Maura's Morty Scarf

Yep, you guessed it, another Pokemon project.
Well another one of Maura's birthdays snuck up on us.  She's 15!!  She's been asking for a Morty scarf for a month or two and I decided to surprise her with it for her birthday, just like Last year's Totoro shoes.

Here was the photo I had to work from when making the scarf:

Her grama gave her that super cool Mew Two sweatshirt.  It was from Random Choices shop on Etsy.  This hoodie is really good quality and was a steal for the price.  Maura's happy, we're happy.

We had dinner out at the Rainforest Cafe.

...& then we topped off the weekend with a Jigglypuff cake!

Happy birthday Maura, I hope you never change!!

bird ornaments

Happy Holidays, everyone!  I've just finished my Christmas shopping, and starting to think of making a few little handmade goodies to give as gifts.

These bird ornaments are fun and fast and would make a good hostess or teacher gift. 

The larger birds are from a pattern found for free here on Daily Dish, the same pattern found in Sewn Spaces by Joel Dewberry.  It is a pincushion, sachet or ornament.  I have so many scraps around here, I could make these all week. 

The smaller felt birds are similar to the ones found in Fa La La Felt.
We still don't have our tree up, but hope to get it tonight.  We went to Disney World the week of Thanksgiving and since then I've hardly even seen my husband.  He's been working like crazy and been on an extended business trip.  I'm really looking forward to the holidays when everyone will be home for the week!
