One gift I wanted to make this year was a Gruffalo cushion for my nephew. He loves the book, and last year my sister got him Gruffalo bedding but it was terrible quality so now I made him this cushion for Christmas.
Maddeningly thought I had to do lots of research to make sure I got all the details and now I have the music of it in my head!!!
I send out quite a few custom orders but never want to post pictures till the items arrive with their new owners, so here are a two sweet little ballerina dolls that I know are at their new homes now 🙂
I really love making the ballerina dolls because they are just sooooo cute when finished 🙂
Well I finished and posted all the custom orders from my craft fair on Sunday.
As usual I get so happy when I finish that I wrap up the order and forget to take a picture!!
I did remember to take one picture though, of a pair of Christmas stockings.
It was nice adding the extra touch of an initial to each of the stockings. I hope the two little girls receiving them will love them (and that they get lots of presents inside them!)
Later tonight is St. Martins so I have my bowl of candy ready, and a little lantern to set outside so kids know we have candy. I also made a couple extra lanterns from my tutorial to put in the window.
This afternoon I finished the last cushion in my custom order.
I just adore how they turned out and tomorrow the will be on their way to a new home and a snuggly couch!
Tomorrow I will doing the final testing of my next doll pattern. I had planned to have the pattern ready by the weekend but got delayed when my printer got hungry and just kept munching up paper. Now I have a new printer and can print off the pattern to check it is all correct. Hopefully I will have it ready by Monday for you all (maybe Tuesday is I get
Over the weekend I received a custom order for some cushion covers. It has been one of my first custom orders on Etsy and it has been a great experience working with my client to make something she likes.
I spent the last two days cutting out fleece and felt for them and lots of pinning and measuring too.
I completed three of them so far and have another 6 to finish by the weekend, so will be very busy!
