Felties for Father's Day

Hello, Dear Ones.
Father's Day is just around the corner so I thought I would show you my felties 
I've made for my little granddaughter, Carter.

I'm wearing out my little olden feather tree! :)

Here's the group of felties before I poked them on the tree.

My most tiny dainty talented fingers have been busy. :)

Even a little seasonal tree needs a tree topper so this is what I came up with.
A grill, for we all know Daddys love to grill, right?

You may remember these little girls I made to go with the Mother's Day felties.
They will  be with Daddy now.

Silly little Daddys with googly eyes.

Different hair styles.

All are wearing their Father's Day ties.
There are six Daddys.

I had to make doggies too.
My daughter's little family has an English chocolate lab - my granddog -
 so I made little Finnleys (that his name).
 B  I  N  G  O...oh, that's another dog! :)

There you have it, my silly little Father's Day felties for Carter.

Pin It

Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Butterfly Kisses

There's two things I know for sure:
She was sent here from heaven and she's
daddy's little girl.
As I drop to my knees by her bed at night
She talks to Jesus and I close my eyes and
I thank God for all the joy in my life
Oh, but most of all
For butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer;
sticking little white flowers all up in her
hair; "Walk beside the pony, Daddy, it's my first ride."
"I know the cake looks funny, Daddy, but I sure tried."
In all that I've done wrong I know I must
have done something right to deserve a hug
every morning and butterfly kisses at night.
Sweet 16 today
She's looking like her mama a little more everyday
One part woman, the other part girl.
To perfume and make-up from ribbons and curls
Trying her wings out in a great big world.
But I remember
Butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer; sticking
little white flowers all up in her hair.
"You know how much I love you, Daddy, But if you
don't mind I'm only gonna kiss you on the cheek this time."
With all that I've done wrong I must have done
something right to deserve her love every morning
and butterfly kisses at night.
All the precious time
Like the wind, the years go by.
Precious butterfly.
Spread your wings and fly.
She'll change her name today.
She'll make a promise and I'll give her away.
Standing in the bride-room just staring at her.
She asked me what I'm thinking and I said "I'm not
sure-I just feel like I'm losing my baby girl."
She leaned over...gave me butterfly kisses with her mama there,
Sticking little white flowers all up in her hair
"Walk my down the aisle, Daddy-it's just about time."
"Does my wedding gown look pretty, Daddy? Daddy, don't cry!"
Oh, with all that I've done wrong I must have
done something right.
To deserve your love every morning and butterfly
kisses-I couldn't ask God for more, man this is what love is.
I know I gotta let her go, but I'll always remember
every hug in the morning and butterfly kisses.

    Happy fathers day to your hubby and Carter's daddy.

  9. Your Father's Day collection for Carter's tree is adorable! It's hard to pick a favorite, but for me it's a tie between the puppies and the grill. You are so talented and could start a small business selling these!

  17. Hi Shelia, I am so glad we are where I can connect to my blogging friends. It nigh on to impossible where we stayed in Kansas. I could send emails in Kansas and now in Houston I can't send emails. Crazy huh? Such is life and I choose to roll with it no matter what. HA!

    Your felties are so handsome just as they should be. Carter will learn someday how special they are... hand made by her clever grandma. I love the grill so much. The pups are darling as well.

    I saw your previous post of your living room. Soon I will see your beautiful home and the most 'special thing' is meeting you and your hubs. We will call you to let you know we are on the way Monday morning. I won't be able to email you but I can get on FB. Sigh!

    See you soon.
    Love, Jeanne

  18. Shelia, why is it that you are the siblings that got all the beauty and all the talent?
