Sergei's needle felted friend gets hip.

Been working a bit more on Serge's holiday gift, took some pics along the way and thought i'd share.
 Friend is gender neutral for now...figured serge will tell us if it's a boy or a girl.

Fancy new head of hair made from pretty goldish wool, shaped and needled into place.
Has white patch to match Sergee's own, and...
A RAT TAIL! mmm hmmm, you saw it right. Is that the baddest, or what?



Gonna have a hood with teddy ears....

Pants in progress... (sleeves of jacket, just put one inside the other and sewed up crotch...super quick and easy..hemmed top and put a drawstring through..ta da)

New wardrobe additions include: white tank top, striped cap, super cape anchor necklace and tiger print wrist cuff... I made Sergei a hat and cuff to match as well, and if you know serge, you know  that he already has a collection of capes to match. Pretty sure thats gonna be his fave part of the mini wardrobe.

Then i decided to turn this awkwardly fitting thermal of mine into matching shirts for Serge and friend.
So i used the trusty technique of creating a pattern by tracing a well fitting shirt (adding seam allowance of course..)



There  we go...

our nest: #1














i love seeing what other peoples houses look like on the inside, so i thought i'd share some pics of the lovely little love nest where we spend most of our time...
needless to say, it is not always so clutter free.
i like to keep it simple, and at least 95% of what i own is from craigslist and thrift stores...
if you look real close, you can see 2 sweet angels nestled in the blankie..and how convenient that my craft corner is not in eyes view... mountainss and mountains of yarn, ribbon, elastic and fabric, thats what you are not seeing... soon though, soon, as my craft area is undergoing a drastic makeover...



ok, i just found this terrible pic of my sewing area from a strange angle...
i dont know...
