Hello lovely people! Nearly 2 years ago I started making a quilt! Well it is finally finished. I'm sure I did a post about starting it but it was difficult to finish and I got bored. So I stashed it away for another day. Here it is...
It is a bit wonky in places but I'm sooo pleased with it and happy that I tried!
It was such a big quilt that I started with that I cut a strip off and I used it to make some matching cushions. As you can see I had helper!
Hello lovely people! Lately I have been making some bits and pieces for our new arrival! Yes, we are pregnant and very excited for our new bundle of joy to arrive. I have been making all sorts of things and will post about them in the next few weeks once they are finished. This week I have made a sensory colour game. I saw that people were selling and making these for a large profit and they are so easy to make!
As you can see all you need is some coloured felt and stitch them together so you have a strip. Then I found odd buttons, ribbon, flowers etc and you match these up with your colour of felt.
Hello lovely people! I have been seeing lots of these wee carry around fabric play houses on Pinterest lately and thought they were a really cute idea. I made my own version as you can see! I think Dougal approves :)
It is all made from thick felt with a layer of flat wadding and plastic mesh layered in between. This helps it to stand up.
One side unties and folds down to reveal a cute living room and wee garden complete with pond. I even made a wee dolly and found a teddy for the house.
Hello lovely people! I have finally, finally finished my Emily Peacock tapestry that I bought over 2 years ago! I got it framed and it is now hanging above my fireplace in the kitchen! I am sooo leased with it.
Hello lovely people! I have been making some dolls for a friends wedding. She wanted something lovely for her bridesmaids and a small bride and groom for either her top table or as a decoration for her table seat board. I was really excited to make some pretty dolls for her! I have never made a bride and groom. These are the bridesmaids dolls. I used lots of pretty lace, flowers and ribbons to create the dresses and add interest to the hair.
This is the bride and groom. I used felt for his suit because it was the easiest fabric to use. The bride has lace, chiffon, silk, ribbons and flowers to create her dress and hair style.
