Sock Monkey!

Craft Hope donation hand sewn handmade Misc. Creations! sewing sock monkey

Drum roll please...introducing;  Shipmate Brock Lee get it? Broccoli. One sock monkey ready for some serious lovin'... Brock Lee had various wardrobe possibilities before this debut, but this one just stuck...he's all ready for his trip to California. I think I'm gonna miss him hanging around in my studio. I ended up using different size pieces of wool/felt embroidering his eyes, then I hand stitched them on...thought this was the safest route considering his new owner might be pretty young. If you haven't heard about Craft Hope yet, click here. I'm am grateful I can be a part of this...

Numero dos...

Baby Lux Business custom apron handmade janome sewing machine Misc. Creations! sewing

and Wha-La! the second apron is complete, after a VERY late night last night. I switched up a thing or two on this one. I made the straps larger, started with 3" cuts instead of 2 1/2" which I'm happier with...and I did a little experimenting with "ric-rac" typically I'm not a fan of it, but flipping it under the fabric and stitching together to elude a scallop, I think worked out well. 'nother pen/pencil pocket...and more fun stitching! (my Janome rules!) all pockets are self lined... bright. bright colors...I llllllooooovvveee them! I've passed this sign for a few weeks...
