Winter Handmades

 Well I can't believe it two post in one week, usually it is a month between them.  I wanted to share some of the winter items that I made this year, my sister has been helping me this time to get  all this done for the shops open house earlier this month.  With sewing for four shops, it keeps you hopping.  I love this little guy, thought he turned out really great.
 My sister, Lisa made this santa heads, they turned out to be adorable, she really loves to sew, does really great work, lots of details to her handmades.
 The waving santa she also made, really cute, love the painted on eyes.  This picture was taken in her house.
 Mr. and Mrs. Snowman was crafted by my sister and the little plum pudding she also made, turned out really nice, love the snowwoman with her muff, Lisa likes details.
 Lisa also made the santa with the deer, she had to make several of these guys, they went fast, love the deer.
 This just turned out to be so adorable, love all the little items used in this display, Lisa does a really good job on making animals. We are always on the lookout for little baskets for our projects.
 I love snowmen, so this is one of mine, just a basic pattern I added on a different sock hat and put a few prim candy canes in his hands.
 I really enjoyed making this one, very simple, love the pocket on it and the painted eyes, very prim, adorable.  Can be displayed just about anywhere.
 Really enjoyed making the crows, love the grungy part of fixing these guys, just simple with a few berries and ribbon.
 Love the santa crow, just different, perfect to hang on a cabinet or use with a wreath on a door.
 The makedo santa's were one of my favorite ones to make this year.  I took an old quilt and made it more primitive looking and just added a few items to it, love how it turned out., had to make more of these guys.

 The hanging cupboard santa was a simple project to make, love how he turned out, would be nice on a door or cupboard.
 Another snowman, love making the little broom, added a lot of stocking caps this time to my snowmen.
 The snowman with the red pants, he was just adorable, very easy, just plain and simple, love the stick legs.
 Another one of my sisters santa's, love this one to hang on a cupboard, we use a lot of wool from items we find at the thrift stores, the wool at the fabric store is just too expensive.
 The candle light santa Lisa made, love the white coat with the red trim and the little pocket holding the light.
 This one was just adorable, Lisa  done a fantastic job on this one, love the little floweres she added.
 This is another makedo santa, we had done several of this pattern.  Lisa had done this one, love the little teddy bear.  We love looking for little items we can use in our handmades, they add so much to them.
 Another one of Lisa's santa's with the deer, I just love the deer, she does so well in painting her items.
 This small old world santa was everyones favorite, he was so simple to make and small enough to hang just about anywhere.
 I enjoyed making the old world santa's, these are tfc folkart patterns, very simple, but adorable, most time consuming part was hand sewing the trim on.
 Another tfc folkart santa, love the round head, just plain and simple, would make a nice display anywhere.
The stump santa was a lot of fun to make, can sit him anywhere, again I used an old quilt square and made it more primitive and added items in it, I had made another one and added a bear to it.  Well these were a few of the items that were made this time, so many things we wanted to make just ran out of time.  Lisa is currently making a really cute black snowman for someone, will have to share some pictures of a few other items later.  Right now we are starting our rabbit season, trying to decide what to make for the spring season, we have been out shopping trying to find little items for the details on the rabbits and other spring items we will make.  Been having a lot of fun making them, I usually end up with several things that just didn't get finished in time, oh well I will be ahead for next christmas, so many things to make, so little time.  It has been raining here for the last three days, so as soon as the sun comes back out, I will take some pictures of my house I have been decorating for the winter months.  Take care,  Hugs Vicky
