It’s summer, and acrylic slippers are too warm for this time of year. I’ve been attempting to make cotton slippers, and haven’t success as the fabric stretches. I also haven’t found the correct tweak to the pattern I’m using – it will be a whole new slipper pattern by the time I’m done.

I’m back to the drawing board, as this pair didn’t work either (I call these the ‘Blue Monday Slippers). They mostly fit FraizePlays, but they’re a bit loose in the footbed and shift a lot when walking. I’ll get it right eventually though!
Last Monday, I came up with a cute little project during my broadcast. I had been looking at making Hexipuffs, but wanted a new craft item that wasn’t already out there. I needed a new project that was quicker than my LPDs and Snarky Snakes as well. Ultimately, I ended up with this guy:

Mr. Sticky Up Hair has the same embroidered face as the LPDs and Snakes. But he’s gained a rockin’ haircut, and sports a key ring so that he can go on adventures with anyone that hooks him onto their keys. He’s currently a new offer on my Revlo Rewards Page.
Pot ‘o Knitting Needles
After speaking with the local warming shelter, I began making some hats to donate. The shelter specifically requested items for men, so I’m using blues and grays, and some leftover camouflage yarn to make some items for them to give to folks in need.

Yeah, he was supposed to be a draft excluder for the front door, but using the wrong gauge and finding him too cute once he was stuffed with polyfil, he’s just the resident Snarky Snake now.
Girlnovember’s El Senor Snarky Jingle Snape Snake Sr.
His name was determined during my Twitch broadcast. “Jingle” refers to the jingle bell on his tail, as a makeshift rattle. “Snape” because we were going to use Harry Potter house colors, but that didn’t quite happen. The name still stuck. 🙂
