old days when we used to fussy cut everything out by hand? This is the next 6 tags.  There's also a cute bear with a Santa hat that I didn't include in the photos.  This was a pretty quick project since I kept the bears white!  Not much coloring on these tags but they are still cute and colorful. I thought I was going to be doing more stamping but I've actually gone on to crochet more!  I've made 3 more crochet projects that I'll share soon.  Sometimes I do get the urge to color something but these days it's so much easier to pick up some yarn and my hook and crochet

coffee cup shaped cards

Hi!  I think after this post I may need a little nap!  My right shoulder is actually feeling worn out from all the typing and photo editing I've been doing lately.  And this cooler weather is making me drowsy.  It's getting cold here already! I made a bunch of these coffee shaped cards using a die from Honey Bee Stamps .  It's a cute coffee set but the die is extra long so it would probably help to have a longer platform to diecut.  I just have the standard sized one so I would pass it through once in my Big Shot and then rotate the cardstock and die carefully to cut the other end.  Manageable but the longer platform would be more convenient! I embossed the front of the card with some pretty snowflakes.  I think this is a Sizzix embossing folder.  And then stamped the coffee sleeve with some Lawn Fawn stamps. This is the inside.  The gift card slot does not come with this coffee cup die set.  I cut that opening with one of the dies from MFT's gift card dies.
