One of the things we did while Mad was here was to make cute stuff for her new house. She's moving in a couple days to a fun new house with some friends and was psyched to get her craft on. I made her this felt coaster set over a couple days of non-stop movie and stupid tv-watching. We did lots of other little crafts as well.
Aren't they adorable?! The tree stump idea was found here and the lime slice idea is from here. The other four designs I came up with myself. Not sure how accurate my planet is, considering I have the tip of Australia directly south of Alaska... but whatever.
They're all hand-stitched. I'm coming to realize I find hand-stitching and embroidering extremely relaxing and satisfying. It gives you an excuse to watch something mindless for hours on end and still be "productive". I think this pizza or the little globe might be my favorites.
Is it obvious that this is a sushi roll?? It's supposed to be an avocado slice, smoked salmon, and the sweet egg thing. Like in a California Roll [i believe]. I think a whole set of different sushi types might be cute for the sushi enthusiasts out there.. what other shapes and objects could be done?
