In Holiday Hints, Roundup

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend and you are in full-on gift making mode! Today’s edition of Holiday Hints is for the kiddos!

The first idea for you is the Little Artist Apron . This project repurposes your average canvas tote into a durable and functional apron for your budding artist.

Next idea is the kids Flight Cap designed for Stitch Magazine, Spring 2010, made cute and snuggly with my organic cotton sateen lined with organic sherpa.

The little girls on your list would wuv a wee wabbit made using my Cashmere Bunny Tutorial. You could even make a felted wool Mini Tote to help her carry her new friend around.

The next 4 projects are from my book, Warm Fuzzies and are made from recycled felted wool sweaters, naturally! There’s the sweet Girls Jumper with tea cup pocket and finger puppet mousie…

…the handsome Robot Vest embellished with appliqué and real “hardware”, like o-rings and washers…

…a cozy patchwork Poncho Loco with blanket stitch edging and felt deedle-balls details…

…and two of my faves, Smitten the Kitten and Pugsly the Pug hand puppets! These are so easy to personalize and are great scrap-user-uppers.

    Lovely ideas… I know my little BOY would like the lovely rabbit! The flight cap is wonderful.

    These are great ideas, especially the Smitten the Kitten and Pugsly the Pug hand puppets! My kids play with cute animal puppets from SuperSmartyPants all the time and these two would make great additions to their collection!
