Possible new products :)

Hi everyone! Have finally convinced hubby to fork out the dosh for me to start my own home bussiness! Yay! So watch this space. I should be ready to go in Feb :) In the mean time I've been practising my skills and fine tweaking some cute baby toys for the online store. I can't give away the name just yet but it will be something to do with Owls hehe.
In the mean time here's a couple of pics of what I've been working on. Just a little taste of things to come. Will mostly be selling baby toys and funky bandana bibs to begin with. The clothes will come later.

Giraffe mania! These all have little rattles inside and are perfect size for little hands at only 20cm high by 10cm wide :)

Oswald Owl is my mascot. There will be many owl related products. Ossy is just the first of many. I made this one while quite intoxicated so forgive me if he's a bit wonky lol. I plan on adding some long skinny legs to the next version :)
Taggy balls! Every baby loves a good taggy ball :) This is the first of many to come. Just needs a bit of fine tuning.

My sewing misadventures

Hey all!
Hope you have had a fantastic Xmas and a boozy new year :) I know we have! Well I know I haven't been very active online lately but what can I say. It's summer here in NZ and we live on the beach lol. The last thing on my mind is the computer! But I thought I'd drag myself online to show off my Xmas present from my amazing Husband. And despite all the jokes from my sisters about how I'll be bored of it in 2 second I have every intention of putting it to serious use on a long term basis :)
Last night was New Years eve and what did I do? I spent 4 hours, 3 attempts & 10 beers on a tiny toy giraffe that I have named BB. It's only fitting that something I put so much time and love into should go to by best friends baby Bailey. It might not look like much but I am rather proud of this wee creation. I even managed to get a tiny rattle in her belly. Can't wait to see Bailey slobber all over it lol.
Anyhoo I'm off to pull out all my hubby's old t.shirts so I can recycle them into play pants for the gremlins.
Here's the link to the pattern for this gorgeous wee Giraffe. It's about the easiest pattern I've ever come across and super easy to personalise. LINK

Happy New Year!

All Mine!
