Tiny Things Thursday: little hats

These were a quick little project. Crafts stores are full of small cheap little hats suitable for dolls, silly toddlers or lazy house cats. It also a great way to use those little scraps of fabric and ribbon to short for anything else:

Tiny Things Thursday: Jemima Puddleduck

Welcome to the second installment of tiny things thursday!

I've not managed to do anything super complex with crochet yet. However I can make little amigrummi dolls. For Bekahs first Easter I made a little Peter Rabbit. This year I made Jemima Puddleduck. Eventually I hope to do all the Beatrix Potter characters. A Squirrel Nutkin would be adorable.

Tiny Things Thursday: Pointy kitty

So, I realize it is now after midnight so its technically Friday. Anyway I'm going to try and do a few new things with this blog. Mostly I need to do something to make myself interested in updating since I sort of suck at blogging.

So I give you Tiny Things Thursday. Every week I will try to post one of the small projects I have made: amigrummi , clothing alterations, or small toys for Bekah, etc.

This week: pointy kitty.
I made this for Bekah a while back and she finally started playing with it. It's made out of a bandanna I found that had a cat print. A cat sewn together from lesser cats!!!

If you'd like to make your own pointy kitty, this is where I got the free pattern:

Please to enjoy:)

Finally! The GENCON post

BEST CON EVER!!! Thursday: steam punk day My husband and I posing with a strawberry monster...who apparently hates smoking

We bought HA! HA! Mustache!

Friday: True Dungeon and beer at the Ram.

Saturday: Costume contest day - Wynne from Dragon Age Origins.
Me with female Hawke from Dragon Age 2

I love entering the contest because for one you get a reserve seat for the show so you get to see all of the costumes. You also have time backstage to talk with the other costumers and compare notes. The costumes are so amazing, but everyone is still cool and laid back about it. I recommend entering no matter your skill level. Here were some of my personal favorites.

Grand Champion Tauren

Soul Caliber Group Costume

Awesome Dragon Lich: That mouth actually moves!

Little Batman complete with Batmobile

The most adorable Steam punk Family

More pictures of the Wynne costume

My staff is made from a wood, paper mache, foam, and wire.

Someone awesome posted the contest on YouTube

Sunday: I made a giant hammer! Why? Every fairy needs a giant hammer.

Monday: recovery day just laying out in the yard enjoying the gorgeous weather

Bekah loves strolling her Hobgoblin. Isn't he adorable? We got him for her from this vendor: Goblin Road
When you take one home you get a certificate of Goblin Adoption! How cute is that?!
