Finally got around to doing some crafting this weekend: first up is this little dress from a great book, Softies. This is a Posie Gets Cozy contribution. The original pattern calls for stuffing, but I just wanted to make a flat one - maybe a bookmark? Anyway, easy to make and the dress pattern is so cute.

Next...some needle felting. I got some roving wool from Japan and made this penguin for a friend...I added feet later!

Hello world...
and this little dog with button wheels - took ages to make it and I'm still not a 100 per cent happy...maybe he does need the little doggy coat?
Thanks for looking.

gah! the little doggie's tail is just about killing me! :)
perhaps it's not a coat he needs, but eyes? not too sure...

Awww, there's too much cuteness here! I love the little doggy, he's adorable - look at those button wheels - eeeee.....and the penguin - too cute!

Looks like you had a fabulous time in Japan and came back with stacks of crafty goodness!
