Clothes Horse Number Four

Here is one of my favorite wintery outfits to wear lately! This outfit is a honey-colored sweater that I think I got at Anthropologie a while ago. I love it cos it is so warm and wooly! And I love the ruffle and the color, too. I paired it with some cute copper brown knickers, angora knee high socks, and my white Familevog shoes!

Illustration Friday - Sneaky

I made this illustration for the Illustration Friday I missed when the word was "sneaky." I thought this was a good word to draw, but I missed the date to enter my link! That's okay. I am back on track now, and was so busy for the last few weeks. I hope you enjoy this drawing of me and Nilla being very sneaky! I imagine this to be us sneaking around peeking at our Christmas pressies that await!

Little Ornament

My ornament from the Small Object.
Here is a little ornament I got at ICE earlier this month. It is made by our friend Sarah. You can see more of her cute creations at the Small Object! I think I am going to put my little guy on the tree, then in my car.

Let's Make Holiday Ornaments

My Christmas Ornaments 0001

I made some ornaments using my Christmas card drawings and some iron on transfers.

I printed them out and ironed them on to some soft white felt.

Here I cut out the back of the ornament from plain red felt. I left a margin around the image so I can stitch it together.

My Christmas Ornaments 0006
I just top stitched the two felt pieces together. There is a ribbon sewn into the top, too. I made sure to go slowly around the curves of the snowman!

Right before I got to the end, I stuffed the ornament with polyfill, then stitched it the rest of the way!

Here it is stuffed and sewn up!

Sweater Weather

Sweaters of the Seasons comic.
Today was so very cold and windy here in Athens. We went out to run some errands and I almost blew away! Raoul had to catch me! This windy day reminded me of this comic I drew a long time ago. I was going to do a "sweater" theme zine, but I never finished. This is one of my comics that shows sweaters for every season. Do you have a favorite sweater?

Here is Nilla
