I couldn't resist these tiny ice skates.
I have my first one finished, waiting for it's pair.
Such a quick project, these would be cute as class Christmas gifts. You could put little initials on the skates, oh the cuteness!
I need to make these stockings to go with the ice skates!
This needle case is adorable.
At first I thought it was partially sewn by machine and partially sewn by hand, but it is all sewn by hand using a blanket stitch. The little stem holds small scissors and the mushroom top has a couple of extra sheets of felt to hold needles. I had to try out contrasting thread.
I love ribbon embroidery. Look how pretty the S initial turned out. So lovely! And you are given instructions on how to make it in the book.
