Iron Craft: Week 2

Hooray- better late than never! This week's Iron Craft challenge was to make a 'door snake' or 'draft dodger' ...our house is so cold and we only have one door! So I decided to make a different kind of snake for my best friend's new baby boy. I had some sweater pieces leftover from a blanket I made for my son (awesome blog post here). I'm so glad I kept those few extra pieces. It's a little funny looking the way it's snout scoops up, but can we just say that it adds character, ok? Here are a few pics, beginning, middle, and end. Cheers, crafters!

Next week's challenge is bunting. Yay!! 

All About Giraffes

I dig giraffes. They're sweet and lanky and I think images of them are just the cutest. I made one for my son's first birthday party invite and made a stuffed animal one for the top of his present. He likes to chew on his head… ah, the joys of a one year old. 

I've also included a mini-giraffe round-up. What kind of blogger would I be without a giraffe round-up? Seriously.
