I got to meet a blog friend in person in November while she and her family were traveling in the states. Mara is an American, but married to a Greek and lives in Greece with her husband and her son and daughter. We met at a small fabric shop in Albuquerque. I made a few little gifts for Mara and her children. Got to keep those wee ones occupied on car trips you know. Mara's Blog is Secretly Stitching. Would you believe I forgot to take my camera with me? Oh well I did take pics of the goodies I made for Mara and her children.
|A monster pencil pouch for Mara's son, a little dog for here young daughter and a little wallet for Mara. I wrapped the little wallet in some Southwest fabric.|
|This is a tiny little dog I made using wool. I stitched the collar in place and added a heart "dog tag".|
|I even added a little tail on the back.|
|You can see here how small the dog is. Mara's daughter is 3 years old (? I think), so the dog is just right for little hands to hold.|
