It occured to me while making her she would make a perfect thank you gift for a flowergirl.

She is made in beige felt, with polka dot lined ears. Her dress is pretty lilac gingham with an American binding tape bow and a soft knitted caplete fastened with a simple pearl button.

She has been completed with handmade felt boots and as an extra special detail I have added a soft white pom pom tail.

I have designed a range of children’s goody boxes for you to make for the children attending your wedding. They are perfect for keeping children occupied during the wedding  ceremony.  They can be filled with lots of fun items for example colouring materials, small games, jigsaws, puzzle book or even a small disposable camera.

For Christmas I have a cute Angel made especially for little girls and a fab reindeer which is suitable for both girls and boys.

Christmas Robin Cupcake Toppers

Wednesday, December 19th, 2012

Every year at Christmas I like to add a handmade element to our Christmas decorations.

This year I decided to make some cupcake toppers that we could keep and use each Christmas.

I decided to design some cute festive robins but I wanted to keep them simple so I could make them as and when I had the time.

Robin Cupcake Topper

Robin Cupcake Topper

They are made from a simple circle of brown felt with beaded black eyes a yellow felt beak and three layers of ribbon for its wings. I then wanted a cheery red fabric for his red breast so I plumped for a micro dot red and white fabric and to finish off I added yellow beaded legs.

To emphasise the details I used a black thread and stitched a back stitch around all the robins features and to make him extra neat I added another brown circle of felt to the back of him.

To add him to the cupcake I slotted a cocktail stick between the two brown circles.

Beaded Halloween Spider Tutorial

Monday, October 29th, 2012

Over the weekend I designed these Spooky Spiders, I thought they would be a fun addition to a Halloween wedding reception.

Spooky Spiders

Spooky Spiders

These spiders would look fabulous positioned in table centrepieces or hanging from candelabras or attached to your wedding favours.

Materials needed:

  • 4mm wire
  • Large bead (approx 16mm)
  • Smaller bead (approx 12mm)
  • 2 4mm beads
  • 24 large seed beads or 4mm beads
  • 24 7mm bugle beads

Tools needed:

  • Cutting pliers
  • Round nose pliers
  • Chain nose pliers
Spooky Spider Tutorial

Spooky Spider Tutorial

1. Cut a length of wire approximately 25cms. Thread two 4mm beads onto the wire position them in the middle of the wire and twist the wire to secure the beads in place.

2. Thread the 12mm bead on the two ends of the wire and position snuggly near the two 4mm beads.  Twist the wires so that 5mm of twisted wire is exposed near the 12mm bead.

3. Thread the largest bead onto one wire. Wrap the other wire around the back of the bead.  Twist both ends of wire together and cut the excess wire off.

4. Cut a 10cm length of wire. Wrap the wire around the middle of the spider to form two legs. Repeat three more times until you have eight legs.

5. Thread alternating bugle beads then large seed beads. In total thread on three of each. To hold the beads in place wrap the wire around itself.

6. Repeat step 5 until all eight legs are completed. Bend the wires to form legs.

Your spider is now complete.

Please note the spiders are for decorative use only they are not toys and are designed to be made by adults as they contain small parts which are unsuitable for children.

Please feel free to make as many of my spiders for personal use. Please do not make and sell my spider design.
