Little Gifts for a Blog Friend

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. 
Pin It Now!


  1. Cute as can be.....they are going to love all of the goodies!

  2. Any child would be delighted with those gifts and love Mara's wallet too. How exciting it must have been to finally meet a blogging friend.
