Let's get this blog rolling with a project I just completed! The cute little monster above is Zipper-Face. I made him from a piece of beautiful purple velvet that I didn't even know I had until I went digging through a box of fabric! He is about 11" tall and is stuffed with fiberfill. Open his mouth, and you find his equally-cute little friend, Herb (below). Herb is made of wool felt, is about 3" long, and has a pin on the back for wearing. These two are part of a package I just put together for a swap on Craftster.
If you haven't been to Craftster before, what are you waiting for? Go to http://www.craftster.org/ to experience every kind of crafty fun--and I do mean everything. You can see what other people have made, and post pictures of your own projects. If you sign up as a member, you will have your choice of dozens of fun swaps to participate in. I can't believe I didn't know about it until 3 months ago. But thanks to my friend Susan who told me about it, I'm there every day now; I can't get enough! If you like crafts, you will love it too. (Hi Susan!)
