Letter to Santa

I saw a really cute idea for a letter to Santa, but didn't want to spend a ton on a I made my own version using a kit called Christmas Whimsy.  Just click & print.  The boys both loved writing their lists & it is great for a little one who is still learning their letters {my 4 year old}.  I just printed mine out on my color printer.  Enjoy.

My latest project...

I am almost finished with my first real quilting project.  I have two to do for the boys for Christmas.  I am really excited.  I will post more when the first quilt finished & post where I got the pattern.

New Ugly Friends

My boys always get a new "friend" for Christmas.  They really don't need any new friends.  They have a ton already!  Now that I have taken up sewing, I wanted to try to make them a new fun friend.  Have you seen Ugly Dolls?  I don't know why, but I love them!  They are pretty I decided to try to attempt making them.  I think that they are made with a wool or felt, but I wanted something softer.  I went with flannel.  I actually took the boys to the store & let them pick out their flannel color.  For everything else I just used felt that I had left over from other projects.  I just sketched out what I wanted & got busy.  I love how they turned out & can't wait until the boys open these on Christmas.  {I only spent $5.00 for the felt & then everything else I already had.  I even stuffed them with the fluff from an old pillow.}

My favorite thing is the heart that I added on the back.  That was my own sweet touch for my boys.
