here is a sample of my lovely puddle machine (aka cloud) mobile that i might sell at my open house in august. i just need to rebalance the raindrops as they are not pleasing me in this configuration. other than that…. i like it.

a bird, a girl, a peacock and a lion walk into a pub…
… i mean, no, they don’t walk into a pub, they are just new brooch samples.
have been tweaked a little since this stage but thought i would share- cos i am just that kind a gal x

brooches in stiu

here are some quick broach designs i did which i will hopefully make and sell in my etsy wonkybutton shop. they will be made from lasercut perspex. very exciting indeedy oh yes.
i hope you like the detail… particularly the cats bottom (hoping that is not too silly, i would wear it if that counts for anything)

 i promise you i am not being idle… look, stampy stickers (bringing out my role playing retro librarian tendancies!)

 in these little stripy bags are squeakers and bells to put in the McBabbys as part of their snippysew craft kits that i will sell.

here are the celophaned up to the eyeballed McBabbies

and  here are the russian dilly dolllies.
even though they are packaged up- i still need to sort out their instruction postycards.
it has all been a little frustrating as i have been having lots of production hitches (that i am still in the process of resolving)… crikey all soooo time consuming. am trying to keep focused on the bigger picture but it is hard when you are juggling lots of balls and you don’t even like jugglers.

another prototype for my wonkybutton etsy shop.
this time a cushion.
quite like it (although i haven’t yet finished the button hole detail on the back….. just waiting for a mo to get to the button shop (ha ha any excuse!)

here is mister dolleebee in his superhero outfit

 and here he is in his evening wear.
note the superhero cape is turned around and used to make his smart bowtie front.
also note that the masked eyes peek in a different direction!

i wasn’t quite happy with his belly ballooning pantaloons so have modified the design.
i guess this is one reason why it is taking me ages to refine and get right my wonkybutton etsy shop products.
(that and the fact that i am really busy with my books… all good but i wish i had some ompalumpas)
nearly there though- hope it will be worth it!

and here is misterdolleebee with dolleebee in the rocking chair.
i think you will agree that they sure make a swell couple.

this is my prototype dolleebee (part time superhero, part time groovy ragdoll)
i have made a few tweaks to this sample version (as spindly legs and arms a bit tricky and head a bit topheavy).
but all in all i love her and she makes me smile.
she will be a wonkybutton snippysew available in my soon to be etsy shop (will keep you posted).
