Reindeer Games

The holidays are fast approaching! (Can you believe it is already December?!) And Christmas music has been on the airwaves for weeks now.

I’ve been decorating the store (and my apartment) with all manner of cute woodland creatures and snow people.

This little Reindeer was drawn using my trusty Copic markers and pens, Papermate Flair pen, Sharpies, and Prismacolor. A little bit of chalk marker was used for some of the white highlights. I plan on drawing these much larger and reproducing them for decorations around the store. Stay tuned!

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas

Handmade StockingsStockings for myself and my furry friends.

‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, two creatures were stirring as they’d heard a mouse. The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, each hand-made…and covered in cat hair.

Handmade Stockings with CatFerdinand loves his stocking and his new goldfish toy.

This post welcomes the newest addition to Pink Toe Press‘ holiday line-up: Custom Pet Stockings. These stockings are hand-made with love and care using felt and embroidery threads. The stockings you see in this posting were made for my two cats. Customers are able to personalize the colors of the stocking from available felt colors to match the color fur of their pets. Hand-embroidered and embellished with vintage buttons and ric-rac, these stockings are a must-have for any pet lover!

Handmade StockingsThe two design options: Realistic fur colors; Festive bright colors.

Currently, there are two color options available: Realistic Fur Colors and Festive Bright Colors. Each will have a plain backing with most embellishments saved for the front of the stocking. Designs are reversible and can be hung either way.

Merry Christmas!

Rudolph the THREAD Nosed Reindeer

You know Dasher and Dancer, and Prancer and Vixen, Comet and Cupid, and Donner and Blitzen.
But do you recall, the most famous reindeer of all? It’s Rudolph, the THREAD-nosed reindeer!

I made this fun Christmas decoration the other day and I’ve been dying to share it ever since. This is a decorative embroidery I made using custom PAINT BY NUMBER FABRIC. The fabric was custom made using vintage paint by number artwork, which I then placed in a faux-bois embroidery hoop. The snowflake and Red-Nose embroidery was hand-applied and the whole piece is finished in the back to make the artwork more durable and to prevent any threads from coming loose.

The perfect addition to any Christmas decor. Just the right amount of Christmas and Kitsch to really make a place. A fun take on paint by number in a more manageable size. This is a Pink Toe Press EXCLUSIVE. You won’t find this anywhere other than the Pink Toe Press Etsy shop.
