I recently added some really cute handmade items to my ETSY SHOP and I thought I would share a little bit about them here.
I started making these little toadstools/mushrooms, and if I do say so myself: they are cute as a button. For these ones I used white silk or satin (from the cutting room floor of a local bridal shop), re-purposed wool (usually from blankets and sweaters) and up-cycled denim. I embroidered flowers on the the tops using all kinds of wools from my yarn stash. These first three were stuffed with poly-fill but I will now be using wool stuffing. They can be found in the TOADSTOOLS section of my shop.
I also finished these hedgehog pincushions. They are made using a variety of colourful quilting cottons and their faces are made from a wool blend. I stuffed them with rice, lavender and wool, and their eyes are plastic buttons. They can be found in my shop under PINCUSHIONS.
PLEASE NOTE: Each of these items is one of a kind, and meant to be used as a decoration, rather than a toy.
