From a few bits & pieces

Postby LeeInEdmonton » Dec 28, 2008 12:07 am

Myrt has made some Christmas ornaments that can be used on a coffee table or hung on the tree. They are mice carolers. She made them last year but did not have time this year to make more.

Those are the cutest things! Very close sewing and quite imaginative. Love the ribbons on the tails! Those would sell like hotcakes in a Christmas Craft Fair here in B.C., for sure.

Now those are sweet. Did she use a pattern or just made them out of her head? Very appealing.

Daughter has 2 made by her grandmother. They have sand filled 1 litre pop bottle bodies. Are these the same Lee?

Lyn:

Nope...these meeces are about 5" overall height with bodies of felt with a seam running up the front & back & stuffed with quilt backing making them light enough to hang on a tree yet still stable enough for standing on a coffee table. I believe she found a pattern for cutting the felt to shape the body & head many years ago in a quilting book she found in a secondhand bookstore. Of course, she dresses them according to what she has on hand hence the hats are different as are the lace & stuff on the bodies.
