I didn’t have any red invisible zippers, but I think the white turned out cute!
Above pillow was refashioned from this $2.92
shabby interesting sweater.
for myself :). Pattern here.
a tiny gnome for my grandma. I used the tiny Santa pattern for this with mods suggested by a fellow Ravelry user.
I added a mouth similar to tiny Santa’s mouth after taking the pictures.
Mr. Snowman was made in 2011, but it illustrates perfectly how tiny gnome is.
my own Santa corsage, carefully looked after by Spike
A lost pumpkin (forgot to take a picture of him during the appropriate season). Free pattern here. It comes with instructions for arms and legs, but I refrained from adding these, I like them on other people’s creations, but it just didn’t work for my Russet the Pumpkin.
Freestanding machine embroidered lace reindeer for my secret Santa. I got this pattern from Urbanthreads.com. Love this site. Lots of machine embroidery sites are somewhat dull/oldfashioned, but this one has fun designs. I got this pattern for $1.50 during the Thanksgiving sale.
The mini brads still needed to be added at this point.
Rinsing out the water-soluble stabilizer! The trick to making freestanding lace!
Several baprons for 3 precious newborns
