nina's creations

nina chose to make gifts for everyone for the holidays...i kept forgetting to post some of them. here is what i have photographed:a handbound leather journal...i didn't photograph it well, did i? inside is lined with green felt and has pockets for pens/pencils. there are about 200 pages sewn into the cover as well.

this was a felt coin purse she made for her step-sister who loves all things skeleton and panda. she did all the stitching.
backside, complete with bone skull button. the inside has a red felt divider to separate it into 2 parts.

sock owl for sage

thanks everyone for your comments on the herbal activity ebooks! keep them coming please. right now, it seems people are divided for magical/non-magical. the one i've been working on now has a fairy in it but i think it can be easily adapted to be w/o. i'll just have to create an alternative cover, story and color page.

Wow, as talented as her mother! Everything is so neat. I especially love the skeleton panda (how clever!)

Personally, I think the magic creatures is a good thing (and like Brad said, would keep their attention). I think making an alternative form and an easily adapted non-magical form is a good idea. I look forward to working with Shawnee with these!

I think it is great that she is "into" crafting. It is always so much more fun to have company while crafting!
