From Another Time!

As I am working on a number of 'secret' projects for swap partners at the moment,

I thought I would share some things from another time-

another time in my crafting life.

Have you ever made soft toys or dolls?

This cute giraffe is called Mrs Perkins- a "Melly and Me" pattern!

She was a present for a friend's little boy.

And this lovely doll goes so far back I'm not sure who made the pattern-

I love making dolls with all their parts and bits!

This one has the most beautiful hair!

And a pretty little face....

cute buttons.....

and an embroidered apron.

From memory this doll was one of a set, with one for each season.

Maybe someone out there has "Summer" or "Winter"?

The deadline for some of my secret swaps is coming up on 7th February-

So maybe next time I'll be able to share some of what I'm sewing at the moment!

Until then-

Happy sewing!



  1. Secret swap projects - no stress there then...! Love that giraffe - I mean the doll is kind of cool too with her fabulous hair and enigmatic smile but the giraffe is MAD!

  2. I'm literally just checking that Mrs.Perkins pattern in. Super cute!

  3. We don't mind waiting to see your creations. OK--as soon as I get the laundry done, I get to do some happy sewing. YAY!

  4. Thank you so much for joining in the picnic. Your giraffe and dolly are both gorgeous.


Please leave a message! I love your feedback!
