the little things


I'm focusing on little things...

like little makes to sell at the PTA fair that is THIS Friday (gulp)

So I made a few of these little coin trays:



And am working on these little dolls:



They just need to be stuffed. I'm thinking they'd be cute on a keychain to hang off a bag or something?!



I was so inspired when I saw the incredible Liberty skittle dolls Jo made and then my mum bought me this magazine:


So I used the basic template from Craftseller and then made a very simple version and attached a ribbon loop. 
Even my son seems to love them so hopefully they'll sell!

I'm still working on my bear paw blocks too:



Then there's those other little things that brighten up your day. The baby is poorly and we've had a hard time of late so when I heard that unmistakeable 'thud' of a package through the door (and don't we all just know when it's fabric?!) I was nursing her and thinking 'I know I've not ordered anything, what could that be?'. Nothing could have surprised me more. The wonderful and very generous Hydee had sent me some gorgeous Hope Valley as a thank you for a package I sent her recently. Now I have to point out I sent her a little bit of fabric and a magazine and she sent me LOADS of this:


So a huge, huge thank you to Hydee for bringing a huge smile to my face.
I'm off to dream about what to make with it!

  5. Am sure the little dolls will sell really fast. I made something similar in clay a while back and they were very popular. Good luck with it. xCathy

  7. Good luck at the fair. You have some gorgeous things for sale! Those little dolls are adorable and, I think, would also make sweet tree decorations at Christmas. :)

  8. I think your little dolls will sell a treat. Poor you with a sick bubby - that's no good. But that Hydee is a sweetheart, isn't she?! She tells me that you're Lucy the Queen of England, which is now who you are in my mind :-)

  13. So sorry to hear the baby is feeling poorly, that's the hardest part of parenting. Your PTA is so lucky to have you as a parent you are just making such awesome things, I would totally buy one of everything you have made.

  20. I hope the fair is in full swing by now and that the sun has enticed people out to spend money on gorgeous crafty makes rather than just ice creams and goes on the bouncy castle ;o) Hope L is all better and no one else is poorly xx

  22. I love the faces on your dolls! Super cute. I think little things should sell well. Looking forward to hearing the results.

    And I consider the nice piece of my favorite fabric and fun Mollie Makes a very fair trade! Although you weren't looking for one. Excited to see what you dream up for it.
