a little late - valentine's day necklaces for e an y.  simple needle-felted hearts strung on pink ribbons.  i love needle felting - it is amazing what a little ball of fluff can turn into!


ellie's winter coat

a while back, i posted about my grand jacket plans for ellie, as part of the kids' clothes week challenge.  it didn't happen then, but it did happen.  and, it has been a great jacket for the winter.  it is a slight modification from an ottobre pattern using a piece of orange wool that i found in the remnant section. 

i hemmed the sleeves, but trimmed the neck and bottom with red and pink bias tape - which was both easy and nice time saver. it also worked out well with the ribbon i used on the opening.  she also really wanted a tie close - so, that is a cream bias tape closure.

since it is not too cold around here, it has been a great winter coat!  i am really happy with how it turned out and, she likes it too.




i made two new additions to ellie's "gallery wall" in her bedroom today.  maybe she's in an ironic phase?
