My Creative Space.


It feels like I haven't been getting much 'done' at all this week! (sewing-wise)
I have managed to set up an online shop with Felt at last. And was photographed with the dolls yesterday. Which was an experience - its usually just the dolls!
But I've started on another custom order for a brother and sister. I am making 2 of each - one set is for the grandmother! I'm making each set from one toddler outfit of each child, but with slight differences.


The brother has very tight curls, so I'm just seeing how it goes. Brown thread didn't really show up enough on the felt, so I ended up using dark grey. Its good to be challenged with something new. (!)

I love this idea of the granny having the dolls too.

You're right a stretch is good & that's how you get better.

I've got a super curly kid & whenever I "do" hair I loop & curl wool around on top of the surface & then just randomly stitch it on (crazy style). It works well.

Thanks for the Birthday wishes. Yes a year has gone by fast, and now I have learnt to pace myself by posting regularly but not too mch, because I just couldn't keep up.
Will I see you at Kraftbomb?
