Scary monster

This guy is super-excited about the craft fair next week, he's hoping to find his forever home.

Biggles penguin

I'm doing a craft fair at the end of the month so I'd better get a-making!

I made him at the beginning of the week, and it has taken ages to do the scarf, I sewed it inside out and then tried to turn it which took hours of teasing it with tweezers. Really not worth the effort!

Woodland Waldorf doll

A lot of people get freaked out by waldorf dolls (a method of doll making by sculpting the face and then putting a pink 'stocking' of material over it). They can look pretty evil-twee.
But I thought I would give it a go. Making the head is kinda fun actually. 

Don't you hate it when you get hood-hair.

I'm not terribly good at making doll clothes.

Little booties!

Star Trek mat thingy

So as well as making things most of my time this week has been taken up with doing up the house. My guest wing is almost unrecognisable, I'm so pleased with it! This thing ticks both house and craft boxes. A quilted craft mat!

 Yes, I know I know, the mixing of TNG and TOS bothered me a little as well, but I wanted to make this and TOS fabric was all I had on hand. I think I will come to terms with it over time.
If you flip it over it can be used as a heat resistant mat for my adorable little craft iron.

And when not in use just velcro on your lovely new craft cabinet. Honestly I can not say how much I love my new craft cabinet. I'm never leaving the guest wing again!
Eagle eyed among you may notice it isn't a true square, that's because I followed the lines  and they slant a little to give that authentic 70s look.
