Colour & a bit of Audrey!




I've been sorting through all the beads/bracelets that I use for the dolls necklaces. With the addition of some from America (thanks friend!), I have quite a few to choose from now. I have to get them when I see them, as its not a good feeling running low on these precious things! They can either stay on the dolls or be worn by the recipient.






A bit more colour here - with a cushion that has been 'sectioned'. I am not really a pink person, but I do like the pink and green together! (and yes, I love the retro swirls!)





And I've also been sorting out some items for a custom made doll - requested to be dressed like Audrey Hepburn. Her hair won't be like Audrey's, just to warn you! It'll be light brown. I think I'll be going even heavier on the eye make-up for this one. Yay!

Love the wee pin cushions. Would like to get my hands on that pattern! Any suggestions?

I have done some pincushions in this design before, but these are actually cushions! They are just a bit bigger than a dinner plate. I just drew the shape onto newspaper, and folded it into sections to get the right angles/sizes for each quarter. Its easier to start with just one fabric for the whole circle. If you are going to do a cushion, you will need a very big needle! So a pincushion will be much easier to start with:)
