Oh yes, I put needle to thread and made something. A real thing. A useful thing. My most ambitious sewing to date has been pirate gnomes, which really our 11-year-old neighbor can do just as well. But I was inspired (like so many others) by Soulemama's recent book A Handmade Home, and picked what I thought was the easiest project for a crafting/ sewing neophyte. Behold, the felted sweater hat.
My dear husband laughed when he saw it. Not because he was trying to tease, but because he couldn't believe I made something, anyTHING. Most of my creating is in the writing/ video/ photography realm, so making something tangible was a big step.
Luckily I have people like the fabulous MamaRoots to turn to for handmade goodness. And Zach and I were both over the moon to win her Monster Monday giveaway! Be sure to drop in and leave a comment for the current monster giveaway, these are such fabulous little treasures.
p.s. Yes, the prints yesterday were raccoons. I can't wait to catch some Great Blue Heron tracks in plaster, they are huge! Happy tracking!
