Last of 2012's projects - sorta

The most fun gift I made this year has to be the dog toys.
I gave them as gifts to 6 dogs.  I have pictures of 5 of them. 
Here are some of the recipients enjoying them.

This is my Tink



Ollie again


It is such fun seeing them being enjoyed. I have several more to give to friends who thought their dogs would enjoy them too.  I will work on them this weekend for delivery in the new year.
I also made 12 rice bag covers with some great seasonal flannel I found at JoAnns
I saw a video somewhere on a google search on making infinity scarves.  It suggested using Minkie.  I couldn't find real Minkie but did find a good substitute on sale at JoAnns. I think this is it.
These were really quick and easy to whip up and they were immediately modeled by their new owners once the wrapping paper was removed.  I actually made 2 more on request of my niece on the right in the picture. There is now a black one and a brown one in the mail.

Sorry for the fuzzies.  The picture was taken in very poor lighting and then cropped to get the best view of the scarves at the expense of my sister and nieces. So Sorry ladies.
Then I made 4 more sleds for a great way to give cash as a gift.  The cash is wrapped in the red or gold paper that's on top of the candy bar.

I also made an additional set of placemats using the same pattern as in my previous post but forgot to take a picture.
That about wraps up my year end doings.  I do have a couple of more gifts to make for friends I haven't yet seen for the 2012 Christmas season but I guess they will be the start of my 2013 projects and I will post them next week.
Wishing you all a Happy and Healthy New Year.  Stay Safe.


  1. What fun gifts you made! I have wanted to try my hand at an infinity scarf. Do you know which tutorial you used? I found one but it is a bit confusing.

    thanks for sharing!

  2. You've been a busy girl! Lovely gifts, and I really want to try making some of those infinity scarves! Whoop whoop!!

  3. Lovely gifts you made. The dogs certainly looked like they enjoyed theirs. I think the sleds with the cash is a very creative project.

    Great Job on everything. :)


  4. Love the scarves! Looks like the ladies love them too! ;)

  5. I too love the scarves. Another project to put on my list, thank you for the link to the tutorial

  6. My friend gave me a rice bag for Christmas and I've used it every night while the power was out. I put it on the fireplace for a few minutes until it was good and warm and then into my bed beside my feet. Perfect! blessings, marlene

  7. Wow! What great projects! Love all the puppy pics!

  8. I received the treats in the mail. THANK YOU.~ We are just delighted with the rice bags and the beautiful zip bag.


  9. What great gifts!!
    I received the rice bags and goodies today along with that pretty zipper bag...thanks so much Selina!!!! The rice bags will come in handy for all the sore muscles associated with moving into our new home....the chocolate will help as well ;) ....and the bag will find a special place in my new sewing/craft room!!!


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a message.
