Pocket Pixies - Pansy, Marigold and Petunia

Well, it's been a busy week again and I've just finished up the last two Pocket Pixies.  Marigold and Petunia have been adopted and will be travelling to their new home tomorrow.  I know they're excited to meet their new mom and all the other sweet dolls she collects!  Pansy is patiently waiting and hoping to win the heart of someone really special too!


I gotta say that these little dolls were sooo much fun to make!  The pattern will be available soon and I think I'll have a GIVEAWAY for a few of the patterns!  Please check back soon for info!!



Pansy wears a cherry pink dress in hand woven felt with teeny buttons and appliqued pocket.  A beaded lace trim accents her hem.  Just love the colour of her hair!!  I think it's my fave!  Her hair has been needle felted onto her head and can be gently styled.

















I gave Marigold a cute little bob and used a juicy orange organic wool for her hair.  She's dressed in a robins egg blue dress which I've accented with teeny orange buttons and a beaded lace trim.



















Each Pocket Pixie is entirely hand stitiched and measures 7 inches tall.

Pocket Pixie - Petunia

Just wanted to share a new project I've been working on this week.  I wanted to create an easy to make doll pattern made from felt that would appeal to any level of sewer.  This is Petunia, the first of the Pocket Pixies!  She measures about 7 inches tall and is completely hand sewn.  I've needle felted her hair (an organic wool) right onto her head and her dress and shoes are removable.


Hope you like her!  As soon as her pattern is ready, it'll be available in my shop:  http://www.etsy.com/shop/Gingermelon

Fluff and Wasabi

Goodness me, how time flies!  Didn't realize that it's been over two weeks since I've posted anything!  Hope you all had a wonderful LOVE day!

I recently completed two mohair Petal Bears.  The first was a custom order for an anime kitten.  Her name is Fluff and she has a pet bird named Mavis.  The second, an anime elephant named Wasabi.



Fluff is made from cream and pink long pile mohair and she wears a pink and white ruffle about her neck with a pretty beaded flower.  Mavis is made from felt and I've beaded and embroidered her tiny body.  She can sit and stand and turn her head from side to side.
Pea green and cream mohair were used to create Wasabi. She wears a delicate lace scarf with a vintage button and a rusty bell.  Available in my shop for adoption.

Hope you all have a wonderful week:)
