DIY Wild Bird Feeder Hanger (taking a Bear Break)!

This weekend has proven to be a letdown in the bear making department, so I decided to take a break and make something for my bird feeders!   I have a couple hummingbird feeders that were hanging from my tree with red ribbons.  The ribbons faded and it looked terrible.   I was going to take a trip to the store and buy some hangers but as I was doing laundry, I decided to try to make my own from a couple Dry Cleaner's hangers.   It was so simple and they turned out great!   Here is a picture tutorial showing how easy it is to make!  I'm not sure if this will hold a lot of weight but it works great for my hummingbird feeders!

I hope you have a lovely Sunday!   Back to the bears for me!   Hugs & Blessings,  Janice

Finished a Yorkie Puppy from my Moxy Fox Pattern

For those of you who sew, you know changing fabric and making a few changes to a pattern, you will achieve a completely different look.  I love the size and shape of my "Moxy Fox" pattern, so I decided to revise it and make a little Yorkie dog.   The fabric I purchased is not what I had in mind (though I did find the right fabric in my stash after searching this past weekend...after it was too late and I had already cut the pup from my ordered fabric).  Anyway, I do think she turned out cute and even though her coloring is more gold than the tan I was hoping for, I think with her airbrushed accents, she looks enough like a Yorkie to call her one!   Her name is Bindy and she is currently on eBay.   Click Here to go to Bindy's eBay Auction - ends Thursday morning!
 Below is the Moxy Fox Pattern Revised to make Bindy!
Have a wonderful week and if you are creating, try making some changes to a pattern you have used before to see what you come up with!
Hugs & Blessings,
