I've been Mrs Stitchy fingers recently, pumping out some blanket softies/cushions for my Camberwell Market stall. I love this pair of love birds, they look so cute together. I'm really enjoying sewing these blanket softies, you can keep the shapes and motifs really simple because the blankets do all the talking. I'll have some more photo's of other designs over the next couple of weeks and you can see them in person at my next market stall on the 12 of June. I've never really sold anything I've made before. I've been making these blanket softies, some super hero capes for kids out of vintage sheets and some cute leather brooches so I'll be interested to see what the reception is like.
The kids have been quite kind to me and have largely left me to sew while they play (one of the benefits of them getting older I guess), it's so nice to be able to do something for myself, I just wish I didn't have to keep stopping to do housework.
