Pickle is Fab…

I have designed an alternative to a card and I was so excited that poor Pickle had to have his Valentine’s early…

I’ve made a little Pocket in the front and back so that I can add a love note

Felt fairy lights…

Okay, so I was supposed to have made these and had them up for Christmas…but I was making things for other people which took precedence.  Today I had a spare five minutes to finish them off and I really love them.

They don’t add to your electricity bills either. Hooray!   x

Crafty Christmas 2012…

Well, it’s been a very busy and wonderful year as well as being the most difficult and rewarding…it’s nearly at its close.  Time for one final blog before we move into 2013…

I made quite a lot of things for people for Christmas presents this year, half of which I forgot to take pictures of, but here are a few bits and pieces I did remember to snap.

Firstly I found a good use for some of our many wine corks.  I made them into stamps! cork 003

I then made the stamps into Christmas cards for Baby Polly and Oliver.  The bodies of the robins were printed using half cut potatoes.  I don’t think I’ve done a potato print since my age reached double figures!

I made Christmas tree decorations for Polly and Joe

I made a picture of Simon Armitage for Mrs Armitage using a sample paint pot of her feature walls, canvas and a map of Sheffield

I made my Panda Bear a fabric picture of one of her favourite Jeffrey Lewis songs/lyrics “Don’t be upset”

“Don’t be upset it’s only an octopus
Don’t bother it and I’m sure it won’t bother us.”

 Jeffrey Lewis

I made the background from my old summer dress, the octopus is made of felt and his embellishments are some sequins from the back of one of my skirts…I’m pretty sure no-one will notice that some are missing…

I also made Mrs Moz some design your own Morrissey shoes…

I’m very excited about this coming year, I feel it will have greatness in it.  Thank you for all of your support and kind words throughout 2012…I hope you all have a wonderful New Year.  Looking forward to seeing you in 2013 xxx

Morrissey For Life…

Mrs Moz took her dedication to her husband one step further and declared her undying love for him in tattoo format.  She had this design tattooed on her foot.

As part of her birthday present I decided to make the design out of felt for her and frame it.

 

It was wonderful fun to make and I would now like to leave my library job and go into making people’s tattoos out of felt as a full time job x

Introducing Polly…

On Tuesday 23rd October 2012 the world got just that little bit more lovely.  Polly arrived.  I have kept very few of Thom’s outfits from when he was tiny as other friends have had their own small people and I’ve handed Thom’s clothes on.  I did keep one outfit that Mrs Penis Penis bought for Thom from Beauty and the Bib because I loved it so much.  When Polly arrived I had the compulsion to give her something very dear to me, so I decided to customise it for her.

Welcome to the world little one…such wonderful adventures await x

Send me the pillow, the one that you dream on…

This Christmas I have been less crafty than usual as I’ve had my hands a little full with young Thom, but I did get to make a little something for Mrs Moz and my wonderful Pickle tray…

Mrs Moz finally received the material version of an idea I had wanted to make for her for some time.  I want to make one for myself at some point too… a Morrissey pillow case….

I also managed to customise some pants for Pickle…wacca wacca wacca wacca wacca…

Hope you all had a crafty Christmas xxx

I embroider therefore I am…

This week marked the anniversary of Pickle’s birth, and what a lovely day we had!  I had realised some weeks before that poor wonderful Pickle had never been on the receiving end of one of my crafty inventions, so I set about putting that awful oversight straight.  I really do think I excelled myself this time…7 hours and an audio book later it was complete…
