How much is that doggie . . .

So I was LAY-Z this weekend. I managed to do some laundry but most of my cleaning is still waiting to happen. Bah. Cleaning. I did, however, move the sewing machine back up to the craft room of doom so I could actually use the dining room table. But before I did I snuck in two quick projects.



Another Tone Finnanger stuffy from Sew Pretty Home Style. He was much harder to put together than the bunnies and I am doubtful to make another. For one thing, he won't sit up on his own. I am tempted to rip him open and stuff his butt with beans but we all know I'm much too lazy for that. His collar and leash look much cuter than the picture lets on and I need to work on his nose a bit and fix the threads. He also needs some button eyes and perhaps a little wool felt heart patch. Something to snazz him up a bit.

I also managed this bag:



Made from another pillowcase scrap from Vallen and a tiny bunny I had intended to stuff but looked much better as an applique. The Favorite Things twill tape ribbon was a Valentine gift from my sister Mandi and I heard her whispering over at her blog that she may do a giveaway and if memory serves she was thinking of parting with more of the fabulous scrabooking ribbon she scored at a store closing sale. Let's encourage her to do that, shall we? :)

So anyway, what's in the bag?



One Crafty Carnival bunny and my Le Lux eye pillow are hippity hopping their way to spread some Easter joy. It felt good to FINALLY finish a project and get it out the door. I have been feeling so behind forever now. I'm hoping to remedy that soon. :)

cheers

We did a ton o'stuff this weekend. Put together an Ikea storage bed in 1:24. Yes, I timed it and that included putting in one of those turny things wrong and having to find a magnet strong enough to fish it out! We also did work on the shed and started cleaning up the yard. And it's almost Easter...

I love the way that fabric looks all made up - it's your touch, I'm sure.

Rebecca, you're making me want to shirk ALL my responsibilities & go make stuff from MY T.F. books! I LOVE your doggy, & the bag is perfect! I think I'm going to use a lil' template to make an applique for my goddaughter's pillowcases! Hmmmm ... See? You've inspired me!
