I was really on a roll this week! I had a person at my last craft show say that she would love to see a sock monkey pillow, so I had to make one, since it was stuck in my head. I made a few dryer balls too, though some of these still need the last seam stitched up. I cleaned up my sewing table, and ran across one of my camper appliques, so I had to make another camper pillow (that's turquoise cashmere!).
I used the "sock monkey wool" on the back of the pillow, and I like the way that came out... the contrast.
I thought a sock monkey skirt would be cute too!
To work out my skirt sizing, I needed a tester/model for my "child" size skirt, so I made one for my friend's daughter (pics of her wearing it soon!). My friend was trying to work out how to make a poncho that day, so I abandoned my housecleaning (yay, an excuse!), and got to work on poncho-ing. I came up with this outfit for her.
Here's a close up of the owl, and the neck. I put the flowers on the neck to tie the 2 pieces together better, but also to cover up a moth hole on the neck. I made a matching hair clip too, since I was on a roll.
So... what have you been working on? Please feel free to post pictures of your latest recycled wool projects on my Facebook page!
