Sewin', Crochetin' and Gettin' Creative......Oh My!

Here's some of the things I've been making the last month.
I've been really busy trying to put things in my Etsy Shop to make money for Christmas.

 I crocheted this slouchy hat and a cowl neck scarf
out of a wool and acrylic blend yarn. 
I just kinda made up the pattern off of other hats that I've made.

 another slouchy hat of of a mixture of tweed yarns.

 and I crocheted this rug out of recycled bed sheets.
Can you guess which 2 characters are the main part of the rug?

 These snowmen looked really cute when I put them on a piece of jute
 and added some strips of torn fabric onto the jute. 
My picture of that didn't turn out to well though.

 I love this little dress ornament. 
 I've made dresses out of paper and used them as garland before,
 but I saw some larger fabric dresses on Etsy and loved them,
 so here's my version. 
I made several little dresses and accessorized each one a little different.
This dress I crocheted a collar and cuffs onto the dress and then added a crocheted hand muff.

and then I've been really busy making little felt ornaments and pins. 
 I wanted to get my brother a bottle of wine for Christmas so I made a reversible bag with a handle, then attached a piece of jute that I crocheted and added a felt ornament. 

Everyone is getting homemade gifts this year from us
so I better get busy and finish up some of my other projects.

Have a great weekend!
