Moniker silhouette pillows

Talk about sweet sophistication via needlecraft! These boy/girl silhouette moniker pillows are beautiful for baby's room. The pillow (with form included) measures 12 by 12 inches, and is made from vintage-inspired cotton. The pillow can be hand-stenciled in grey, black (as shown) or any color you desire. Theses are beautiful keepsakes for your children as they get older, and they make fabulous baby-shower gifts as well. $28

2Arghhhh, kitty!

Who says a pin cushion has to be in the shape of a tomato (remember those? My mom still has one…)? Anyway, this pirate cat pin cushion is fun for cat lovers as a decorative piece and serious seamstresses (who like to have a little fun with their sewing collection). This pirate cat is almost entirely hand-sewn and includes 16 assorted pins. Firmly stuffed with 100 percent polyester fiberfill, as well as stabilized with a plastic-bag wrapped sand pouch, this little guy is quality made -- not to mention cute as can be! $15.00

3Have your cupcake…

Can you think of a cuter inspirational message for less than $3? Not me! This single embroidery phrase comes in three various sizes with two different stitch options. Hang this in your kitchen or your bedroom to remind you of the most important things in life – not sweatin' the small stuff and enjoying the sweet stuff ... like cupcakes and more.

4Floral perfection

This beautiful and classy winter white felted brooch is not just for winter. The felted flower can be added to a purse, scarf, shirt, dress, hat – anything you can think of! It is handcrafted with winter white wool and faceted glass AB beads that dazzle in the light. $18.

5Care for a spot of tea?

How adorable is this needlepoint tea set? For $20, you can create a tea set entirely in needlepoint, and it includes a tray (12 inches long, 6.5 inches wide); teapot with lid (including the arched handle, 4 inches high, 2.75 inches wide), and 2 serving cups, a "sugar" cup (with lid) and a cream server, which are all 1.25 inches high, and 1.75 inches wide. Darling for display or playtime!
