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.

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)
