Gathered by Mollie Makes

I really enjoy working with the lovely people from Mollie Makes magazine; I have contributed to a handful of commissions now.  Here is a take-away coffee cup cosy!! (Not sure I would use one myself, but hey-ho...)

Getting Personal!

I am continuing to make custom orders for people.  Here are some orders I have made in the past two days...


Retro Christmas Baubles for Mollie Makes

The December issue of Mollie Makes has some lovely projects and inspiring ideas; including a 'how to' make by myself.  Have already met a couple of people who said they are making some up!  Thanks...

Custom Couple

Some lovely friends of ours celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary a few weeks agoI thought they might appreciate a 'Dolly Box' of the two of them.  I also printed their three boys names around the edge; and made their little hands with velcro attached, so they can hold hands (or not!)

Mr Dolly Box

I will be making more 'boy' dollies in a box.  It's only fair is n't it; why should the girls get all the fun...!  I think he could be called Frank, and I think he might like Lindy Hopping in his spare time.


Dear Deer

A woodland friend for Mr Fox...

Fantastic Mr. Fox

I have been busy making some wintery hanging creatures; this is Mr. Fox.  I think he looks a bit sneaky...

I have been doing some personalised cushions recently and got the idea into my head that I wanted one of my chihuahua (now sadly departed) Cookie!  I have to say this is just like her; a little less moulting and 'accidents' though...

You're a Doll!

I am planning on making more 'Dolly Boxes'; people have always really liked them.  My husband has very kindly offered to make the box-bit!!  They are a little 'rustic', but I think they do the job!  Appendage, my stockist in Brighton, has given the thumbs up, so I shall crack on and make more... mmm, now to work on the husband!

Bon Voyage...

Have made a selection of Vacation Folk canvas' which will be winging their way to Appendage in Brighton.  I have really enjoyed making these funny little characters!  I think they are getting me into holiday mode...


Personalised Embroideries

I have been working on producing personalised embroideries of people's families.  Here are a few examples...

You Smell!

Some more from my lavender bag collection; this time for the gentleman in your life...

Bangle Mad!

I seem to of gone 'bangle mad', and can't stop buying old bangles!  Some are bakelite, some celluloid, some raffia and some great 1980's too.  I came across more be-bangled ladies, courtesy of Advanced Style blog.  The last picture is queen of accessories and all round amazing woman, Nancy Cunard...

I have had a lot of fun making these little Vacation Folk canvas'.  They remind me a bit of Roman Holiday and Rockabilly girls!  I am selling these at an open house in sunny Brighton as part of the festival and also at the lovely shop Appendage, also in Brighton.
