I just put these up on my Etsy site. They would be perfect to play with as little pocket pals, or to put as a gift in an advent calendar, or even as a gift tag.

'Run, run as fast as you can! You can't catch me, I'm the gingerbread man!'

Super duper cute felt gingerbread men magnets. A strong magnet is safely secured inside each "cookie" so he can cling on the fridge and hold papers up as well (and secure enough that they won't up and run away!). Rick-rack embelishments are hand stitched on and details are embroidered. Edges are finished with a blanket stitch. Each one is slightly different. Because the magnet is attached inside, these can be played with or used elsewhere as a decoration. Approx 3.5" tall.

Here is the little sock monkey I am making. The first two pictures show it in progress. Actually, it's not a "sock" monkey at all, because it's not made with a sock, but with a striped cotton sweater. By the way, upcycled is a urban fancy term that I rather like. It's the process of converting a material or object into something of similar or greater value, thereby giving it a second life. (10/08). This little cutie is only about 6" high.

Reversible child-sized apron
I love brown and pink together, and this little apron came out so cute. It's reversible too. I gave it to a wee friend on her 2nd birthday. I modified the neck piece so it attaches with velcro (to accomodate a head of curly hair), as it doesn't need to go over her head. 10/08

Felt Gingerbread Man Magnets

I just finished these little cuties. I've just made a bunch more that are smaller (3") but in a lighter color. They are so fun. I made them running as opposed to just standing around (run run away!). These will get listed in my Etsy shop this weekend.
