Can you believe that miniature sweater? It has a little donut appliqued onto it! The sprinkles are individual little stitches! And the zipper pulls are incredible. It was really fun unraveling this surprise ball, since it held so many treasures!

    I am tres envious of your fabulous zipper pulls. The sweater is super cute but those pulls are a great gift. Sushi zipper pulls, how cool!

    This is so fabulous. I’ve been wanting to make some surprise balls for a while now, but haven’t been able to come up with many great ideas for what to put inside. This helps a ton! And that little sweater is just the best!

    Weighing in late on the moisturizer question….
    Simple answer. Go buy Paula Begoun’s book “Don’t Go to the Cosmetics Counter Without Me”. Now in it’s sixth edition. In it she reviews any and all skin care and makeup products you ocul dpossibly thinkof purchasing. Everything from the cheapest brand you can find at WalMart to the most expensive brand at Bloomingdales.
    She rates them against each other and details the ingredients.
    I’ve been following her advice for years, my wallet thanks her regularly and my skin is happier too!
    NAYY of course!

    Great little gifties! But I think those “zipper pulls” are actually stitch markers. The closed circular ones are for knitting and the lobster claw clasp ones are for crochet!
