… would like to wish you a Happy New Year! 🙂
We’ve had quite a nice break for the past few weeks. Been to the zoo, reorganised my stash, and managed to do some crafting too.
The softies above, were made with Mochimochi Land’s Stackable Cats pattern. I modified the ears to be more rounded for the bear and the panda (and shorter tails for them, but I’ve got no tail photos…), and different facial features for all of them. They were for hubby’s little brother, who loves softies and requested these.
And, like many people, part of the fun of starting a new year is getting a new diary. I was excited to discover that my favourite stationery store, kikki.K, sells diary ‘refills’ — their usual stylish diary contents on the inside, but without the pretty cover on the outside. I saw them and thought that these would be excellent to make custom book covers for. So I made one, out of some scrap japanese fabrics and linen. I love it so much, imperfections and all.
Too bad I discovered them a little too late, otherwise they would’ve made fantastic Christmas gifts I reckon! Next Christmas, maybe? 🙂
