Crafting Time- Finally!
Have been managing to find some time for crafting, between the nappy changes and feeding. This is a mobile that my Auntie Di knitted the creatures for, and I turned it into a mobile for above Stevie's change table. She likes to look at this because it's got nice bright colours and contrast.
The patterns were from hansigurumi's etsy shop. There are some more awesome patterns there that I'd love such as these spiders that really do gross me out and make my skin crawl, but would be a perfect gift for my Mum, who I think is slightly evil as she loves spiders and horror movies. Check out the fangs on them! Urgh! I can't believe how out of control my spider fear is if I get goosebumps from knitted softie ones!
So I kinda took the idea of making the mobile up from this Blabla mobile. I liked the look of how the knitted theme was continued in the make up of the whole mobile.
The last photo is a works-in-progress shot of some purses that I have started making that will be eventually for sale in one of the places that you can find my stuff. Oh yeah, and one of these places, Georgie Love has a fantastical new website. It looks great, have a look and see so for yourself :)
Coming soon: more Stevie photos, a published crafty book announcement, and a new print for the reopening of my etsy shop.
