What I made in last three days

While my boyfriend was away, I cleaned up our room and organized my fabric stocks.
Then, I enjoyed making these items. It was very happy time for me.

At first, I finished a custom order.
I made up these 18 small dolls for hanging.

I especially like this Den-den daiko(A drum with beads which make sounds).

Then, I made some plushes with beads.

I got these beads in one of my favorite shops and wanted to make something with them.
With the other color beads, I made these elephants too.

I wanted to make some more tiny items, so I made these house key cases.

I put a cat on each back.

I found some beautiful flower printed fabrics and laces, and I made this scarf.

And I made these lanyards.

When I found this linen fabric, I wanted to stitch on it with Sashiko cotton embroidery thread.

I enjoyed stitching freely.

And at last, I made these pouches for winter.
Wool pouch with lace
I used all of my favorite goods what I found in these days. Wool fabrics, laces, buttons and leather pieces.

I enjoyed putting them on this little pouch.

Yes, I made such a lot! I concentrated in making too much so I didn't take a picture of them and it took more than a day for taking pictures and editing them. I took more than 300 pictures...

Enjoy sewing!!!!!
