PUT YOURSELF IN MY SUITCASE


I just got back from a much needed mini-vacation to Chicago with one of my best friends, Leah. I had no idea what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised. The lake was beaaautiful. And guess who got to go to the American Girl Store? THIS GAL.



In the past few weeks, I've become mildly obsessed with the simplicity (and cuteness) of tangrams. This little foxy fella is the first of a small series that I'm working on. They won't all be traditional tangrams (read about them here), but they're certainly inspired by them. Each little shape is cut out of a different fabric swatch, to ensure maximum cuteness and cuddleability (...do you not cuddle with your paper products?).

Any animals you'd love to see? I'm working on a bear, giraffe, turtle, an elephant, and a rabbit.
