Party Fun A Coiled Fabric Bowl

This years quilting trend is all about low volume fabric. This bowl is a representation of that style incorporating many different low contrast white cotton fabrics. It measure 7" across and is 3 3/8" deep. These little bowls are great as a candy dish or a catch all for keys, jewelry and trinkets. You can take it one step further and fill it full of raffia, sample size lotions, perfumes and lipsticks, wrap it in cellophane and finish off with a satin ribbon. Give it as a fabulous gift, or keep it for yourself.

Miniature Dollhouse Baby Boy Blanket

This is a handcrafted 1:12 miniature dollhouse quilt using traditional blocks which measure approximately 1 ¼ inches. Each of the tiny pieces that make up this design were carefully cut and meticulously pieced together by machine. Thin cotton fabric was used in place of thicker cotton batting to provide less bulk in this miniature crib-size quilt. I used blue gingham and blue pin dot fabrics for the front and white cotton batiste fabric for the back of the quilt. The intricate quilting was stitched by hand and the blue gingham border/binding is hand stitched.

Schnauzer Amigurumi

This sweet little stuffed dog is a Miniature or Standard Schnauzer! I love how his head is long and the little furry, fluffy part at the end of his snout looks for all the world like a beard! To get this right, I used a special furry type of yarn that I brushed out to make the beard. I then groomed and trimmed it to be the perfect length for a schnauzer dog. So cute!

The schnauzer is made from tough poly-acrylic yarn, stuffed with all-new polyfil, and has little black safety eyes, and a shiny black safety nose as well. His mouth is embroidered in black yarn.
