photoI didn’t have a chance to take photos of a gift I made for a friend recently, but she was kind enough to take a picture herself (and also include the little recipient enjoying it!).  For this one I went with a slightly more neutral color palette, and used the same color yarn for the fur and his sweater stripe, then used gray and blue for the pants and other sweater stripe.  I also wanted to dress him up a bit, so added some little suspenders, which turned out super cute!  I thought about adding a bow-tie but never got around to it – I think I’ll have to try that for the next one 🙂  I also made a little rattle and felted on a little moon for fun – it was my first time felting and I really like the different texture it gives to the toys.  How cute is his little face looking at the kitty??  Adorable.

Every time we use the last egg, I can’t bring myself to throw away the carton – they are just so useful!  There are about a gazillion things you can do/make with them, so I always chuck them into my bin of “random packaging I might use for a craft”, which is embarrassingly large (old tuna can, anyone?).  This past Sunday, though, I’d seen something on Pinterest (of course) that had given me an idea and I just happened to use the last egg that morning, so egg-crate-monsters it was!

Just cut them out in pairs, and decorate however you want to look like eyes – we did ours quickly with just marker, but you could totally glue googly eyes on these.  Then we stuck in pipe cleaners to add crazy “lashes” and attached them to our fingers.  Quick and oh-so-easy crafty fun.
