Teacher gifts...


This sweet little wren is from a collection of 12!
I could paint wrens all day~
They're so very chipper and have a colorful song!


Fabric transfer from one of my original watercolors...
on a very old piece of sage colored linen~
Fun cotton fabric...
Wool felt...
Plain muslin...


Before I started my super skilled stitch work
my tool of choice was the hot glue gun!
(giggle)
One dress-up day I took a mint green bridesmaid gown...
Cut it into several pieces (with an evil laugh and joy!)
Then hot glued it to Alaina!
Well... she had a footie-pajama on~
I didn't want it to be toooo permanent! ha! ha!


Back to our project...
Wool felt is so much fun! I love to make little outfits for
my needle felted friends. I felt them together~ or a few stitches.
It is a nice way to add a bit of strength to these patches.


I hand sign each treasure~
Stitch a pin back, so they can be easily removed.


I stitched one of these to a blue jean tote bag...
It looked so sweet!
These make wonderful teacher gifts~
A friend stitched one to her laptop case!
Another gal shared that she stitched it to a blazer pocket!

Hope  you have a wonderful evening~
Thank you for so many fun comments, Friends!

Yikes! I think we should all mind our P's and Q's around you when the glue gun is plugged in! LOL! Either way, we love your creativity!

Blessings and Smiles, Friend!
