Peek-a-Boo Pals

 It's always such a joy to get a huge project out of the way!  I have felt like a hermit for the past week or so whilst writing up my newest patterns and it feels so great to finally have them all illustrated and ready to share with you!  I just want to say a big Thank You to Kim Leavens who inspired me to call these little cuties 'Peek-a-Boo Pals'!

The pdf patterns are now available in most of my shops and very soon, you'll be able to purchase them as kits as well.  Each kit will include a pattern booklet tucked into a re-sealable plastic sleeve, along with the felts and ribbon.  You will need to supply your own polyfil, embroidery thread and a disappearing ink pen. 

I am hoping to devote some of my time to making a few ready-made things for my shop again.  As much as I enjoy designing patterns, I really miss making things for others to enjoy:)  So, when I do have some items, I'll post an announcement to my facebook page with the details of when I'll be listing them - usually I like to give a day's notice - and then it will be a first come, first serve basis.  I am not able to take on custom orders as I still have a lot on the go, so I hope you'll understand. 

Enjoy the rest of your week:)

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to all my dear Mum friends!  I hope that each of you is having a very special day!  I thought it would be a great day to have a little sale in my shop for those who'd like to spoil themselves with some patterns, felt, etc, so if you're thinking of treating yourself, please use the coupon code:  HAPPYMUMSDAY to receive 20% off everything in my shop!

I've also been working on a new collection of dolls lately and will be getting ready to write up the patterns for them within the next week.  These will be available as regular PDF patterns, as well as in pattern kits which will include a pattern booklet and the felt/ ribbon needed to make one.

I have not decided on a name for this collection and would love to hear from you if you have any suggestions! 

Wishing you all a very special day,
