For the last couple of months I have really lost my sewjo. That was until I stumbled upon this gorgeous pattern by Retro Mumma. I am in love with this sleepy bear and all the magic that comes with Softies. Not only are they cuddly, they can be loving companions for any boy or girl. I watch my daughter still play and talk with her softies and it warms my heart.
Along with bears I have also made a few Geometric Clutches, cute, stylish and super useful. Got to love useful things. This is the first pattern that I published and have now sold to all corners of the world. From Dubai to Indonesia, America to France. The Mellebug Wristlet Clutch Pattern is spreading cuteness everywhere.
All of these lovely wares are now available in my etsy store:
I think I have found my latest craft love: CROCHET!!
I tried learning crochet a couple of years ago now and found it terribly difficult and my hands would cramp up something shocking so I threw it in the corner (yes, my frustration got the better of me) and vowed one day I will conquor it. Fast forward a couple of years and I just wanted to have a go at making a granny square blanket. I retrained my fingers to choose another more comfortable position and just crocheted and crocheted. I ended up completing my over the knee throw blanket (sorry I neglected to take photos).
Half way through another blanket for my daughter I got side tracked and started to make cute wittle animals.
I loved the idea of making a set of brothers and sisters, so incredibly cute.
The love of crochet still consumes me as I am really enjoying being around my family. I may be crocheting whilst they are all watching telly but we are together. With sewing I am shushed away to the corner so they dont hear the whirring of the machine, plus I cant really listen to any television when sewing either.
I have custom listings of either a set of three or just individuals on myetsy store.In these listings you can choose which colour you would like their bodies made from, colour of their clothing, flower no flower, shorts or no short, and more and more options. I really can make to your request, well to some extent. If you are interested please head on over to my etsy store for a look see.
As for which one is my favourite, hmmmmmm. It would have to be the bunny boy or maybe even the mousey girl.
