A Fairy Project!

So, for my daughter's 4th birthday I found this neat pattern from ikatbag.  I've never sewn with plastic canvas before - but hey, I'm keen to give most things a go!

This is how it turned out...

The Toadstool - a.k.a The Fairy House

Checking out their new home
And having a chat

We named them of course...




 And they seem to get on well together

They even have some sparkly decorations inside!

And they like to play peek-a-boo!

Did it go down well?  YES!

It took me a fair while to make, but it was so worth it!  My daughter loved it - so much so I've already had to replace the hair with wool rather than felt.  The felt hair just didn't quite stand up to the attention!

I used cotton drill for the coloured fabrics - and plain old canvas for the outer body, and I'm pretty pleased with the end result.

My First Post

Hello and welcome to my first attempt at a blog.  What is it all about?  Well, me really!  Or more importantly - the things I like doing.  I get such enjoyment out of creating things for my family and friends, and get inspiration from other blogs - so thought maybe, just maybe, someone might get inspired from me :)
