Quickie ornament for the office tree. I had to make the felted balls because I find any pre-made red ones. It wasn't hard, come to find out. I was going to cover them in some sequins but it didn't look right.
I haven't sewn or done much crafting in ages, several weeks, because I was adjusting to a new job and all that comes with that. I get twitchy when I don't craft! Two weeks ago I sat down and made a skirt. Last weekend I cut out fabric for two skirts and a dress, bought some fun printed embroidery panels at a Mexican flea market in south Texas, and buckled down to finish the commission quilts I didn't get done before the new job started.
Doing the hand-stitching on the binding is both boring and soothing. Also, I have the most amazing callouses on my fingers.
I always have too many projects going at once. It's nice sometimes though to have something quick and little so that you feel like you're accomplishing something.
These are for a new little baby friend by the name of Daisy. I didn't make a daisy out of lazy daisy stitches on the booties because of that, but it all makes for something ridiculously cute.
These are made from Simplicity 2867, a reproduction pattern. It's two pieces of felt with two stitches--one up the back seam of the upper and then a big oval to join the upper and the sole. Easy as pie.
I'm a lazy blogger. I have good hair. I own a lot of stuff. Multiple people in my life have called me the most interesting person they know. I don't believe them but I take it as a compliment. I spend most of my time talking or thinking about craft projects and old buildings.
