It's bunny time....

This weekend I worked on this bunny girl.

She turned out soooo cute that I couldn't wait until she has all her clothes

to show some pictures of her.

She is sooo soft and cuddly and full of soft wool.

 

Look at that face!!!!!

Can you tell I'm in love?

Right now she is spending a lot of time with me and I will have to put some thought into if I want to keep her or let her go to a new home...

 
Hmmm.......We'll see

Bunny and owl


This custom pair is going on a big trip to the other side of the world.
They are going all the way to Australia. 


I love the color combination the customer choose for the bunny.
Since the eyes would be very dark and kind of hard to see on the dark brown
I thought it would be nice to have a lighter brown around them as a contrast.

I like it a lot. What do you think? 


The owl turned out very sweet as well.
 I like using some darker fabrics . They make the colors stand out more.

Custom Pirates and Ninja's

My latest custom order has been for little pirate sister and brothers and little ninja's. For this order the customer wanted bags with drawstrings so I came up with bags with the same pirate fabric, but different top edges so that the boys know which one belongs to them.  


 Little pocket pirates are just so much fun to make.


I can just imagine the adventures they will have together.


With the pirates I also made them these two ninja's


Gosh it has been a long time since I made ninja's.
Maybe I should make some more....... 


Little custom grandma pocket doll

This little pocket doll was a very special custom order. She is a grandma and hopefully she can help a little girl get over her big loss.
Dolls like that can be tricky. 
You want to get it right and so you put a lot of thought into it. I'm so honoured that I was able to create what the customer had in mind even without a visual. 

None of the hair types I used on pocket dolls before made sense for this oneuntil I thought of this curly mohair. It turned out just perfect.


The little jacket is made from a recycled wool sweater and has embroidered edges and a few French knots .

I have to say I'm just in love with this little doll !




My latest creations



Just finished this puppy blanky.
With all the bunnies lately it was time for a puppy again.  :)
You can find this one in my Etsy shop



This lamb was a custom order I also just finished. 
With Easter around the corner I think some more lambs are coming my way. 


These logs,tree stump and leaves are also a custom order for the family that got the group of mushrooms lately.
Can you imagine how much fun it would be to get your imagination going when you play with these forest toys?

Custom Mushrooms



I don't think I have shown you this bunch of mushrooms I made for a customer. They range in size from about 5 to 10 inches (about 13-26 cm)
all have heavy bottoms and can stand alone. I make them with and without the heavy bottom.It's not fall anymore I know, but to me there's no season for mushrooms. I just love these mushrooms all year round.Especially dotted mushrooms!Have you seen the other kind I make?Different colors and shapes and sizes 


I also make other nature items like these...


A custom pocket doll set....

Look at these 2 cuties!
They were a custom order for a very patient lady.

Oh those sweet little faces.

I have not done this kind of hair due in a long time and still like it .

He's so cute! I want to make a big version of him.

The open hair is very cute, but it's very time consuming because it's such a small wig.
Oh, but I love that little bed head!  

Well this was a fun set to make and I hope the little ones that will play with them have a ton of 
fun with them too.

2013 Review

I can't believe 2013 is over and done with!
It has been an exciting and busy year for my little creative business.
Selling my creations on the local market on Saturdays has been a wonderful endeavour for me and I loved meeting customers and making new friends.
I didn't sell on any type of market for at least 10 years so it was a bit scary, but now I feel I got the routine down. At first I was scared that I would not be able to make enough during the week since I was also still working my day job, but it all worked out.  
My Etsy shop has of course also been a big part of my business. 
So this year I wanted to see what I actually made , and here are some mosaics with my creations from 2013.
Sadly I missed taking a bunch of pictures of items I sold on the market 
because I would finish them the night before and never got a chance .
Regardless I'm quiet impressed of what I've accomplished !
Thank you to everyone who has been a part of this wonderful journey.
Oh, I also reached 1000 likes( now 1080) on my facebook page!
That's HUGE for me ! Honest!!!!
Love you all!!
:)
So here as promised the collections:





 and my one and only full size doll.....
Celeste!  


Thank you again for your support and stay tuned . 
I plan to have a busy year 2014 as well and hope to realize a whole bunch of new ideas.

Happy New Year and all my best wishes to you!
May all your dreams come true!

Pirate time....

I had a custom request for a pirate a few weeks ago and was really looking forward to make him.
I'm happy to introduce to you this little pirate .

 His eye patch can be removed and he can show you his pretty grey eyes.

The cutlass and belt are made from wool felt .

Gosh, I had so much fun making him. 
I need to make more pirates.....
I also made a pirate out fit for his sister doll.
Dress , eye patch and hat.  
:0)

Fall Play....

Fall is here and it's beautiful!
Kids love to play outside in the leaves and run through the woods.
Why not bring some of that magic inside in form of some soft  safe ,natural leaves, mushrooms, logs and tree stumps?


If you are using them as a play set , decoration or for a nature table.


 With little gnomes ......



 .....or for your dolls to play with.

The possibilities for your imagination are endless.

Did you know the mushrooms come in different sizes and also with a heavy bottom so that they can stand?


My play log has been featured on the Little Gatherer
