For the last week my poor mother has been couch-bound, due to a bad knee and bad back. Poor momma! Never one to miss an opportunity to do something creative, she's been churning out all these Easter themed cuties like there's no tomorrow. She told me over the telephone that she'd been busy... I had no idea how many tiny creatures she's created in the last week until I saw this pics yesterday!
She used vintage wool sweaters that she felted; and no pattern. She has always amazed me by her ability to just make anything!! It's always been a dream of hers to make little stuffed animals, and toys for children.... she will be retiring soon from teaching and if I know her - she'll dive right into this idea. Go mom!
Here's a photo of some little pickles she made for me and my best friend (who is a pickle connoisseur!) out of a pair of green fleece gloves....
...and a little cat she made for me when I was tiny- so this cat is over 30 now! Still darn cute. I'm trying to get her to start an Etsy shop - I'll keep you posted on the unfolding cuteness.
