Here I sit at our town's public library uploading my photos, because, that's right, my server is still not working. Anyway, I promised photos and here they are. These are some items left from my shows that I have for sale. If you see anything you like please contact me. My e-mail address is at left, or leave me a comment.
On top we have my famous Face Mittens. These have been very popular at all of my shows. They are made from felted wool, rescued from the landfill thanks to Salvation Army and Goodwill. They are lined in a cotton t-shirt fabric and are VERY warm. Very sweet.
Next are a couple Mitten Purses. These are made from pieces of sweaters and have "pearl" straps. Perfect for a little girl, or a big girl to carry a little cash and keys. A cell phone pocket graces the back side. Very handy, no pun intended.
Then we have puppets. These are also made from, you guessed it, sweater pieces. These are smaller for a child's hand of maybe 7 years. They have buttons or beads so are not intended for young chewing, teething children to play with. There's a scary bear, a cat and a bunny. Please let me know if you want these and/or need more of them. I can make these special order.
Lastly, are my snowman dolls. They are about 10" tall when sitting. Their heads are wool and their bodies are sweater fabric.
Yes, I'm having a LOT of fun with the sweaters. I wake up in the night with visions of new stuff, new ideas for the stuff. Too much fun. I will hopefully post a photo of a couple of blankets made from pieces of sweaters.
I sent two boxes off to Earth Angels Toys today, www.earthangelstoys.com so please check the site often for my new items. You will also be able to find some of my dolls at Climate in Chicago in the coming month. I hope to do business with them for a while.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog, my booth spaces and, PLEASE, let me know if I can make your holiday shopping and gift giving more unique this year.
