Pencil Cases and Puppets

Lip pencil that is. This pretty bag is for my niece Erica. It seems she has lip pencils that just don’t fit the standard cosmetic bags I usually make for her. So a couple of days ago I decided to whip up a new longer bag. Already gave it to her and she loves it. It’s super simple but will try to do a tutorial, soon.

On Sunday I got a request from my great niece Alexa for finger puppets. She asked if I could make them while she was at school on Monday and then get them to her in the afternoon. I managed to negotiate a couple of extra days. She drives a hard bargain – did I tell you she is 5 years old?? Anyway she is cute as a button, so can’t say no to her. She is always so excited when I make stuff for her. And I get lots of hugs, so it’s well worth it. So here are the three that I made. I spent more time thinking about them than making them.

If I can squeeze some time in the next few days, I will try and get a little pattern done for the three. I have lots to do, the embroidery club the hoop along to name just a couple of things on the go. Anyway, loving doing all of it.

It’s another beautiful day here in Toronto. Hope the weather keeps up.
