< Go Back

yes yes i know, i have made OOOOODLES of baby cards the last couple of years (having babies must be in fashion or something?)

as you might know,i  am doing the lewes artwave open studios this year, and i am making hand made illustrated cards to sell. they do look cute….

at last have packaged up my dolleebee and mister dolleebee snippysew sets.
i am going to be doing the lewes ARTWAVE in august this year where i will be showcasing all my wonkybutton wares and the etsy shop will be open in the autumn yip yip!
in these little stripy bags are the bits of ribbon and elastic that you need to make your dolleebees

here is the protostype of mr hooty toot
a snippysew kit that i will be selling in my wonkybutton etsy shop later in the year
he is full of 2.5kg of rice!
i like his shape- but am going to ammend colours and textures and pattern somewhat
and plan to add a sew on beak and add some teddybear style glass eyes for a nice detail…


.this one is a real easy peasy one to make…

Cut out both the pieces keeping neatly to the outside cutting line
Pin both pieces together with the printed side facing inwards.

Sew around the edge keeping to the printed line as best you can (you can see this through the fabric). Makesure to leave the flat space in between the two ears unsewn . (You will need to leave this open to be able to turn the right way and stuff later).

Carefully snip around the curved edges of  the seam (making sure not to cut into the sewn line). 

This will give a better finish and prevents bunching around the seam when you turn it inside out.

Turn the Pencil Skirt Kitty the right way around and stuff.

Hand sew up the opening.

and here she is… Miss Pencil Skirt Kitty.

She is a bit of an oddity- maybe thinking she is too spindly for a nice big fat comfy cushion, 
And she looks a bit like a big spanner… not sure if i will go full steam ahead with this one for my etsy shop.
Hmm… but maybe she would be good with a tv remote pocket on her skirt (it would be exactly the right shape for that). A tv remote storing cushion… too gimmicky or a brain wave?

oops, forgot to put this up yesterday.

was hard to take a good shot as weather grotty and grey and flappy.

thanks for all nice comments…much appreciated all
