This was a team effort :)

QAYG stocking made with scraps of Laurie Wisbrun's Brrr! line of fabrics :)
I finished this stocking today, to go with the matching quilt I finished a while ago.  The quilt has already been delivered, so this stocking will get mailed when the polar bear book I ordered from bookdepository, arrives.  My friend Nancy did the beautiful embroidery for me - she did a fabulous job, and even added sparkly snowflakes for bling - PERFECTION!  It measures 14.5" tall x 9" wide at the toe, and was done in the "magic stocking" technique :)  The cuff is made with linen that Nancy had in stash - a perfect match :)  I even added a tiny little polar bear button to the cuff, to continue the pb theme :)

[X] Stocking for LL to match his quilt is now checked off of the Christmas To Do list :D

I think this is going to work out just FINE :D

I wanted to do a little polar bear "extra" to go with each of the Brrr! polar bear quilts I've made in the last few months.  They're all for kids, so I wanted something fun :)  This tutorial caught my eye and I tried it out this morning, using some nice large washcloths I had purchased @ Costco a while ago (I actually bought them to craft with, lol).

Here he is after I cut out the bits and pieces and stitched the ears.  At this point, I started to think that yes, he might just work out!

Well HELLO there - it's nice to meet you, sewy human!  I'm Nanuk the Polar Bear!

What'cha doin', human?  :)

I'm very cute, aren't I!  That wasn't a question - it's easy to see that I'm adorable :)
 Thank you to Abby @ thingsforboys for the cute tutorial - I'm going to make a few more of these little sweeties :D

More Christmas sewing :)

Gingerbread aprons - size 3-5 - tutorial here :)
Close-up of the gingerbread buttons I added to either side of the neck straps :)
To go along with the aprons - Miss Gingie (I need to make a second one to go with the second apron).  The pattern is from Precious Patterns on Etsy - it's a very easy pattern, but I did simplify it a bit - this is the smaller size - it measures about 9.5"w x 11" :)

Halloween = finished for another year :)

Here are the last of the Halloween finger puppets I made, and some Batgirl masks - I want to check with the moms of the girls that I gave the masks to, to check on the fit. They looked cute though, and were really easy to make! Note to self: add a layer of sew-in interfacing next time, just to give them a bit more body :)
