I made these lovely felt flowers, following this awesome tutorial from Jess at Craftiness is Not Optional. The only thing I made differently was adding a little tulle to the back, since it matched my girls’ Christmas dresses. Thanks, Jess, the tutorial was fabulous!

Mermaidens

Inspired by this post from one of my favorite blogs, Homemade by Jill, I gave doll-making a try.

My daughters are obsessed with Mermaids and this adorable Mermaiden from Wee Wonderfuls was a joy to make. It was fun and easy from start to finish, and I even learned a new stitch: ladder stitch.

I loved making toys! And I am also curious about something: when you make something for one of your children, do you feel like you have to make the other one something too? I could not make just one of these mermaids, but the same happens if I make a dress, or a skirt, or a game… I always double-craft! And feel bad when I don’t. I wonder if this happens to anyone else?
