Meet Maggie

Last week I made my first project from the Japanese craft book I got for Christmas. Here she is!

This is my first "glove dog," which my daughter promptly named Maggie. She's a little lopsided, far from perfect, but pretty good for a first attempt. Maggie started life as a $1.59 polyester glove on the rack at my local Ace Hardware. Now she has a new home and a new owner (my daughter!) to love her.

Since this pup is entirely handsewn, and has buttons for eyes and nose, she wouldn't be appropriate for small children. But for big kids like me, it's all good. Now I need to try one of the many sock animal options (maybe the elephant?) in this great book.

That is so cute!!

I love Japanese patterns. They're so cute and just slightly...off. Very original. You have a lucky daughter.

SO cute! I love the little belly-button (that is what that is, right?) and nose. Definitely a great start!

That is the cutest thing, EVER. I love it! You have to bring that book sometime, I'd love to see it.

Ack! So cute! I love the belly button, too. The tiniest details make the difference, eh? What a great project.

Ha! Cute! He reminds me of the old Pets.com dog from the commercials.

This is absolutly ADORABLE! Maggie may be lopsided but she blinds you with the cuteness factor =)
