Stuffed bear animal

Mom is knitting these adorable stuffed bears for each of her grandchildren.

She is using alpaca wool that she picked up from a renaissance fair in Virginia which will make for a super soft cuddly gift.

She got the pattern for this from allaboutyou.com.

I asked if it was difficult and she said the pattern had great directions.

She still wants to embroider a face and even knit a little jacket which would be super cute!

It sits about 5″ high so makes a perfect size for little ones!

Good luck if you give it a go!

Knitting needle roll organizer

Ok, so Mom bought a whole set of double pointed knitting needles from stitchberry thru Amazon but needed to organize them.

Design Sponge had a cute pattern but she had to change it a bit since she didn’t have exactly what they used.

She didn’t have 1″ twill tape so she used 1/2″ bias tape.

The drop cloth frays easily so she sewed tape all the way around.

Her needles are very large, so she made the last few pockets 3″ instead if 1 1/2.

It rolls up nice and neat and she can easily see the needles she needs.

She’s going to use some of the empty pockets for scissors and such.

This is made from her painting drop cloth which only has a tiny piece left now!

Jaquard bunny

This is a cute baby stuffed animal that my little ones will absolutely love! Mom has been making and mailing things for our little one who isn’t here yet and our toddler claims it all for him as soon as it arrives! She will have to start making two of everything. 🙂

For this project Mom got the yarn on sale at Michaels.

You can find the pattern for this at http://www.bernat.com/product.php?P=1&LGC=babyjacquards

She ended up running out of yarn so used a pink and while yarn to finish the sides. She’a also thinking of embroidering a face on the bunny which would be cute but I think it’s fine without one.

Hamburger and Accessories

Mom made these hamburgers and parts for our little cousin. She added them to her kitchen set and enjoys playing with them and pretending to make everyone lunch!

I love the food items because they’re soft and fun!

Here is a link to a lot of different food patterns to try!
