So, I have gone ahead and created a little Etsy store of my very own. I will be using it to sell little bits and pieces that I make, in the hope that it will a) make me a little bit of spare cash, b) inspire me to make many more things.
The first things listed include:
And Circus Bag!
Flynn and I have been toying over the idea of creating an Etsy for baked goods and candies! It would solve the problem of making things and then eating them and getting fat. Hehe.

Keiko has finally, officially out grown her original puppy bed. Something she was really not meant to do, she’s much bigger than she should be! So, now she needs a new bed. I set out copying the basic pattern of her original Cath Kidston, red star, small bed and decided to use my red spot cotton duck to make the new one (I really wanted to make it out of pink strawberry, but I think it might have killed Matt). I had to restitch things a few times to get it quite right, Keiko was VERY (un)helpful whilst I was stuffing and sewing it, so I decided to throw together a little Destroy Toy for her to munch on whilst I was working, she loves him!
The bed turned out perfectly, it’s nice and big so she can curl up in it and roll around and not fall out. Unfortunately she prefers to dig the cushion out and get underneath it, something like a Shiba Inu hamburger. Hrmm.
