Christmas Crafting Craziness
I have spent the last 2 days crafting like crazy, and I still have 2 projects to finish! I can hardly believe that Christmas is already a week from tomorrow. And, in usual Sarah fashion, I had to go to the flea market this morning, because it is warm, and who knows when it will be warm enough to go again! I found a real treasure too, and I will share it as soon as I get it cleaned up a bit.
A wool felt lion cube ribbon toy for my newest niece, Maggie. I have 250 yards of that vintage trim, and this is a great use for it. This turned out way better than I expected.
I made more magnetic paper dolls, this time Strawberry Shortcake for my niece. They are stuck on a cookie sheet, so she can play with them in the car, and I made a Strawberry Shortcake drawstring bag to store them in. In case you aren't completely convinced that you need to make magnetic paper dolls yet, look at these! I am SO making those for the Jack, I mean, the space suit, the Santa outfit, I cannot resist.
EDIT: Because a lot of folks are asking, I printed the paper dolls on this magnetic paper. You can buy it any type of "mart store" like Target or Walmart. I use the photo setting on my printer to get the best picture, but, if you use that site I linked to, be sure to print a TEST page first! Her high res scans will print huge and waste expensive paper if you aren't careful. The paper is easy to cut with your paper scissors. (Does everyone have paper and fabric and hair and tape scissors? LOL)
And one of my favorite Christmas decorations. I picked this up in an antique mall when we were moving from Florida back to Missouri, paid quite a bit of money for it, and have been searching for more of them ever since. Sadly, I haven't seen any, not even any that I say "way too much money!" too. It is on my 'always look for' list, and maybe some day I am going to get lucky!
P.S. I am going to go back a few entries and answer some of your questions in the comments sections, in case you don't look back there to see the answers.
