kcwc: day six

September 25th, 2010

Nothing fancy today, just some laze around the house pants for a chilly Saturday. Cashmere pants. I wish I had some. The baby hasn’t benefited much from kcwc this time around–not that he’s noticed.  I’ve got a stack of pants sewn up for him that still need elastic, but they’re just pants. These are the best of the bunch and even they aren’t that exciting. I stopped buying sweaters to felt a while ago because it was getting a little hoard-y, but now I’m thinking he might need some sweater overalls for this winter.  Maybe we’ll take a little family trip to the thrift store this afternoon.


Today’s giveaway is from Chez Beeper Bebe. Holly makes clever and cute things at an amazing pace. Every time I look at her blog she’s got some new, fantastic idea made plush. She has kindly offered one of her baby on a stick toys to the winner of this giveaway! My kids always ended up hitting themselves in the face with their wooden rattles (hey, no jokes) so these soft, easy to grasp, crazy cute rattles would have been just right for them. Also, who can resist a name like baby on a stick?

To enter you can tell us about your favorite little softie, plushy, cuddly thing when you were little, or a soft toy you’ve made for you kids, or what you are going to do today.  Good luck!


The winner is

#23: Wendy!

    I to love Chez Beeper Bebe blogsite and all the amazing things she creates! I knitted my son a bear which I think has a lot of character (after just doing scarves it was my first big knitting project and I was pretty proud of myself for finishing it – only took ~ 6 months:)). Thanks for the giveaway, hope I get picked.

    My favorite thing to make as far as plush goes is a doll by bitofwhimsydolls.com.

    I would totally choose the sleeping baby on a stick and hope that it would have a good influence on my non-sleeping baby (who’s not on a stick). The last toy I made for one of my kids was a cute crocheted monkey. It was lost within a week.

    Hoorayyy!!!! I finished my little girl’s dress. I love everything that I have seen Elsie make during the course of this week. I feel lame putting together only one outfit, but as I mentioned I do not have a sewing machine so this one is completely handmade. I am just giving the links for the two posts i put on my blog about it (Flickr is a blocked site in the UAE so I could not post pictures).
    Part 1
    Part 2

    Thank you all for the inspiration and all the cool tips.
