I managed to get the pattern for the little clothespin Snowman done today. Also did a little Angel clothespin angel ornament. Both are in the share box. Be sure to get all the pieces.
I had been wanting to make this guy again. I sold the original model last year at a show and forgot how much I liked him until I got him made. He is #414 Merry Christmas in Our Olde Country Cupboard Line. There is a lot to him. but only had one last year and he sold right away at the first show I did. I always say I am not going to sell my models, but always do. I live in a small house and it does get crowded.
Next I used a pattern by Aunt Manny's. I had to make up the ( To: Santa Claus and North Pole) and a "child's name on the computer, in the original pattern you were supposed to use rubber stamps. But this is much easier using the iron on paper. I got quite a few of these made. I have a whole stack yet to iron the transfers on. I am putting different names in from place on the envelopes. This way they can be used together stuck in a bowl or mail bag with different names on. I am thinking of making a santa's mailbag and using some letters in the bag with a electric candle light and lots of greenery.
This is the little Clothespin Angel I made. I like the way she turned out. She is good for using up some of those scraps we all have laying around. I used some feedsack towels my mom had purchased a long time. When she passed away, I was given all her fabric scraps.
Well, this is the last day of my Christmas in July. I will still to try post about every day, with what I got done and some more freebies.

I have gotten a ton of orders for the Hank the Scarecrow already finished, so this weekend, I guess I know what I will be doing. Please keep checking back with us. I plan on doing another giveaway with all the models of the freebies, such as the Mouse in stocking, mouse in matchbox. Clothespin Angel and Snowman next.
