Sneaky Peek at some Dinosaur Fun!

I have been working on some new dinosaur print designs - it has taken me a while to decide on styling and colours but they are finally taking shape. You can see a section of the first two - a diplodocus and a t-rex here - I have still to finish work on two further designs to go with these - a stegosaur and a triceratops.

from line drawing to finished design

I am supposed to be working on a new project but have managed to get distracted by the following design that I drew a while ago and it just felt like the right time to put it together - here is the line drawing and the nearly completed design.

Bits and Pieces

So far so good - I have started putting all the bits and pieces together to sell from my Etsy shop.  I need to do some product shots and work out how to load things up to Etsy - hopefully it's not too complicated!  Watch this space!

Sewing Cushions and Toys

Today has been a fun day of making/sewing bits and pieces in view of eventually selling them online.  I am really happy with the end result.  They are better than I could have ever anticipated (well I think they are!!)

Here they are all finished!!

the bits carefully cut out ready to be sewn together (I still need to make the elephant)


tabby cat toy

I'm very happy with the end result.

Cushions and Toys!

Very excited - my long awaited material samples from Spoonflower have finally arrived! They are of cushions and toys that I am planning to make and sell through my Etsy shop (which will be opening again soon).  I was a bit worried about the colours but they have turned out perfectly - I am very pleased.  Now all I need to do is sew the bits together - I will try and remember to post my sewing progress - watch this space!

More Elephants!

More elephants - turns out I am slightly obsessed about elephants too! - here are a few card designs I did a while ago. This colour palette is one of my favourites - mixing bright and muted colours give the designs a slightly vintage feel.
