I made her a ticker tape quilt using some of my favorite fabric remnants I've collected over the past year.

Daily Crafty Report: a handmade i-pod case for little Miss Stella Vita... It's always fun to make things without a pattern. I think I'm happier in the end cause there's no pattern botching or oops I did it "wrong" :).. A pocket for the i-pod, a pocket for the charger/usb cable, and a key ring... a little love note for the inside... and some other Halloween goodies, all boxed up and ready to go. Missing little Miss Stell, she's always so much fun to dress up for Halloween. (her pesty little brother (Arlin Jack) misses her too...terribly!)
