Little bit of sewing...

I'm probably one of the last people on earth to make a Wee Wonderfuls toy - such fun, easy pattern - very pleased.




Thrifty bits


Did a little thrifting last week: these little bits of vintage land-fill caught my eye.

Finally got around to doing some crafting this weekend: first up is this little dress from a great book, Softies. This is a Posie Gets Cozy contribution. The original pattern calls for stuffing, but I just wanted to make a flat one - maybe a bookmark? Anyway, easy to make and the dress pattern is so cute.






Next...some needle felting. I got some roving wool from Japan and made this penguin for a friend...I added feet later!



Hello world...
and this little dog with button wheels - took ages to make it and I'm still not a 100 per cent happy...maybe he does need the little doggy coat?
Thanks for looking.
