Love Monsters

Thanks for those of you who voted for me, alas, I did not win. The knitted boob and the clanger took joint first, but I really enjoyed making the doll and her little outfit. It has reaffirmed my desire to make felt clothing, I'd love a coat like the one the doll modeled and it wasn't too complicated to make, I just don't have a table big enough. Maybe in summer I will be able to have a go out on the lawn, get the kids to help me with the rolling. Until summer I'll just have to make do with making coats for dolls. My daughter was quite taken with the doll and wants me to make her one, at first she wanted it to look like fleabag monkey face, but has since changed her mind and would prefer a princess peach look a like (my kids are a little addicted to Mario driving game wii)! She drew a design last night for me to work to (see I'm teaching her well), but I think she's keen to make the accessories herself....watch this space!

Thinking ahead to Valentine's day I've made a few Love Monsters, they're similar to my mini monster pincushions, but each one is sporting a little heart, they can be given as a token of love, or used as place to keep your pins handy.This cheeky bunch are reeking havok in my Folksy shop, but I'll be making more soon and will put some in the etsy shop as well.

love your mini monster pincushions. they're fab. Great idea of sewing your flowers onto the pot your bought. Maybe we should collaborate if it turns out well!
