My Bitchin' Stitchin'

After my first Crafternoon I became very obsessed with making softies and this is the result...

This is my own creation I made up the design myself I call him the cactus monster...

This is finished green Cactus monster

Cactus monster with my first toy face monster....

And now and orange cactus monster :-)

Finished orange cactus monster :-)

Both my cactus monsters with my face monster

Friendly Bunny

Evil Red Bunny

Both the bunnies

All together

At this stage I was leaving pins everywhere and my sister even sat on some so I though it was time to make myself a pin cushion....
so tada...

In the book my friend Anja lent me there was a pattern for these little tea bags that are the size of a tea bag which is so cute. They were difficult to work out but fun to put together.

Tea bags all together...

All my creations together again :-)

Now this is a little elephant I put together for my sister... its not full pattern size and I had a few problems with this material but it came out great and she loves it. :-)

I hope you like my creations so far I love making them....
On my last crafternoon Anja and I went in to the city bough socks and softies pattern books and when home and made sock monkeys.... that will be my next post stay tuned...

On Wednesday the 5th January 2011 I have a Crafternoon with my Friend Anja.
We spent the afternoon Sowing Face Monsters and this is mine.
This is the first time I have ever sowed a softies .....

This is the start I am sowing on the back...

This is it all sown together but inside out.

In the right way but no stuffing

My stuffed Face monster .... douse'nt she look cute with no arms and legs lol

One leg on but not quite in the right place .... we were joking that it kind of looked like she had a big penis.... lol

My friend Anja drawing up her pattern for her zombie face monster.

Two legs thats much better...

And now she has an arm.

Anja sowing her zombie face monster.

And wala my finished face monster... I am so impressed that I was able to make her she is fantastic.....

This was such a fantastic afternoon it was so much fun and I absolutely love my face monster she is awesome... I cant believe I was able to make it...
I have now become obsessed with making softies and there is already another post on them on the way so stay tuned.

I hope to have another crafternoon with Anja soon, to make some sock monkey's this time... :-)

Semaphore Community Market January 2nd 2011

These are some photos from my stall and a few extras from the January 2nd Semaphore Community Market 2011.

They had a few cancellation so I was moved inside and got to bring extra things and spread across two tables. Which was just awesome.
Such a great community market and a great time of year to participate with all the holiday makers coming down. I even had a few Friends Visit me.

There was a little band that played for a few hours at the beginning of the market it was really nice.

and this is TIM.... Hi Tim.... he popped down to stay hi and we roped him in to staying for a while and chat :-).
I had not seen Tim in years it was great catching up.
