Googily

I had someone contact me about making a Googily doll, from the book Jumpy Jack and Googily, by Meg Rosoff. It's her grandson's favorite book and she wanted to give him a Googily doll for Christmas.



I made him out of wool felt, like my other monster softies, but chose to make him a rag doll, with floppy arms and legs.

Pea pod ornament

Eat your vegetables!

Vera's first Christmas ornament! Three peas in a pod. The peas are needle felted wool and the outside of the pod is made of wool blend felt, which I lined with a cotton print. I'm not sure if I will make this a yearly tradition, but I wanted to at least make an ornament for her first Christmas. It would be neat for her to have a dozen or so handmade ornaments to start her own Christmas tree one day.
