Matching Finger Puppets for the Easter Hand Puppets.

To go with the Korbond Easter Puppets I also made matching Easter finger puppet templates, which people could make baby bunnies and lambs etc to go with the mammy or daddy big ones. The images are below if you just print them at A4 Size on a printer. The downloads and instructions are on the Korbond Sewing Solutions website. Have fun! Please Note: These are for home use only and not to be made into items to sell or re-produce. Thanks.

Easter Hand Puppets on the Korbond Sewing Solutions Website.

As seen as this easter is cold and some people still have snow why not check out the recent Easter Hand Puppets I made for the Korbond sewing solutions area on their website. There is an Easter Chick in an egg, an Easter Bunny and also a Fluffy Lamb (to keep him warm in this cold weather). They can be found over here > Korbond Sewing Solutions.

Miss Lily the Doll for friends 20th Birthday

It was my friends Birthday this week and we were going for a special birthday meal last night in Newcastle. My friend is known for her love of pink so while I was browing the internet the other week I came across the Dolls and Daydreams facebook page. I have never made dolls before and as seen as this was a one off special make for a friend I purchased the pattern to make her a completely Pink doll (One on right is friends Doll as the left was my first attempt and I then changed pattern slightly bigger arms/legs and changed them around.) Doll is now in her new home and has been named Lily. Happy Birthday Helen!
