I’m so sorry to have been ever so quiet on the blogging front recently, but to say I’ve been a busy bee is an understatement.  I’ve been sewing sewing sewing and more sewing and not had time for much else, but look at what I made!  I’m so pleased with these little things.  The little chap is called Jacques.  He’s part French Sailor, part Gondalier and part Matador.  He really is adorable, and a bit BIGGER than I intended – he’s about 2 feet tall and very cuddly and fun.  He has a hairy little chest, a flabby little tummy and gorgeous little espadrilles. 

The little dress is reversible (I do love a reversible anything) and is pompoms ahoy!  It’s dingly and dangly and just so cute and perfect I wish it was my size. 

And finally, the skirt.  I’ll take a better picture of it in context, but I just wanted to show you the flowery applique on the front.  I wanted it to be bold, folky and mid-century feeling.  I’m very very pleased with it…

Oh I love her so much!  Isn’t she pretty?  Trying to sleep but wide awake because of that pesky pea…

 

Do you remember I showed you this a while ago? Well look at it now!  I love the faces, I love the zingy colours, I love the stars, I love the words, I love it all!  I want to sail away with them into the night while the owl serenades me…

 

 

I’ve had such a busy and fun week making Christmas commissions for sending all over the world.  It’s so exciting to think of happy little things I’ve made that are now sitting on walls and beds and sofas in America and Denmark and Australia!  I can’t show you all of what I’ve been up to as lots of it is secret present stuff, so you’ll have to make do with tiny weeny tantalising close-ups.  Up first - some Papercut commissions…

Next, I’ve been making lovely lettered bunting for Dorothy and Theodore.  You buy the letters you need and then it all buttons together…so when no-one’s looking you can make anagrams too!

My screen printed birdies finally got their legs this week.  These happy little chaps are available to buy as cards (£2 each or 3 for £5) or as an A4 size screen-print on lovely heavy paper and in a choice of colours for £6…

And lastly – I’ve been commissioned to make an Owl and the Pussycat fabric picture and am super excited about it.  I’ve been meaning to make one for ages and I’ve got as far as the sketch so far for the customer to approve.  Imagine how amazing it’s going to look in fun fabrics!!!!  This is only a part of it, you wait til you see it finished….
