 Today I went to Savers to look for red fabric, not successful in that, but I did find these, In packs of 5 for $2, Cute slinky toys. I bought the lot for $24.  60 toys in total.
They will be going to the charity Angels for the Forgotten.

Christmas Decorations.

 More Christmas baubles made. All 4 ply yarn and Styrofoam ball. Knitted in the round.
 This is a piece of fabric that I love, Hand dyed velvet, simply scrumptious! I bought a piece from Spotlight the other day, enough to make some headbands and cover a large Styrofoam ball and I will be adding this delicious trim from Crafty Hijinks to it too.
Op shopping. All this lot for $20. The top row are elastic belts with hundreds of individual metal sewn on teeth like embellishments. I will be carefully using a seam ripper to disassemble them into their individual parts so that it all can be used in costuming.
The middle row are the cutest little glass ornaments, these will be the centre of some Christmas tree ornaments more on that later.
and lastly but not least, more 4 ply yarn. A lovely time yesterday.

Christmas Gift Makes.

This is what I have been doing today, making Christmas gifts. I have made 30 of them. These are double sided cord holders. I bought a packet of 40 hair elastics in bright colours and used them on one end and the other has 2 buttons, one on each side. They measure 4" by 6 1/2" and I made a card to go with them  so that they know what it is! It fits nicely in an envelope.
