WIPs, Muffs and 50 Shades Of …Pretty!

Morning my lovelies! I did a post back in January about the plans I had for makes, so I thought it might be nice to see what happened. Ready? Follow me!

First, the little bears made from the boot fair fur…


They are called the L’adorable brothers, Vanille and Menthe and if you look really hard Vanille has a little macaron charm that I think I will put on all my bears.

Next a couple of the cards I made from the lovely kit designed by Santoro and available from the Glitter Pot…..


I think they are so pretty, and great for teen girls as well as grown ups.

I made these little tattoo hearts from a themed box from Felted Fancies Supplies ( they have a shop on Facebook).


And staying with felt, this little flapper girl is my own design, as is the little brooch.


Last felt pierces I promise! These eggs are made from a pattern by the hugely talented Sew Sweet, find her range of gorgeous patterns on Facebook and at http://www.sewsweet.co.uk.

imageNot bad as the instructions are all in Japanese but definitely need to practice this skill!

Last week I had the opportunity to knit a piece for Wool and The Gang who are a very trend aware company selling their own brand yarns and patterns. Unfortunately my tension was off so it won’t be going on the website, but I get to keep it! I am just embroidering on the deconstructed leopard print and I will be all set for next winter…


And finally, I have decided that for next winter I need a muff, No sniggering in the back row please! it seems to me that it will solve the dog walking dilemma of having to remove gloves to pick up poo, dropping glove in said poo.. you get the picture! si I am making one from this book…….


The talented Stephanie Dosen writes the most magical blog on wordpress called Tiny Owl Knits, here’s the violet covered muff that I will be attempting….


And of course I will be painting, I have just finished a portrait of my brother’s children which I completely failed to take a picture of!

So, whats going on at your craft table/tray?lap? id love to see what you have going on!

I paint pictures and commissioned pet portraits, the rest of the time I make pretty things out of felt and walk in the woods with Darcey and Milo ( my dogs).
