Brooches and a doll in a day....

 

I have now finished the brooches I made using man made fabrics that melt and thought you might like to see a few snaps .....















 












I will be mounting them onto cards and will probable take them to the up and coming craft fair but if anyone would like to buy one they will be just £4.50 each so please feel free to email me. [I can't get the photos to go where I want them sorry...think blogger has a mind of it's own today!]

 
As many of you will know it was our little Granddaughter P's 2nd birthday yesterday and I wanted something to give to her 7 month old little sister so she didn't feel left out while her big sister was opening her presents so at about 10 o clock yesterday morning I started knitting [it's what you do when you're a Grandma  :-) ].  This was the result and little L thought it was lovely so I thought I would show you just what's possible if you put your mind to it  :-)  I finished her in about 5 hours.  She is about 7" high and really huggable  :-)

The brooches are gorgeous, and so is the little doll. I'm sure little sister loved it. Well done Grandma!

Hi Wipso .
Your little doll is so cute, she definitely does look very cuddly.
I adore your broches, they have turned out really well, you must be very proud of them.
If I did not make my own things, I would definitely buy one.
I once made a similar flower and I think I used my heatgun to do the melting.

Have a lovely day
Sue xx

I found a tutorial for these ages ago and thought they looked beautiful, so delicate, yours have come out so very well as always -they'd make a great hair accessory too. xx

As Craig would say FAB-U-LOUS darling! They are gorgeous, couldn't pick one out - good luck!

these are all gorgeous Annie - you are such a talented lady. 5 hours - it can take me a couple of days to do a card sometimes LOL!!!

Well done - glad little L was pleased with her new dolly from her big sis...

Hope all goes well for A.
