Special orders and Shopping

Here is what has been going on in my studio as the year draws to an end...
 This was a special request for Michelle. She sent me the pattern and wanted the doll dressed in reds and asked if I could make a puppy for her. Here is how she turned out.

I made these terry cloth "Remember Me" bears and dressed them with shirts made from a special Grandpa's shirts. They are going to join some made earlier this fall.
A friend requested a Santa Kitty made from warm and natural. I wasn't sure how he would look but he did turn out cute!
Friday I decided it was a good idea to make the 200 mile journey to the fabric stores see what I could find. I have been taking advantage of some of the online sales to rebuild my fabric stash, but some times it is fun to go to the stores! I hit JoAnn's coupon sale, found some bargains at Hancock Fabrics and rounded it out with a trip into Hobby Lobby.  A perfect day in my book! LOL!
Found lots of fleece, muslin, terry cloth and flannel. I have plush felt coming in the mail...I should be all ready to start creating for next year!

Now I need to clean and reorganize my rooms (that will be no easy task), fit in my new purchases and start crafting...after Christmas, of course!

Best Wishes for a glorious Christmas and the Happiest of New Years to my wonderful family, friends and followers!
