Giraffe Toy.....

Morning all, sorry that I've been absent for a while, week has flown by, and have had my eldest home for a few have been unable to get to my computer.

I will try and catch up with everyone's blog over the weekend.

Here is another soft toy that I've made. Again the pattern is from "knittingbypost". There should have been large knitted circles on his body, but I didn't like the look of them, so instead, I have used a brown promarker to make the dots.

 Hope you have a great bank holiday weekend. xx

 Morning all, a quick blog today. This is the fox that I managed to complete at 10pm on Friday night, and which I sold on Saturday morning !!
 The pattern is from Knittingbypost. It was supposed to be a PJ case, but like the hippo, I made it into a soft toy.
I will try and knit another one soon !!

I'm doing a craft fair this morning, so will have to see what I've got left in stock to sell LOL !! I will have to be extra speedy in knitting !

Have a good day and see you again very soon.

V W Cushion & Candle......

 Morning all, I'm still making for Father's day, and although I've made this cushion before, I thought I would do a candle to match.
I got the image from goggle. It's just the outline, so I can print it off and colour it in whenever I want to change the colour scheme.

As to the craft fair yesterday.......I did rather well, the hippo sold, as well as 2 candles, the knitted cushion with the buttons on and a fox (which I'll show you tomorrow).

Quite busy throughout the day, which made the time go fast. Only started to quieten down later in the afternoon.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend. xx

Pink Hippo.....

Morning all, another start to the weekend...

I'm doing a craft fair this morning in a Church. A new venue for me, so let's hope there will be loads of customers...

I've made this hippo, which should be a PJ case, into a soft toy, by filling the body part.
Went to Excel on Thursday, for the craft fair, and wasn't impressed. Less stalls each time I go there and nothing new to see. A lot of the stands were exhibition displays, rather than shops. I don't know if Excel is too expensive, or whether it's because we all buy on line nowadays.

It's a good job that I get the tickets sent to me for free, as I don't think I would go if I had to pay.

Will let you know how I get on with the craft fair tomorrow. x

Four Candles....Fork Handles..... 

 Morning all, I apologise for the "Two Ronnies" sketch reference...., especially as I've only 3 candles.....but for some reason when ever I see candles, I'm always reminded of that sketch.

Anyway, enough of silliness....Here are 3 candles that I've decorated. The owl and camper van were just printed onto ordinary, cheap copier paper, and the butterfly one is a serviette.
 This lovely image I got from Google. Once melted into the candle, I've added pearl drops to his eyes, and a ribbon across the bottom and top.
 This serviette also has an embossed pattern, which looks really good on the candle. I cut 3 butterflies out and stuck onto card, and then cut them out again and stuck them onto the candle, matching the butterfly image. I've only added ribbon across the bottom.

And finally, this camper Van. I went onto google (great source for images) and found the outline of the van. This I printed onto copier paper and then coloured in, using my promarkers. I will do another one in red asap.

I'm off to Excel London today for the craft show. Will let you know what I buy later. 

Enjoy the rest of your day, and thanks for stopping by. xx

Father's Day Chocolate Bars....

 Morning all, well a short week this week for most of you. Hope you all enjoyed your bank holiday weekend. I didn't do anything out of the ordinary....but it was just nice not to have to go anywhere and do things LOL !!! (I'm a stay at home girlie !!)

I decide to re-decorate the chocolate bars left over from Mother's Day and Easter to become Father's Day gifts !!!

 I found some suitable papers for men to wrap around the chocolate, and then in my stamps I found a couple of Father's Day ones that I had forgotten that I had (like we all do LOL !!).
If I don' sell these my Father's day, I guess I have to give them to my lot I think I should get fresher ones ready for Christmas !!!!

Have a great day. xx

Knitted Cushion.....

 Morning all, a bit late with the blog today.....but it's a bank holiday and I've had a lie in this morning LOL !!

Hope your bank holiday Monday is going great so far, a little cloudy and overcast here in Kent, but hopefully the sun will shine through later.

A while ago, a friend of mine, gave me some magazines that she didn't want anymore. Among the patterns was this one.

I couldn't wait to knit this, as I fell in love with the design. I've knitted it in a cotton type wool. The size is 40 x 40 cms. The small buttons are from docrafts. They were on sale when I went to the Farnborough craft fair a while ago.
 I'm going to take it along to my craft fairs to sell, but to be honest, I don't mind if I don't sell it, as I would keep it myself.
Thanks for popping by, enjoy the rest of your day. xx
