Happy New Year!
After the craziness that is the Christmas season, I have had a nice slow start to the year.
I feel funny and weird if I have a complete holiday from making things, so instead of having a sewing vacation, I decided to just make what I felt like, when i felt like it. And here are some of the things that I made:
A rather Edwardian frog peddling ice creams, to accompany a frog I made on a whim late last year:
As usual, whenever I go into this ‘make-what-I-like’ mode, Harry Potter creeps in somewhere:
Luna & Gryff! Inspired from quite obvious sources. I particularly like Luna’s Ravenclaw jumpsuit and would like one for myself (even though deep down I know I would be Hufflepuff). I am a bit taken with lions at the moment, and also made this sunny lion-face chain brooch which will be going in to the made-to-order section of my shop:
+ a lion face gocco ->
And then, most likely inspired by the extreme heat we have had in Melbourne this past week, I made a bunch of tiny felt ice creams –>
+ an ice cream gocco!
All these things will be going in my Etsy store tomorrow, Friday the 17th of January at 9am AEST.
So, that was my start to the year! I hope you have had a fun one, too.
