Octonauts set of 5 off to their new home.

Octonauts are a very popular english tv program but they do not sell official plush teddies of them in the shops. I was asked last year to make some for someones birthday as he absolutely loved Captain Barnacles and have now made more and more recently this set of 5 complete with matching accessories.

Hope the 5 kids give them great homes.

My own Summertime handmade swap item…

Well here are pictures of my handmade swap item I made for my partner who was @dotsandspots on twitter.

I absolutely love sunflowers and they seem to be happy bright items and people normally love them in summer so I made a sunflower pin cushion and also a spotty lumpy bear as I heard they loved spots!

I hope Lumpy Bear is loving their new home…
