Teddy Bear Cuddle Rug

I love this little guy's face.....either asleep or awake.  

He will make a wonderful gift for a new baby and the rug can be personalised before being put together - how unstressful is that?   I made him from Minke and the fabric used for the rug is a cotton on the front and more Minke on the back.   There is a little hand and machine stitching to finish, but all very easy.

Halloween Designs - for those who "do"!

Just finished this quick Halloween Candy/Lolly (for the Aussies who do) container.   Designs are up in the Etsy shop -  3 different ones and as a bonus, included are the eye designs to stitch on to felt.   Really easy, really quick.

I think mothers everywhere could put this on a shirt and wear it all year round.....

- even this one if you drink to excess!   :-)

 The felt eyeballs could be attached to brooch backs or to a hair thingamybob!

My test stitcher Annie made a Halloween Cushion....It is double sided - no escaping Halloween dreams!
Keep stitching and stay sane......Sue xxx

To keep things varied....Kookaburras/King Fishers

New to the shop today....Kookaburras - or with a colour change - King Fisher........or if you prefer, make 'em any colour you like!   Available in three sizes, each set is stitched in three parts.   There are plenty of instructions.   I have also included the fringe gum flower as a bonus - this file too,  has more than enough instructions on how to make them!    Normally priced at $4 for the set, there is a short sale about to take place and all embroidery files will be marked down 50%.   Go have a look and see if anything takes your fancy.


Cushion was completed with a zippered back.   I did some couching in blue for a bit of interest on the zipper flap.  

The flowers work well as a button cover for a bit of 3d work.

Pop on over to the sale which starts at 3pm Melbourne (Aus) time - GRAND FINAL SALE GO HAWKS!     (What can I say, I live with a bunch of footy fanatics - I'm humoring them).....
