Custom Christmas Stocking

Here is what I have been working on this week. A custom stocking for a little boy in Canada.  It is lined with wadding and soft polka dot fabric- lovely and soft for little hands to dive into. Complete with monkey applique and personal embroidered message on the reverse. Almost complete... Just needs the top stitching and a hook. Final pictures to come.

Christmas Jingle-Baubles for Your Tree

Here are some stuffed Christmas tree decorations which I have been working on this week. Made from felt with shisha mirrors and sequins/beads, they add a touch of handmade charm to Christmas.
Each tree ornament has 4 sides, so not only do they look great from all angles but they also reflect the colourful Christmas tree lights. A treat for the eyes and the ears- each has two small bells attached to the bottom. 

Available in my etsy shop- more items coming soon! Hope you like them!

New Work

Finally had a day bright enough to photograph my new custom doll. I call him Lionel. Made from both new and recycled fabrics, covered with hand embroidery and applique and comes complete with handmade scarf, felt flower and custom hand embroidered message. His bendy knees mean that he is great at dancing.
Loved creating him...

Some Commissioned Work in Progress

I have a few different commissioned pieces to work on at the moment. Both will include personal hand-stitched messages as written by the buyer. Any of my pieces can have an embroidered message added or custom dolls can be created including any additions. On Lionel the Lion I included a Happy Birthday applique, the birthday girls favourite pets in cross stitch were also stitched onto the doll.Applique section using lots of bits and pieces for a cluttered look, representing a childhood of memories and a celebration of becoming an adult.

Relocation Relocation!

We have decided to move to the USA! My husband is from Columbus, Indiana and we have just bought a house there. So I will be busy moving and getting used to the new lifestyle for a while. I'll be sure to keep you all posted on my interior projects as we do-up the new house and any new characters that pop up along the way. Lots of work will become available to buy worldwide on Etsy this Winter and you can always get in touch if you see something you like or wish to commission a piece. Currently working on new more personal commissioned pieces for birthdays and weddings. More on them soon!
