Mooshie Bunny

I got this cute little pattern here for free and made one bunny for a birthday gift and the other went to my daughter who was hovering the whole time I was sewing! On the second bunny I decided to spruce up the belly a bit because the fabric I had used, while nice and fuzzy, seemed too plain. So I cut a hole in the belly of the bunny and put the striped fabric behind the hole and stitched it up.

Mouse in a Tin (Recycled)

I saw on pinterest that there was a pattern for sale to make a mouse in an altoids tin. The pattern looked really cute, but I can usually eyeball something and not need a pattern. So here is my version of a Mouse in a Tin.

Start with you altoids tin.

Cut felt to fit inside the top and bottom of the tin and glue it in place.

Make a cute mouse out of felt and fabric scraps.

Make a top blanket and glue it to the bottom of the tin so it won't fall out. Then make a small pillow out of a fabric scrap.

Sleepy mousy.

My Pallet Garden is GROWING!!

Lettuce & Broccoli. Sadly the Oklahoma winds tore one whole bunch of lettuce right out of the box.

Tomatoes & Cauliflower both grown from seeds. :)
