Some things I’ve made March 18, 2012

My daughter needed a way to keep her phone in the bicycle’s basket and since she loves Doctor Who I whipped up a Tardis Iphone case for her. I have hand-stitched it out of felt on a car trip to Arizona and the only picture of it I have is from the hotel there. (edited to add two more photos)

 

 

 

 

 

 

It closes with a magnetic snap (behind the light) and she usually attaches it to the side of the bike’s basket when out riding. So the phone is padded and it won’t go flying out of the basket when going over bumps.

 

Another thing I wanted to document was the addition to my needle felted nativity scene. I didn’t have a chance to make any before Christmas, but before I had to pack it away I made the three wise men.

And here they are with the rest of the pieces:

I have to remember to take more picture of my projects, especially now that I am trying my hand at sewing. 🙂

The ‘Pay it Forward’ gift that WhingingNinja sent me, has made it already all the way from Australia. I was so excited to find THREE darling needle felted figurines and a sweet card when I opened the envelope! Aren’t they adorable?!!! 🙂

And here they are on my (still unfinished) playscape with a little penguin I made the other day.

Thank you so much Jess!

I am so excited to have made my first little toadstool! I think it is so cute! And to have a place to put it I have started working on a little playscape…

My progress so far… And a close up of the little fungus. 🙂

I just have to show off my first attempt at needle felting.

When I started I had no idea what I was going to make, but as I was busy poking the wool with the needle, I just kind of knew what it wanted to be, you know… They are far from perfect but I love them and I think I will keep them as my Nativity Scene from now on and hopefully add more pieces each year.
