Is It Already Crafty Tuesday?

I am not showing one coffee cozy this week. Yippeee. Not because I didn't make any. Because I am tired of talking about them and I am sure you are tired of hearing about them. So there. Glad I got that off my chest.

This week I finished up the plush owl ornaments I had half done last week. I also made one of the other ornaments that I have been working on for weeks now. I have them all cut. I just need to find time to finish them. I should have these guys up in the shop by the end of the day.

My latest obsession has been these cardboard dolls. I have been brainstorming and brainstorming of a way to put it all together. I thought they would make great stocking stuffers and want to be able to customize the name on the front. I am not quite there yet but this is what I have so far.

On Saturday afternoon instead of working on all the other stuff I need to finish I decided to make scarves and a headband. I became possessed I swear and there was nothing stopping me.

Doesn't Harper look absolutely thrilled with her new scarf? The scarf is made from a knit material from my stash. I wanted to make something lightweight and comfy. The flowers are made from one of Harper's old shirts and a pair of leggings.

I also made myself a scarf from an old t-shirt. I have a tutorial that I will have up tomorrow. (Hopefully)

Then I made myself a headband out of an old t-shirt. After all you can never have too many headbands, right.

So much great stuff from you today! Those cardboard dolls are SO CUTE. I love them! Of course the owl stuffie ornaments are super adorable. LOL about Harpers face with her new scarf! I have one just like that of Anya in her new knit hat I made, but I haven't posted that loveliness. ;)

Love the cardboard dolls. Too clever. I'm so into stuff made directly from old cereal boxes and such. And the owls, as usual, too cute.

I just had a vision of an entire Christmas tree in white lights with nothing but sweet handmade bird (or owl) ornaments. Sigh. That would be lovely! I love those ornaments.

But the cardboard dolls?? Seriously cute. How fun are those?

Addie just asked me if I'd make her a "scirf" - it took me awhile to figure out that she wanted a scarf, and those lightweight ones would be perfect for her! I'll look for the tutorial. Thanks, Jen! :-)

(btw - never tired of coffee cozys!)
