I knitted this Miniature in tan and red because you could not see the lights on the red or green or navy. the second sweater I knitted a wreath by isolating the design. Then I sewed beads and a bow on in gold. The collar is crocheted. The third one I have made before. All have covered hangers. All are made with Trenzado yarn and all are for sale in my Etsy store.

I knitted this little miniature sweater with roll cuffs, band and collar. I isolated a motif of tree and duplicate stitched with a green and silver sparkle yarn. I sewed the star at the top. It is for sale in my Etsy store.
Okay, Here is my second try at needle felting.I am starting to get the hang of it and it is fun. Only stabbed my finger one time. I bought a six pack of needles from the slimchicken web site http://www.etsy.com/shop/slimchicken?ref=seller_info and it really paid off. There are different sizes for doing different things. I also sent her (Jodi) a picture and asked her to send the colors of merino wool roving that she sees in the picture so I would have all to choose from for the project. She even sent me small amounts of a mohair and another sample that has real shine to it called Firestar.It looked funny to me to have the bird on only one slipper and the other plain so I added a little. This came out larger than I wanted it to but how do you get all the colors in on a smaller bird? lol These will be for sale in my Etsy Store.
I knitted both sweaters with the same color and brand of yarn. I took the picture on the left during the day and the one on the right at nightime with a flash. The one on the left is the true color. Both are for sale in my Etsy store.
