Smalls SAL, Mannequin, Santa's Sack

Hope I didn't miss the Smalls SAL check in for the month - here's what I did - Old St. Nick Spoolkeep from Just Another Button Company.  Doesn't he look like he's ready to burst out with a "HO!HO!HO!"?

I'm goofy about anything related to needlework.  Pin cushions included.  I saw a tutorial from "The DYI Dish" here.  You can download the PDF file here. I fell in love with the idea of making my own pin cushion mannequin.  Here it is!
I already had fabric, the trim for the bottom, the pin for the shoulder….the only things I purchased were a crystal drawer pull from Hobby Lobby (40% coupon, of course!) and a candle stick holder from Dollar Tree. I can hardly wait to make more!

My package for Santa's Sack, hosted by Cheryll, is (literally) dashing through the snow as I type. WHEW! That means I made the "NICE" list. HA!

I've got Tudor news - later.  Stay tuned.

Keep yourself surrounded by stitches ~ Cheers ~
