hand and machine stitched brooches

Hi, phew what a day...just listed a few of these hot off the sewing machine brooches in my etsy shop..go have a look lots more detailed photo's there.
Thank you to my partners gorgeous niece for doing a spot of modeling for me this morning

And......
Meet Little Bones...the final doll in ADO's Traveling Doll Project...Little Bones was made by Kailee of SophiaLaLa..LB then traveled to Susie Mcmahon in North West Tasmania..Susie painted her face, hands and feet plus gave her an awesome hair do! LB then traveled to me where I made her snazzy outfit!...LB is now heading back to Kailee's place in Western Australia...what a journey...and remember you can read more about the Traveling Doll Project here!

Oh and I've been making bears and dolls too...


Not finished yet some still need their coffee! Made from a friend old camel hair coat!
The pattern is by Sweet Meadow Farm I adjusted the legs and arms to curve a bit more and made the legs button jointed...I'm working at my own bear patterns too!



 Plasticine models waiting for their paper mache layer...which I just might do right now...cheerio !
