Felt booties for baby

I had to make a quick gift for a baby yesterday. This is what I came up with. Aren’t they cute?

Free booties pattern

I used Bitty Booties pattern (pdf) by Heather Baileys. The pattern comes in two different sizes, 0-3 months and +6 months.

Teapot pincushion

This is the cutest pincushion. The pattern is by Manuela of Join the mood

Warning: the spout and handle were difficult to turn inside out. I had to make the handle twice and make the tube slightly larger. In frustration I forgot to add the embellishments around the middle and top. Printing the pattern at 110% may make it easier to turn.

Still it’s a little pretty teapot!

The pattern and instructions are by Manuela of Join the mood.

“Handmade with love” Pink Chalk Studio contest

Pink Chalk fabrics run a holiday tutorial contest: Handmade with love the week leading up to Christmas 2011.

The Pink Chalk Team selected 5 favorites in 3 categories, and… this is the exciting bit… my Patchwork Christmas tree softie tutorial was selected as one of 5 in Category 3: Deck the Halls (Holiday Decorations). My trees didn’t win the competition but I enjoyed participating. Congratulations to the winner!
