Little girlies....

A few presents for little girlies...

A headband..I used the most excellent Starleigh pattern available here..the felt flower was my own creation:

A mini tote bag...the smilie button was the only button I owned that looked remotely right, so I had to console myself with the fact that a 3 yo most likely would actually like a little smilie. I used the famous Jordy pattern. Swirly thing was made up cause I needed something desperately:

Disney Princess pillowcases....I loathe that stuff myself, but whaddya gonna do?? Front was Princess satin, the back a cotton that matched well from the stash. Simple pics, cause, um, who needs to see a whole pillowcase??

Following the crowd....

So I have been seeing these everywhere lately, and when I was trying to come up with appropriate presents for a little artist girl, obviously this totally fit the bill:

I had no idea it would be so hard to find 13 different color fabrics that didn't make me want to gag. Seriously. Dh was very unamused how long it took me to get out of Spotlight.

I promise, it's actually straight and even....I just couldn't get the freaking thing to balance well in the wind.

Luckily, I have plenty of fabric left, cause now dd, my own resident artist, desperately wants one (yes, yes, I know, I should have made her one already, for Christmas, but geez....that meant I would have had to try come up with something for the boy, too, and I was already done for in the male presents department!)

Ninja chef...

So here's the finished product of this:

It was for a guy who is a chef, and loves ninjitsu, and martial arts in general. Like I know what to make for a guy?? SO paranoid I was just going to come off as mega loser-y...cause, you know, I am seriously a dorky person at heart. It's an apron, just basic, and was being a bitch to photograph, so ya just get the cool part, anyway. Apparently he liked it, though, so *whew*. We won't talk about all the cursing that went into it...I HATE binding edges, and it shows. Oy.

Also came with matching potholders.

Made them kingsize, cause it's one of my biggest peeves trying to grab hold of a hot pan without singing my fingers cause the potholder is basically for prettifying your kitchen. Lined with a couple layers of toweling to keep it thick. Hope it works, heh. I was going to quilt around the images for definition, and spent all evening while watching a movie going around one of them by hand, and then ripped it all back out cause it looked terrible.

I am just hoping the idea is cool enough to overlook my very dodgy work. Shocking.

Oh, how I wish.....

I wish I wish I wish I could read French.

Could care less about speaking it, since I have never had a natural affinity for it, but oh, to be able to understand the stories behind the fascinating images on this blog.

It's like peeking in a treasure box, through a small hole. You can see, but can't tell the whole story.

To my Secret Santa family...

My apologies for getting me. I should have just left it to the professionals. I can't believe how wrong something so SIMPLE can go. Arrgh.

Love it..

I love when a favorite band comes out with a new album. It's like a big Christmas present come early. :p The Killers' new album is fast becoming my favorite on my shuffle rotation. Since there aren't any Youtube of the new songs that I love, I'll give ya one of my current faves from Hot Fuss. Since I have no real crafts to post. Cause I am having to keep them all hidden. Hmmph.
