Santa Cup Cozy

These Cup Cozies are a great gift. No cup should be without one.  It not only helps keep you from burning your hands but it keeps your coffee hot a little bit longer.  These are a fun stocking stuffer gift. Give that special teacher a useful gift that they can use over and over again.

The body is knitted an the edges are crocheted.  Just slip your cup into it and it’s ready to go.

Machine wash and lay flat to dry.

Beaded Scarf

Beaded Scarf This week I finished the beaded scarf I have been working on for a couple of months.  It did not take that long to make it.  I only picked it up now and then to work on it.  Though as it got closer to the end of making the base of the scarf, I did bead on it longer than I usually did.

This is made with a mix of #15 and #11 seed beads. Glass pearls and rondelles.  I did enjoy making this.  I plan on putting it in my web store to sell and after it sells I will probably start another one!

You will need about 50 grams of 11/0 seed beads and about 50 grams of 15/0 seed beads.

Once purchased you should get an email telling you how to download the pattern.  Thank you.

A pattern is now available in my secure web store. (6-17-16)  PDF files are non-refundable.

Herbert the Hedgehog Beaded Critter

herbert450x450Herbert the Hedgehog is my latest beaded creation.  He has gotten a lot of attention at my bead classes and I’m very excited to be teaching him!

I put a pin back on the belly so I can wear him on my lapel or jacket!  I honestly don’t know how the idea came to me but when it did I had a lot of fun with it.  It did take me three tries to get the head right.  The first one was way to long and he looked like an anteater!  So I shortened it up a bit and it was still too long.  Third time was a charm.  I got the face/head length just right and I attached it to the body.  I was SO excited when I got it finished.  I just liked how he turned out!

I will also be adding more beading patterns to my secure web store in the upcoming weeks.  PDF files are non-refundable.
