Cashmere Puppy Softie

I upcycled an old cashmere sweater that the moths had gotten to. So incredibly snuggly! Really fun to touch and lots of fun to make. I used felt for the eye patches and the bottom. A vintage blue button I put on the collar. What a sweetie!

Cathedral Notepad

I couldn't bring myself to recover this old book cover, so I cut around the water damage and saved the rest for re-use. The size turned out to be 3X5 amazingly, so I added some pre-cut cards and viola! A unique notepad was born.

Green is great!

My favorite color. I think I will add a Monogram to the front of this for my G-ma's birthday present. Up-cycled book cover recovered in cotton-poly fabric. End pages have a purple flowery design. 120 pages in six signatures carefully hand stitched inside.

Looks like popcorn

I love this pattern! It's so crazy/cool! I think I will add a vintage movie projector patch...although I'm not sure if it would just confuse everybody. :)

Kitty softie

Hand sewn without a pattern (my design)...thus the wonkiness. Made of this crazy, thick, felted wool, then gray felt for the bottom/eyes. A wise looking kitty wearing a scarf! :)

Apple pie journal

Coptic stitched in six signatures. Apple cotton fabric covers a upcycled hard cover. End pages are a cool flowery pattern. A felt patch with a steaming hot apple pie is attached to the front. Would make a cool recipe book. :)
