Throwback Thursday: Blue Fairy

Blue Fairy
I made this little doll in September 2009. She is one of my prototype Wekeshi Dolls - Kokeshi style dolls with a western influence. 

I wanted to make a Blue Fairy as I was obsessed with the film AI at the time, and loved the Blue Fairy concept in the film :)

Throwback Thursday: My First Craft Fair

Me at my first Craft Fair

My first craft fair was at James Hornsby High School in Laindon, Essex - way back in December 2009. I was very nervous, even though it was a very quiet evening. I'd never taken part in anything like this before - I'd never even sold my work before, so this way a massive step for me. 

As you can see in the picture, I busied myself with more crocheting lol It was something to keep my nerves down and helped pass the time in quiet periods :)

Making Chester

Last month I was asked to make an amigurumi of an OC, named Chester, for a customer on Facebook.

Here are some W.I.P shots



Stage 1

Head Complete

Hmmm...

Before Sewing

He went though lots of changes before he was finished, and I really like the way he turned out :) I used the base of Chester for my Humphrey Bear and Bunny Blue patterns, so Chester had a big role to play in my latest pattern writing binge :P

I hope the person I made him for is happy with him - he went all the way to Florida!

Pink


A shot of one of the amigurumi's I've been working on this past month - I haven't come up with a name for him yet so he is nameless at the moment, bless! 

He is free standing, measuring in at approx. 22cm tall, with an attachable/detachable heart (held on with press studs)

I really like the base of this amigurumi, and intend to use it to make a few different animals for my Etsy Shop , which is currently closed so I can do a big update with new patterns and ready made items :)

Hope you like him!
