Wednesday Faves

I plan to do more on this blog, moving forward, than I have in the past. Many of you have asked for tutorials on my felting processes. I hope to include some. I want to give you some tips and tricks- maybe some free patterns- on Fridays. Wednesdays will be about my recent favorite projects. Maybe I’ll have some new designs to show you, or maybe it will be something completely different.

 

So, it’s now time for our first installment of Wednesday Faves!

I have been loving the Spring props lately. I feel like this winter has just dragged on and on. This week, though, the sun is shining and giving me hope that it won’t be winter forever.

Felting, felting, and more felting

Holy moly!  Has it really almost been a year?!  Since the last time I posted, my felting projects have really boomed.  Most of what I do is for newborn photography- hats, outfits, props, etc.  That’s what this post will mostly show.  Within the last year, I was pregnant and had another baby- another little girl.  🙂  She was born on May 4th.

Also, since last time (and probably a huge contributing factor to why I haven’t written in so long), we moved from Oregon to Idaho.  We moved to Oregon from Utah on our 1st anniversary.  We lived there for 8 years and had all of our babies, except for Hana, with the same doctor in the same hospital.  We loved living there, but we are loving our current home in Idaho.

So, last time, I was just getting started with felting.  I made a whole bunch of my pumpkin, apple, and sunflower hats.  From there, I was making everything from reindeer and Christmas mice…

…to butterflies and dinosaurs

I started making stuffies (little stuffed toys for the baby to hold) and more intricate designs…

And now, I’m doing pretty much whatever comes to mind (or whatever a customer suggests).

Crochet: Heart Stitch Hat and Pants Pattern

DSC_0239ppdIt’s here!  It’s here!  It’s finally here!

By far, my most popular post is this one about my heart stitch leg warmers.  I’ve gotten so many messages about a matching hat, like Tessa’s wearing in the photos.

So, I present to you, the  promo flyerIt comes packed with cool stuff, like a photo tutorial to help you through making a whole pair of pants.

The hat can be made in all sizes- from newborn all the way up to adult.

The pattern walks you through making the pants virtually any size (I totally want to see adult heart stitch pants), but includes measurements for newborn thru child (4-5 years) size.
