This Cross-stitch was made for my friend Heidi for being truly awesome! I was keen to stitch a few more 80's game characters so I decided on Tetris or Pac-Man. I was inspired by a Pac-Man image I found online so I gave it a go. The colours look fantastic on the black background...I just wish I could have found some black Aida Cloth to use rather than stitching it. Heidi had a frame that was the right size and matched the blue perfectly which was great! (Height - 9.5cm)

SEAMPUNK: LP Record - The Redondos

I was so excited to make this soft 'LP Record' for my friend Tammy for her birthday! I thought it would be nice to personalise it with a song I know is really special to her. I had trouble stitching the band name and song title on the red label so I handed it over to my amazingly talented friend Heidi who worked her usual magic and completed it and a fantastic red sleeve in no time at all...Thank You for your awesome work on yet another fun collaborative project.

This Cross-stitch was made for Tania and Duncan's new baby Finlay. The lettering was sourced from a fantastic Leisure Arts book 'Alphabets Galore' which has really interesting alphabet designs in it. I thought the balloon alphabet would be perfect for this special celebration! (Height - 12.5cm)

FELT: Cupcake, Muffin & 'Iced VoVo' Biscuit

These tiny Felt sweet treats were also made for Clementine so she could enjoy her own picnic at her birthday party in the park. We wrapped her picnic lunch in a small table cloth and gave it to her in a gift basket. It was fun decorating the Cupcake and Muffin, but I really enjoyed sewing the the coconut sprinkles on the 'Iced VoVo' Biscuit. Is there anything that can't be made from felt? (Height - 6cm)

FELT: Salad Sandwich

This medium sized Felt Salad Sandwich was made for Clementine for her 3rd birthday. It was a fun collaborative effort with my crafty friend Heidi...Thank You for your fantastic ideas and sewing most of this one. We thought we should make it a practical gift so we joined the slices of bread together and added a strap so she can use it as a handbag and put the salad pieces back inside. We hope it encourages her to eat salad! (Height - 20cm)

These small Felt Jungle Animals were made for a Mobile for Rachel & Jim's new baby Owen. They have a jungle theme in their baby room so I think this will match well. Thank You Abbie for inspiring me to make these tiny hand stitched characters...I might make a few more soon! (Height - 14cm & 6cm)

CROSS-STITCH: Super Mario Bros. Mushroom & Block

This Cross-stitch was also made for Kate and Terry's new baby Oliver as a matchig pair. The Nintendo and Sega game characters really lend themselves well to cross-stitch as they are made up of tiny coloured blocks. I'm sure I will make more of these individual designs in the future...TBC. A big Thank You to my good friend Heidi for giving me the inspiration to start this project and also helping me finish them.

CROSS-STITCH: Super Mario Bros. Cloud

This Cross-stitch was made for my friend Kate's new baby Lola. I hope she grows up to love buttons just as much as her sister does.

I really like the bright happy colours and the pins! (Height - 12cm)

These tiny Felt Christmas Tree decorations were made for 2 lovely ladies Florence and Katie. Florence kindly passed on a small bag of craft supplies to my work friend Katie to give me.

SOFTIES: Scattered Flowers Pincushion - Pink

This tiny Softie was made because I really needed a pincushion of my own. I was using a rejected snout from a Sock Monkey with a few old rusted pins in it and it just wasn't working for me. I can fit many more pins in this little gem! (Height - 8cm)

SOFTIES: Beets the Rabbit - Blue & Brown Corduroy

This medium sized soft toy was a fun collaborative effort. Meet Beets Elbert! We thought he would be a 'Jelly Bean' shape but he turned out an 'L' shape. We had to give him huge white teeth and really long ears. (Height - 36cm)
