I bought some new ribbon from ebay, one has Owls printed on, and the other has Russian Dolls printed on. I am very pleased with both, and the fact that the seller also enclosed an owl button and a Russian Doll button as a gift!! This new ribbon inspired me to try and make a felt Russian Doll. I started off by making a broach, which I wore the next day and received positive comments from friends. Then the next day I saw this bag, and felt the print looked a bit russian, so I made another Doll to decorate it. I'm really pleased with how it looks, and think my stitches are neater.
I then made a Keyring using the ribbon I had purchased, I tried basing the colours of the doll on the ribbon!
Need to plan what to try with my owl ribbon......

So my friend Dave texts me wednesday and asks if I could make some keyrings as gifts. Sure no problem, what would you like?
A pig - Ok not made one of them before but I will give it ago.
Charles Darwin - What!!! How do you make Charles Darwin!?!
So using this pic as a basis, as I feel it's an iconic image, I began to make the ideas that formed. First was to replicate this image in a cute way, with a Tortoise instead of the hat, as he studied Totoises on the Galapagos islands. But after consulting with Dave, I went for the classic image with a Galapagos lizard sat on the hat.
Dave seemed pleased with the pics, so they have been parcelled up and are on route.
I have no idea how these pics are going to post!! Probably in the wrong order! Lol

In other Good news, our local team won! 2-1, and local lad Jason Walker scored the winning goal! Everyone was very pleased, and I received texts stating that my Bluebirds had brought luck, now I don't like to be big headed but...... I WON THEM THE MATCH!!! Lol!!
So in thought of this, I thought I would prepare for the World Cup by making this Patriotic Lion Broach!

My first blog, and may potentially be the loneliest blog, as I don't really know how to get people to follow you, or if anyone will be interested! If not, hello online diary! Lol!!
Anyway, I have recently started making some little cute things, so any feedback is welcome. I will add pics as I create! This little guy I made for my dad, he's kinda based on our dog.
