Chocolate so pretty!

That's what Trapper said when I gave him his new felt doughnut. Then he called it a tire. Boys!

I was inspired to make this felt confection by this website. I say inspired, but it's more like copying. Hey, I can't think of everything first............
If you want to make one, check out this tutorial on
I sewed mine by hand, so if you don't have a machine it's pretty simple to do the old fashioned way. The sprinkles are a varigated baby yarn. In hindsight, I shouldn't have used pastels b/c they are washed out. Next time, I'll use something smaller to make the middle hole--the spool I used was a skoash too big.

Trapper's Easter Basket

I really didn't think I'd pull this one out. The only thing I didn't accomplish is the homemade playdough I was going to make. Oh well! There's kind of a color theme going: green, orange, blue, brown.

In the basket is:

1 brown flannel bunny, courtesy of this free pattern:
the carrot is my design!
1 star lacer for hand-eye coordination and dexterity
3 pom pom chickies
3 paper mache eggs
