tuxedo sam!

Hello!  Wow, see another post!  I am trying to be productive here but seriously I think maybe it's time for me to head out and get a part time job?  Maybe that is why I'm kind of restless these days.  I'm in the process of sewing up some cute Halloween things.  And I just finished my youngest one's costume.  It isn't anything fancy but I think it's funny and cute.  I just need to find him some white shorts.

Today, I'm sharing a little Tuxedo Sam that I crocheted.  I found the tutorial HERE.  I love all the little things she makes especially the Sanrio stuff and she has a new book out with patterns of a lot of characters.  It's listed on Amazon HERE and I haven't bought it so I don't know how the pattern in the book compares with the free ones she has on her blog.

I added a little purple clip so my daughter could hang it up some where if she wanted to but he does stand on his own which I'm happy about.  He is pretty fat with stuffing.  The only thing I would change if I knew how is his white tummy.  It's kind of bulky.  

And he made my hand hurt especially my thumb since the hook I used was so much smaller than I'm used to.  But overall, I like the way he turned out and my daughter likes him too so I guess that's all that matters.

That's it for today.  Thanks for stopping by!

Wow, you have major crafting skills. I can barely crochet a basic single crochet patch. You are so talented. I can't wait to see what you will post next.

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.
