Crafts for my Craft Blog....

Okay...So I have been doing a lot of blabbing and not so much craft blogyness but I have been crafting just haven't posted them yet. Is it too soon to start making Christmas stuff??? NO WAY!!! I love Christmas SSSSSSOOOOOOOOO much... 1) because I love making gifts for people 2) my birthday is Dec 1 so its right around the corner 3) I love the smell of Christmas 4) I am greedy and I love opening a bunch of presents Christmas morning and being so excited !!! anyways... I am looking into doing a Christmas Craft show so I have made some things for that. Sort of just trying out some new crafts that have been swirling around in my big head... so here they are... Some sweet Ornaments I made using vintage embroidery pattern of cute little kiddies !!! I made them traditional with a little twist...



I love her sweet little scarf!!



This one reminds me of how parents over dress their kids and they can hardly move... and who doesn't love a little fur around the collar ?



These next little crafts actually are AMAZING... Pincushion that also works as a scissor ornament!!! who would have thought that something so silly and cute actually are very very useful... I made these first just because I was BORED and wanted to whip something up quick and different. And actually was going to use them as Christmas Ornaments. But instead I added it to my sewing scissors because my mom and I have the same ones, they are very light and they don't get in the way at all... and all the pins your heart desires are right there.



Then I added them to my embroidery scissors because I always stick my pin in my clothes or a cushion and then cannot remember where I put the dang thing...



So what do you think? Do you think you would use these? Maybe I might have a give away if people actually like these.

Other then that... Do you think my pictures have improved? I am still not totally satisfied with them... but I think I am getting a little better...

I do not even celebrate christmas and I love it. Great job getting a head start on the crafts. If I wasn't so freakin behind I would too. I love the little pincushions, I am always losing my needles in the tomato one. Can't wait to see more

Kristi said...

Your pics look great! Keep it up. :)

Love the Christmas crafts, they're so cute! And the pincushion/scissor thingies are awesome. I also put my needle in the chair cushion (or sometimes thru the leg of my jeans, kinda dumb, right? lol), and can't always find it...grrrr...

:-D

Brook, you have to go read my post from today and tell me if you're up for the challenge!

kittykill said...

I would totally use those. They are really cool! I love the ornaments too.

Patty said...

The ornaments are so cute! I've only done cross stitch ones before but I should try some embroidery ones next. Did you use a pattern for your pincushions or come up with your own thing?

rubyredruca said...

Those are so cute! And who doesn't LOVE Christmas? We're all a little greedy!

Crab Apple Designs said...

I love your little strawberry pincushion scissor ornaments. I would definitely make good use of that!! And they're just plain cute anyways for hanging on anything available.

Thanks so much for stopping by our blog and saying g'day! I love your ornaments, especially that first one which is sooooo cute!

Brook said...

No I didn't use a pattern I sort of saw something similar and winged it!

Thank you for the comments on our blog. Your crafts are adorable, wish I had the patience to make stuff like that. I make pillows once in a while but that isn't that hard...just sew up 4 sides and done! lol

Kristi said...

Hey there,

I adore your blog! And because you inspire me, I am passing an award along to you! Find about it here on my blog.

Hugs, Kristi

SO I was blog lurking... and found another strawbeery pincushion pattern.... I totally love it a million times more then mine!!! DAMN!

jennyflower said...

Hey there! Your sissor dangles are a VERY good idea, for the non craft x-mas market I would scatter them with festive essentail oils and use some sparkley ribbon. If you want to add your award just mousey ver the pic and right click you should come up with a bar with the option to save. Then just import that image on your post. I hope that makes sense. You should definetly add it-your soooo a Wyld woman!

Sooo, I know you do craft shows, and I know you make Xmas goodies, so naturally I thought of you when I saw the call for crafters for the "Holiday House" in Half Moon Bay. I thought you might be interested!
