I made her this card:
- white card stock
- page from vintage book
- scrap from altered 1880's ledger page
- red card stock scrap
- label from vintage sewing thread spool
- vintage button
- "happy birthday" stamped in black ink
I also did a little sewing as part of my friend's gift:
In honor of my friend's autumn birthday - and my love of squirrels - I made her a little stuffed squirrel. The body and tail are made from brown fabrics, and I added a vintage button eye and a ribbon tie.
It's about 4 1/2" high and about 4" wide. The pattern was from a vintage needlework book; it was actually an applique shape for a children's quilt. I couldn't resist turning it into a stuffed shape.
The squirrel and card were both fun to make and I was only too happy to make them for a gem of a friend.
