Cutting + sticking + sewing + baking. My creative life.

Foxy

I was asked to make a cushion out of an old baby tee-shirt for someone to give as a gift to their colleague (apparently they're scared of foxes?!).  I do like upcycling!  I think it turned out great, used a cushion pad from Ikea.Front BackLove Melanie x

A Very Cherry New Year

Gonk Babies – Part Deux

Made more gonk babies!  Dropped off two for my friend's birthday yesterday and just posted the other two to their new home.   The fleecy bits I have left are getting smaller so I think the future gonk babies will be tinier too.  Micro gonk babies?!More gonk love Melanie x
