Another birthday






For our eldest' birthday recently, I made another black cat.
A different one this time! It was supposed to be a cushion, but turned out to be a sort of softie in the end. I also made a face (carrot)cake for her. Decorated with liquorice and her fave sweetie bananas. It was one of the most basic cakes I've made - really quick! And it sort of looks like her. She is having an amazing year, and is probably the happiest she has ever been at a school. (and she's been to a few!)xx

New release : little Frida faces






Combining free motion sewing, vintage fabrics and Frida Kahlo.
These have to be one of the most enjoyable (yet time consuming) 
things that I make! There are now a variety of new boxed Frida
 brooches in my Etsy store here. They all turn out very differently,
 as it is very hard to sew so small and try to get them the same!xx

Little Frida











Some new little Frida Kahlo sewn face brooches are on the way!
They are all one of a kind as they are sewn free hand.
Any shops wanting to order some before Frida's birthday on July 6

New dolls in store!











I've been spending alot of time on these dolls! Its taken so long to make decisions on fabric, hair etc as well as all the handsewing! They are available over on Etsy here.xx

I am able to take on some custom made dolls if you were thinking about getting one made. I know its a big decision to cut into sentimental clothes/items, they can also be made from my own fabrics. It just takes a few emails to sort out colours, and discuss ideas!

Working on :


















I've been spending alot of time on the next release of dolls.
There is alot of handsewing and little details that take time.
They will hopefully be in the shop next week!

I've also been working on some new eye brooches, as they were nearly sold out.
This time I've made both the left eye and right eyes, in blue and green.
They are fully thread drawn this time, with no fabric paint.
(though a little eye shadow can be added if you like!)xx
