Woodland Crafting

Right now a huge storm is brewing outside, the wind is howling and big splats of rain are heralding the coming fierceness. What better time to be tucked up on the lounge, with coffee and oreos, chatting with you fine folks! Luckily, I just finished photographing some cute little Woodland creatures I had finished to show you today before it got too dark outside to get any decent pictures.

I am quite partial to so many of the cute little woodland creature sewing and crochet patterns that are floating around the internet at the moment, so I decided to have a go myself. I did have grand plans to get a whole set made, complete with a newborn hat as well. I set aside most of today (Sunday) but by midday I was feeling very ordinary and deciding on listening to my big fat pregnant body, I had a 3 hour nap. Oh yes I did. It was the best. So, because of that, I didn't get half as much of my sewing done, but that's life. I will try to finish them off this week, and if I am mega organised, will have another post ready before hubs and I head off to our annual family Easter weekend away at the beach (which I am counting down the sleeps to!)

Here is what I got done this week (not including some baby blankets for our little girl coming in August, but that will be another post!)
Newborn/Infant owl hat complete with ear flaps

I will be taking orders for these hats cause they are too good to keep just for me! I will be able to do sizes newborn to size 3 at this stage until I work out the patern for the bigger sizes. You can choose your colour and what colour you would like your owl eyes to be as well - I find you tend to enjoy something so much more when you can choose all the particulars!
(The hat is made in organic cotton, double stranded, so it is soft and flexible but also warm)

Now for my cute Woodland creatures...

I had made this owl and squirrel as cute little baby hand rattles...

I hand stitched both of them (with another 2 to come) and inserted stuffing and a rattle.

I have a deer and tree cut out as well that I should hopefully have done soon.

I think they are really cute. I am wanting to make them as cuddlies as well, so they will be about 3 times as big as they are in these pics.
What do you think?

If you ever would like to find out more about my work or order anything you see, feel free to leave me a comment or send me message
Have a great week leading up to Easter, hoping that the Easter bunny is kind to you all!
