Whilst I have been busy with my Love Me Sew stuff (fellow crafty folk, please check it out), I have been neglecting this personal blog. However, this does not mean I have been slacking off!
I am still beavering away each night and weekends, sewing up pretty fabric to make into items; be it that for weddings, items for houses, gifts for people to give (which now include Christmas stockings), or things that I [rarely] make to give as gifts from myself.
The latter of these things at the moment tend to be very new baby focused, being now at that certain age, which this post (and I think the next) is all about.
I’ve made lots of baby items in the past including little panda bears, bibs, laundry bags, aprons, bunting, taggies and quilts, and wanted to try a few things that were different or less time consuming [as with the quilts!].
So whenever I get time to make something that I want to give as a gift from myself I use as an opportunity to test new things and be a bit more creative. And the outcome…
Here is my menagerie of cute critters…
The reason behind the variety of shapes and sizes is purely down to some duff prototypes until I got the pattern I wanted! (Although, even the one the looks like a giraffe crossed with a rabbit, I think, is still pretty cute.
These little puppies, I’ve discovered, make great little gifts, a relatively quick to make and use up small left-over bits of fabric…brilliant!
These were inspired by my very own puppy – totally not relavent but I just like showing off pictures of my Winnie…possibly THE cuttest puppy in the whole world, and who I have yet to make a winter coat for…look out for that post!
