My latest coffee cuff features the Cheshire Cat! The colours are a little washed out, they are far more vibrant in person. It took me a while to draft the pattern for this up, but once I started I was so happy with it. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do:
And of course, I had to add the White Rabbit buttons again. I need to find more of these beautiful little things!
That brooch is too cute! And that painting is amazing, I love 20's style artwork!
And as Joy's been a little busy lately she gave me permission to post up that things I sent her. :3
This is the package in all its glory. As the treat I got her some Lush solid perfume, it smells beautiful!
Many of you may have already seen this on the forums, but this is a coffee cuff I made. It has Alice in Wonderland embroidered on it. I love Alice, and luckily Joy does too (we were talking about it through messages) and I also love bunnies, so it was perfect. This ties in with her likes as I noticed she likes to write and who can write without fuel? The embroidery took just about 2 and a half hours and the piecing together about an hour.
This is a tissue holder. She's been ill a while and I made this so she's never going to be without a tissue again. Plus I love Russian Nesting Dolls so it perfectly ties in with my likes too.
My partner said I could go and upload pictures of what I sent her, so here's the loot:
This was a little plush fairy I decided to make after finding one of the small bottles I had stashed away in one of the many crafting drawers upstairs. I couldn't pass it up when I thought of how sweet I could make her.
I did a set of blank cards for faerykisses, as it was one of the things she'd put down in her questionnaire and decided it was the perfect opportunity for a custom stamp, which led on to inspire the large. I kept things quite minimal. Quite like a fairy that has stepped in ink and walked over the page!
Brian Froud mini-book. I love making star books, so I decided to incorporate my love of journal-making into this swap. I thought the illustration was fitting.
No pictures of the soap itself, as I was eager to wrap it! Kind of pearly-ish soap, with floral scents. First time making soap and it was a little tricky, I went disastrously wrong several times, hence why it is now a medium. I was quite pleased with the final result.
This scarf was the first project I made on my new sewing machine. I embellished the floral patterned fabric with embroidery of a toadstool and some flowers which I made from yo-yo's. I was proud of my chain-stitch on this one.
The large was a black and white polka-dot 'market style' bag. It's large, rounded at the bottom and has a pocket on the inside for storing your purse or mobile, etc. I embroidered fairy footprints onto the bottom with shiny silver embroidery floss. That stuff does not like staying together, I swear. I REALLY wanted to keep this bag, it was exactly what I needed, haha. No pictures of the bag in full, 'cause I had to accommodate for the sun to get good pictures. Maybe faerykisses could upload an action shot at some point?
