Not scared now - honest!

Nearly a year after making Finn an dinosaur costume he finally plucked up the courage to wear it!

He needs a bit more practice to control his tail but his roar is pretty good!

Animal Magic

As promised - animal masks for the girls.

You might just be able to tell from the photos, these have padded sections making the masks 3D and soft to wear!

Finn enjoyed modelling each one - the lion being his favourite!

Is it a bird? Is it a plane?

I've decided on a Superhero theme this year Finn and his NCT boy buddies for their third birthdays. So I've created Batman, Spiderman and Captain America masks made from felt. I'm in the planning stage for Finn's outfit so watch out for Super Finn to be revealed in October. Lets hope he likes it more that the dinosaur costume I made him last year and he's still too wary to wear!

Don't worry - I've not forgotten the girls - they're coming next!

Christmas comes early

We may be having beautiful weather and a much needed Indian summer but i've just finished off my first Christmas item. These four stockings are for Nina and her family, I hope you-know-who decides they've been good this year and leaves some lovely treats on 25th December! 

They are lined with blue fabric and padded with soft wadding. Each top and toe is a mix of beautiful Scandinivan Folk fabric in a mix of blue and red. The loops are made from red giant ric rac and each side is finished with a row of blue, red and white hand stitching in pearl cotton.

The final touch are the matching name tags. Backed in the blue and red gingham and with a layer of wadding the names are embroidered in red pearl.

Each stocking is unique and I'm planning to create more using the same fabrics as well as other combinations for my craft stall sale in November.
