Easter is coming!

It's about 7 weeks till Easter and time to start thinking about bunnies!
This years Mr. and Mrs. Bunny are looking quite springish in daffodil yellow and lime green.

These darling bunnies are hand stitched and embroidered by me. I use a merino blend wool  and stuff them with Bio Wool  (which means it hasn't been treated with yucky chemicals). The bunnies are about 7.5 inches to the tops of there ears and Mrs. Bunny has her cheeks lightly blushed with bees wax.

Mr. and Mrs. Bunny are now available for adoption at my Etsy shop
 They were made using another adorable pattern by Gingermelon. It's the Pocket Bunny pattern and you can find it at her etsy shop here

Two Little Kitties

These two adorable kitties are off to their new home! They were custom made for two dear sisters and the kitties are very happy they will get to play together.

They are made from merino wool blend felt and stuffed full of Bio Wool (which means happy sheep). Their dresses are made out of 100% cotton with lace trim and satin ribbon tied at the shoulders.  The pattern I used is Flora the Explorer by Gingermelon

I love making dolls from Gingermelon's patterns and I'm happy to do custom orders! It typically takes me 1 week to make a doll if I have the felt available 2 if I have to order it. I seem to get a lot of requests around Christmas and Easter so please contact me at least 4 weeks in advance if possible for the Holidays.

As I'm trying to catch up on my crafts from last year I realized I never made a post on my embroidery.

Last spring Gingermelon came out with a series of very cute embroideries. When I saw the "Walking the Dog" one I knew I had to get it. The girl in the picture had the same hairstyle as me!

The only problem was that I have a Boxer and the original had a sweet little wiener dog. So I drew up a new dog but left the rest of the embroidery the  same.

I really liked the mixing of coloured pencil and embroidery with beaded accents. It gives it a very soft look, and was fun to do, I haven't coloured in a while.

If you want to make one yourself you can find the pattern at Gingermelon's shop on Etsy
