SOFTIES: Bunnito the Pirate Bunny

Meet 'Bunnito' the Pirate Bunny! This large soft toy was made for Oliver for his 1st Birthday. My lovely friend Trish gave me a Crafty Creatures magazine which has 25 interesting projects in it and 'Bunnito' was definitely a 'must try'. I love the stripes and polka-dots and his cute pirate accessories. Happy Birthday Oli!! (Height - 50cm)

DESIGN: Dinosaur Bag - Cream Linen

This Dinosaur Bag was made for Maximilian for his 3rd birthday. He had a Hot Rod and Dinosaur themed birthday party so I decided to bake him some dinosaur cookies with blue and green icing and also make him something a bit different...he can carry his collection of dinosaurs around now. Happy Birthday Max!! (Height - 35cm) (Photographer - Heidi)

FELT: Festive Decorations

I have an endless supply of beads, buttons, sequins, ribbons and trimming so I decided to make some tiny Felt Festive Decorations for my family and friends for Christmas. Now I know why people say the end of the year is the 'silly season'...some of us go a little bit mad around that time. I set out to make only a few decorations and I after I gave them all away I did a final count and I made 24! Time flies by when you are a busy bee! (Height - 10cm) 

BUTTONS: Vintage

I bought this little collection of Vintage Buttons from a secondhand store at the Sunshine Coast while on one of our 'Craftaway' adventures last year. I love the colours and textures! I also discovered some beautiful old fabric that was tucked away in a suitcase near the counter that I couldn't resist buying. I had a few projects in mind...TBC.
