Today I have two more sets to show you. Here I have Dorothy and Toto and the Lollipop Munchkins. I think I love them the most, the Munchkins that is. They are just so cute….. but then every time I finish a set I say that, but I think this time I really mean it… 21 Wizard of Oz ornaments done, 6 more to go and then on to the next batch….
If you’re stuck for ideas for Christmas this year, I really recommend Cheswick Company for ideas. She has all the holidays and seasons covered with big and small projects. I have no shares in Cathy’s business, honest. I just think these are brilliant and when someone. in this case, gets a hand crafted ornament, they know they are getting something special, that you took the time to make and not something that comes from a factory.
On top of that, everyone you give them to, or sell to, will have a unique gift because with just a few simple tweaks of fabric colours and/or embellishments, you are personalizing them. People love to receive things that are a one of, and not what everyone else has…. Just a thought…
Here are Dorothy and Toto. I know it’s hard to see, but up close and personal, Toto is a button. I had a light bulb go off and thought, that’s brilliant. As luck would have it, I found one card of little dog buttons, the last one they had and it’s a good size. Maybe a bit small, but we’ll call them Toto’s puppies.
Cathy suggests painting Dorothy’s shoes red, but I have a bottle of red glitter Stickles and with patience, I used that to give Dorothy her ruby slippers..
And the last ones for now, the Lollipop Munchkins. Didn’t I tell you they are cute. Had so much fun with their hair… That’s it for now. Two more characters to make before I head off to Wonderland to visit Alice and company.
