Peppermint

Okay, so I didn't exactly make the flock of robins I envisioned, but I did make a prototype, and I think it came out pretty well! I'm not used to that much hand sewing, but the stuffed cat gave me confidence to try, and I think I could get used to it. It's just so hard to slow down and work on something like that when the holiday is so rapidly approaching!

I made the stuffed candy canes using a $2 thrifted sweater. Let me assure you, they look easy, but they are tricky little buggers. So far I've gotten three ornaments out of one sleeve, so I have a lot left to work with. Any suggestions for other shapes, projects, etc? I just love the cheerful stripes, so I'm being a little hoard-y with it and want to find just the right project.

Wow! How about little striped elf hats with green trim? And matching stockings!
