Late last night I was taken by one of my creative frenzies and inspired to make the very first Scribblypop! And here she is:

My aim was to design a doll that I could make in 1 hour and I have succeeded in doing that, and what's more she is very cute!! The fact that I can make this doll in 1 hour means that I can price her so that she is affordable for everyone as a pocket-money buy. Even I could afford to buy one! LOL :)

She is just the right size to fit in the palm of your hand. I can imagine Scribblypops making their homes in handbags, on desks, on bookshelves, even in plant pots, and hopefully being loved by little kiddies too because they are small and squidgy!!

My next challenge was to make more Scribblypops and I have been working hard on that today and here they are:

I have lots more ideas for the Scribblypops but seeing as I have now covered the flat in cottons and fabric and ribbons and pins it is probably time for a quick tidy-up before I get creative again!!!

These three Scribblypops are now listed in my Etsy shop. The very first one, however, belongs . . . to me!!!!

Well, do you like the Scribblypops? Let me know. :)

Plushie Swap

I am feeling excited because I have just joined the Facebook page 'Plushie Swap'.

This page is for people who make plush toys. The only rule of the swap is that you must offer up a Plushie made from your own original design.
The first Plushie Swap takes place on 1st April 2011.

Here is the Cuddle Monster that I have made for the swap:

The Plushie Swap Facebook page can be found here:

There are so many great plushies that have been made by those who are taking part. I wonder which Plushie my Cuddle Monster will get to swap homes with!!

Cuddle Monsters Released Into The Wild!

Since October last year I have been releasing Cuddle Monsters into the Big Bad Wide World!!! The first Cuddle Monster was released on request of my daughter Rosie who asked for a pink fluffy monster for her birthday. :)

"What are Cuddle Monsters Spookypie?" I hear you cry . . .

This, my friends, is a Cuddle Monster:

Yes indeedy, they are fluffy, they are monsters, and oh they look so fierce but do you know what? All they need are CUDDLES!!!!!

I plan to release some into my Etsy shop very soon. They are being very naughty in my house and keep eating all the biscuits and jumping up and down on the beds!!!!

Easy Rag Doll PDF Sewing Pattern FINISHED!!!

YAY! I am so pleased to have finished my first sewing pattern. : ) I have been thinking about starting to make my own patterns for ages and I finally set to it and got one finished. I learnt so much by doing it. Hopefully, the next pattern won't take quite as long to write!!!! I am really looking forward to having some feedback about the pattern and seeing some dollies that have been made using it. SOoooo exciting!!!!! : )
