exciting times!

For the past few weeks I have been working on a project with my sister.

I ordered in extra felt, ribbon, beads and packaging bags.

My clever sister provided the artwork, which I printed on the new printer.

She also re-drew my *awful* pictures to use as instructions, which also got printed on the new printer. (she's a clever one my sister, you know)
And the end result?

My new make-your-own kit ::

make-your-own Owl Ornaments!
Yay!

Each kit contains :: pattern, illustrated instructions, felt (4 pieces), ribbon, felt ric rac, and glass beads...
They come in 5 colours and cost just £5.oo each!
They are on the website already and will be on Etsy in a short while

yummy, so damn cute!

I have a question, how did your sister draw up the pattern pieces, I have a mermaid sewing pattern all done except for the actual pattern pieces, I tried them by hand but they look a bit shabby.

Also, there is a bit of something for you over at my pad :o)

What a fabulous idea sweetie, very well done and lots of luck with them. They are going to sell like hot cakes.
Will you be adding more making ideas to them? like make your own cupcakes.
Many hugs.

They are adorable! Wish you could bring them to the bloggers handmade & vintage fair! They'd make super gifts.
