Dumbo

Hi Folks,

today I want to show you another plush toy I made as a present for the birthday of the lovely wife of a colleague. Like always, when I was asked to create something nice as a special present I searched the internet and finally was inspired by this pattern over at Ravelry.

This my version of little Dumbo.
Note: I didn't use the pattern on Ravelry. I made my own.
It turned out really cute. Hope she'll like it like I do.

'til next time

Peek-a-boo autumn leaf jar candle

Hello there,

"Bunt sind schon die Wälder, gelb die Stoppelfelder, und der Herbst beginnt. Rote Blätter fallen, graue Nebel wallen, kühler weht der Wind!" [German folk song]

This means all the forrests are colored now. The days are getting shorter and the nights colder.The time to stay cozy, starts. I like to light some candles in the evening. Maybe with some " autumn " smell?!? Some time ago I saw very nice autumn-themed-candles in jars over at Pinterest and I thought to myself that they, slightly modified, were perfect and easy to make.

So I took 4 baby food jars that I had in stock,
cut out some autumn leafs from self-adhesive vinyl with my silhouette and glued them onto the jars. (Please make sure that the jars are free from dust and grease.) Then I painted the whole jars with crafters paint and allowed them to dry for about 2-3 hours. After making sure the paint is all dry I removed the silhouette leaf. Then I filled a bit of color matching legumes and a tealight into the jar.

Here's my version of the jar-candles.
It looks that nice with the different colors shining through the stained jars.

In the backround you'll maybe peek some buddies like Turkey, Scarecrow and Sam Hain from last year.

Stay cozy 'til next time

Baby snake hat

Hi Folks,

a few weeks ago a colleague asked me about a newborn hat for snake owners who had recently become parents of a little girl. My colleague wanted to have a funny present so he asked if I could attach a snake on top of this hat. Because I liked the idea, I did not hesitate and went to work.

I worked without a pattern and this is what I came up with. 

The surprise was awesome.

'til next time

Superhero quilt

Hi Y'all!

A few weeks ago I told you about the Minnie-Quilt I made as a present for my little niece. Of course I can not only make a quilt for my niece, but also must make one for my nephew/godson. And so did I. Here's my absolutely marvelous superhero quilt.
I was a bit afraid if both wouldn't like their blankets, but the opposite occurred. They both liked them and wanted to take them to bed at night. Yeah, great success!!

Hope to see you soon
