Still having fun sewing and playing!

Phew! Since my last blog post I've made a lot of mermaids! My next challenge is a beautiful dress-up rag doll I found in a fabulous book called "Stitched Toys" by Kate Haxell.

Before I start that one, though, I thought I'd share a few other little bits and pieces I've made recently.
This is a doll I've made to send to an organisation in Africa which then gives them to local children. It's an amazing organisation called The Uthando Project, and you can find out all about them and the amazing work they do at their WEBSITE.


One of my first projects was to make these teensy felt fairies and then make them little houses. My daughter plays with these for hours on end, and has demanded more fairies, an elf, a gnome and a village shop to go with them, so it looks like I'll be hitting the felt shops soon!


I just love this next one - I have a thing for elephants! This is a rice and lavender filled heat pack I made for my mum for her birthday a few weeks ago.



Below is another one of my early creations, made from a free pattern by Mimi Kirchner at the wonderful Purl Bee, and it can be found HERE if you'd like to give it a go. As I said, it's one of my earlier efforts, when I was still seriously struggling with faces, hence her rather sneering face, but I loved making her anyway!


So there you have it, a few of the little things that have been keeping me out of trouble (mostly) recently. Thanks for having a look!
