2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Ahoy! Nautical apron! on: May 19, 2008 02:30:32 PM

I bought this stripy apron from a charity shop for 70p! I designed an anchor pattern based on some buttons i had also got in the charity shop. I cut the anchor out of a linen napkin, sewed it on with blanket stitch and embellished with a baby blue rick rack chain. I perked up the waistband with some navy blue polka dot ribbon and the aforementioned buttons. It was a present for my sister, and she wants to wear it out and about! I hope you like it too!xx

Felt eggy people - i made these as gifts from felt scraps, rick rack, and wooden egg cups decorated with duck trim:

Easter bunting - also created from scraps i made this with my sister. It is attached to string with pegs so i can change it around:

Thanks for looking - Happy Easter!

10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / paper doll dress on: February 25, 2008 02:42:29 PM

I wasn't sure where to post this, as it's not really a toy but it is definitely a plush character!

The pattern for the dress is from the book Softies: simple instructions for 25 plush pals and is designed by Alicia Paulson whose blog i am absolutely addicted to!

As it is going to be a mother's day gift i wanted to present it nicely so i sewed felt onto a piece of cardboard, sewed on buttons and made a washing line out of some string. Luckily i had just the right pegs for the job!

Hope you like it! x
