Me and my lovely wife have been working on a big project – our first stop motion video! It took a lot of planning and a bit of learning, and a re-shoot because it wasn’t quite right, but we finally have this amazing video to show you!
Can’t wait any longer to see it? Okay here it is!
So cute right? If you want to meet the stars of the show go here to check them out ^_^
My shop has been having a major overhaul recently as I was getting ready to enter the UK Etsy Awards! Exciting but scary stuff.
I will be posting new items here when I get chance, but if you can’t wait make sure you like my Facebook Page as I’ll be posting them there first!
Lovely to see you today!
Woohoo! I am finally releasing my first amigurumi pattern! I have designed many patterns, but this is the first one I’ve released so I’m very excited!
You can find this pattern HERE on Ravelry!
This is an interactive baby toy that rattles and crinkles! It’s a full step-by-step photo and written pattern, including how to make all the components to make it rattle and crinkle.
The pattern uses basic crochet stitches worked in a continuous spiral. The components to make it rattle and crinkle are quite simple and you can use things from around the house.
Tension isn’t hugely important, but make sure there is no holes between stitches so you can’t see the stuffing, especially as this is a baby toy.
It only uses a small amount of yarn so would be great to use up odd ends!
Finished size – around 7cm/3 inches, not including the hair
Hope you love it as much as I do! ^_^
I have listed a new item – woohoo!
It is made with a gorgeous bamboo cotton yarn that has some amazing benefits! Bamboo is eco-friendly as it requires no chemicals and very little water to grow, and it is one of the fastest growing plants in the world. It also absorbs more carbon dioxide from the air than other plants and releases more oxygen. Bamboo cotton keeps you cool as well as absorbing moisture away from your body. It is also great for allergy-prone and sensitive skin, and is anti-fungal and antibacterial! It is breathable and doesn’t retain odors, meaning less washing! With 100% natural fibers it is a great choice for your little one.
It has a really cute triangle design and comes with one big flower and one small one in any colour! There are 11 flower colour combinations to choose from:
Pinks and purples –
Greens, white and yellow –
You can message me if there isn’t a colour listed and I will try to find a matching yarn for you! Or, if you want a different accessory altogether, say a dinosaur or heart, just message me!
Here’s a close up of the scalloped edge
For the custom fit: Measure all around your child’s head in a full circle across the forehead. If this is for a gift or you can’t measure for any reason, add the age into the message when buying instead and I will base it on averages. However this is not a guaranteed size and I would recommend measuring for a good fit.
You can buy it from my Etsy shop for £8.50, and I ship worldwide
Thank you for visiting today, I hope you like my newest item!

Thought you might like to see some pretty flowers I have made recently :) There are two different sets at the moment, one in luxury/premium yarn which is super soft and quite floppy, and one in standard yarn. The standard yarn is still really pretty though as you can see, and they are slightly bigger.
The luxury yarn is the ones in the background and the top picture, and the standard yarn is the one in the bottom picture.
They are both listed on my shop here
Hope you like them!
I’ve finally opened my first ever Etsy shop! I’d love it if you could check it out :)
Here’s a sneak peak of what you will find there:
I hope you like everything! I currently only ship to the UK as I am trying to find a courier who can ship for much cheaper than the post office is offering! I’d welcome any advice!
Also, my shops facebook page is here if you would like to keep up to date with my shop!
Sorry I don’t seem to be blogging much recently, but I *think* I’m ready to come back!! ^_^ I think I just lost my blogging buzz for a while. Hopefully It’s back now and things can get back to normal!
If anyone has come here after receiving a business card from me or the charity event, welcome! My shop should be opening at the beginning of December :)
Here’s a preview of something I’ve made recently, and I will be posting about soon!
Can you guess what it’s going to be?
I have given great thought to how I want my items to be packaged when I open my shop. One thing I knew – I wanted washi tape!! How things are packaged can influence peoples opinion on your business, and good packaging makes a good first impression and helps you to be more memorable. I wanted to coordinate with my logo and banner image so I chose brown (I will show you everything when we’ve perfected it!) I looked through every site and Etsy store that sold washi tape to find the perfect colour and style, and finally settled on this one.
The inside packaging
Good first impressions, simple yet cute!
Cute! Looks like a candle :)
This pretty packaging instantly makes it a great gift idea!
What do you think? I love them!
The shop, Pretty Tape from Etsy, has a great selection of colours and styles for great prices. It was hard to stop myself buying more than these! I would totally recommend them, and I will be visiting again as soon as I can find an excuse :) They mostly sell washi tape, but also a few other things like rubber stamps and things for packaging. They are in America but shipping to me in the UK was nice and quick. I didn’t find any faults, and urge you to go check them out!
Thanks for visiting today!
