Ladybug ladybug - fly away home :)
Quicky post, as I have to get some finger puppets finished up today, and I haven't even printed out the pattern, oops! I just finished this project off, and I'm so pleased with it that I had to post it right away :)
Ladybug drawstring bag :)
Presenting ... ladybug drawstring bag :D The tutorial is here - I printed out her pattern - I printed it out scaled to fit my paper (8.5" x 11"), proportionately, then increased the size by 50%. My bag finished to 8" tall x 8" wide. The wings are separate from the main body bag, but I tacked them down at the very bottom so they'd sit in place nicely. The black dots are little sequins I stitched onto to the wings :) If I can say so myself without sounding boasty, this is a mighty cute ladybug bag, and officially counts as #25 in my "52 in 16" goal. I'm pretty sure I won't reach my goal in the next 4 weeks, LOL, but at the very least, I should pass the half-way mark?! :D
Drawstring bag and finger puppets :)
These are the finger puppets I finished up that needed a cute storage bag to keep them corralled :D This set of goodies is part of a Christmas gift for a 4 year old girl - her brothers' gifts are almost finished as well, and will be posted when I get them finished :D
All the puppets and the ladybug bag are new projects for me, so I get to post them to Fiona's New to Me for this month ... and since they're Christmas gifts as well, they qualify for Ho Ho Ho for November as well - YAY ME :) ETA: Oh yes! The ladybug bag is going in the Bag It challenge - I almost forgot!
OK! Butt off computer and back to sewing machine in 3 ... 2 ...
