Ravenwood Whimzies Ornie Swap!

Hey everyone! Yes I know it has been a while and I apologize. It is currently Birthday Season (followed closely by Christmas Season) around here so I've been doing projects like crazy! And.. as always, trying to clean my house :-P but that tends to be an ongoing thing too.

Recently at Ravenwood Whimzies, my future Mother-in-Law had an ornie swap! I joined in, and though I could have done something in clay much easier, I decided to try my hand at sewing again. It has been years since I did a plushie project like this--and I had no pattern to go off of so it was interesting--and fun! (but also time consuming haha) Here is the results! Enjoy!
(also I have been requested to perhaps do a pattern for this thing.. I am interested in hearing what you all think! If I do I will have to make another one of these little guys again to re-figure it out haha)

I used upholstry fabric scraps for the hat and scarf and star!

Here is a back view and bottom view. He was completely hand-sewn!

Here's a side-view of the little guy.

The ornie with a little card I sent along with it to Tammy! :)

Life is Busy!

Hey everyone! I know I have been absent for a while--I'm going to over the next few weeks starting to slowly work on this more in earnest! :) Lots has been going on lately. It's birthday season around here so I am needing to work on pictures to give away as gifts! Plus I have work and have been running around doing lots of things--such as hearing the Preacher to the Papal Household, Fr. Contalamessa speak! Great stuff and God is good!

I have some good news--today I have finally completed my part for the ornie swap! I shall post pictures soon but I'm currently typing this from the library. It was made freehand with no pattern and I haven't done a project like this in I would say, a few years. But I think it's decently successful! I'll leave you in suspense for what it is until I can get up photos--hopefully later tonight :)

If anyone has tips for starting out here let me know! Blessings!
