Gingermelon Men

Just had to share the adorable Gingermelon men!

These little guys measure just over 3 inches tall and are made from a wool blend felt.  Each has a hand embroidered face and I've appliqued teensy pink cheeks on beneath their eyes.  Seed beads encircle their 'wrists' and 'ankles' and a pretty bow made from seam binding ties about their necks.  The one in the middle is a brooch and the two on the ends are hanging ornaments.

And here's what they look like on my mini feather tree.  I'm hoping to have the patterns for these little sweeties available this weekend.

  11. Hello there! Thanks for commenting on Good of you to visit, given your heavy production schedule and I'm grateful for your time.

    As for our common background of Johannesburg and Canada - well, the longer I live, the more I realise how small is the world, and especially so the world of Etsy!

    I worked for Anglo American in London first, and then Johannesburg (mainly on the diamonds side)but only stayed in RSA for about 8 months. Made the most of travelling round that lovely country though, and got bitten by the African bug! Would love to go back, but now too wrinkly for such adventures!

    We lived in Alberta, although we emigrated to Victoria, and our daughters spent their summers in BC (Kamloops and around Vancouver, as well as Victoria obviously). The circle seems to have come round completely, as today, I've received an order for Noel, my Christmas Rabbit from a resident of Richmond, BC! As I said, a small world!

    Love these most recent items by the way. All the best. Isobel


Thanks so much for your comments, I love reading what you have to say!
