feeling crafty: felt animals

As I told you on my last post, I decided to dedicate some of my time to crafting. I started with the cute lady bug you can find on my blog button. My husband loved it :)
Here's the image, in case you're interested.
I've also found lots of cute patterns such as this one, but I decided to simplify it a bit.
This is the cat I started yesterday. I haven't had the time to finish it yet. I pretty much googled for images of cats - and as you can tell, it's not that difficult to use any kind of drawing as a pattern. I embroidered its face so it'd look exactly like the cat in the drawing.

getting ready for fall - part two

3. Start some craft projects. I've decided to dedicate some time during this week to start some craft projects, including some things I saw on Pinterest that absolutely inspired me.

I love the idea of decorating my baby girl's bedroom with these cute butterflies. Aren't they beautiful? I just love butterflies...
And what about these cute baby owls?? I found them here. It looks perfectly doable, doesn't it? Oh, and I love that you can download the template which makes it a lot easier for us beginners. I have already started this one. I'll be posting pictures soon :)
These are some other stuff I'd love to try sometime soon:
