Spring Pixies

Hello friends!  Are you noticing the signs of spring yet?  It seems like we've had an extra long winter this year with lots of grey, dreary, wet days here on the West Coast of Canada!  But, we've had a couple of sunny days this week and it really amazes me at how much more creative and energetic I feel when the weather starts warming up!  I've been busy with a few new pixies this week - they're very similar to the Pocket Pixies, but I've designed little Beanie hats with animal ears for them.  So, these are the new Beanie Belle Pixies, and they'll be available later today in my shop.  I'm wondering if I should make this pattern available and would love to hear what you think!

Now that the Pixies are done, I'm starting on a new project that I'm quite excited about!  I have an idea in my head that is based on a circus theme.  It involves a trio of animals, the first being a little dog that I'm working on right now.  His name is Dandy and I envision him in a colourful ruffle collar, a clown's hat and a ball.  The second will be an elephant wearing a tutu and I'm still trying to figure out the third. 


Wishing you all a beautiful weekend:)


  1. so cute, love the beenies, I want one with kitty ears LOL

  2. I love them! I'm partial to the one with bunny ears, but like them all. :)

  3. Really cute little dolls... and I understand about your stuff taking up so much room.

  4. I always like everything you make! Your dolls and animals have such sweet little faces. Have a wonderful weekend:)

  5. Your Beanie Belle Pixies are the cutest, Shelly. Here's a thought, maybe you could offer the beanie cap pattern for the Pixies here on your blog. But however you do it, it would be greatly appreciated (especially by your Pixie admirers!)


  6. Thanks Maggie and Dawn!

    Beth, that is such a lovely idea, but I'm unsure of how to do that and any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated!!

  7. Truly small cuties!
