Happy Land!

I am trying to finish off artwork for the walls in the nursery. I decided to do a vector version of one of the illustrations I did in the exhibition last year. I added in a little extra detail and used ice creamy colours which will tie in with the rest of the colours in the nursery. 
I think it turned out rather sweet xx

Rag Doll

When my good friend Bee over at Honey Jumble had her baby Elora, I decided to make her a rag doll. Once again I am not good with patterns and I couldn't even find a pattern - so I just winged it and made my own up! I was quite happy with the result. Not perfect, the stitching was a little dodgy but overall I think she is quite sweet. What do you think?

Kokeshi & Elephant Giftwrap

These two giftwraps are products I designed at artwrap. I was pretty happy how they turned out and had a lot of fun creating them!

Patchwork Quilt & Pillow

Here is a sneak-peek into some of the little projects I have been working on for the baby's room. I had trouble finding a quilt I liked at the shops and in the end thought stuff it I will make my own. I wanted the nursery to be unique, pink but not too pink and a little bit vintage inspired. I am no expert when it comes to sewing things and I have trouble following patterns, so I usually just make up my own along the way. But I found this blog Diary of a Quilter very handy with the quilt and Cluck Cluck Sew was the inspiration for my pillow. Sewing can be quite addictive. Give it a go!! The cute Scrapbook Girl Rattle Toy is by Mamas & Papas - Daddy-to-be found it.

New Illustration

I have started on a couple of illustrations for the baby's room. If I like them enough they may even go into my Etsy shop. Here is my Babushka Dolls illo - they are a trend that just doesn't seem to go away but I don't mind because I enjoy drawing them. I love not having to draw hands!

One month to go!

Yipee.. only one month to go till I have this baby! I started maternity leave a week and a half ago and had my Baby Shower on the weekend which was just lovely. Now I am free to do crafty things for the baby and maybe get some new illustrations done for my etsy store.
