New vintage dolls

It seems all I am doing lately is creating new products. These dolls are just so cute :) I am having a whole lot of fun designing each one's outfit. Next on the list are some new friends for these friendly faces.

New embroidery hoop creations

So, here are the newest members of the hoop family. It is such an enjoyable activity creating these darling pictures. I am going to sell them with a sad heart ;)

Vintage Design Fair 2013

Last weekend was the always popular Vintage Design Fair in Hatfield, Pretoria.
I love displaying my products there, it is in the heart of the university area and attracts a lot of students.
Together with the decor you can always find excellent music and food as well.

I love my new display unit. It was created using old wooden beams from the roof of my house (we are in the process of renovating) 

 Love the sheep in their dish :)

Some more products featuring our old roof trusses - storage units using glass jars and old bolts.

New set of Vintage Blocks

I can not believe that I have been making these blocks for the past 3 years (maybe 4?) They keep on charming people. Lucky I still love making them :)
This new set features 4 furry friends, a Beagle, Chihuahua, Pug and Jack Russell.
They were a set of oil paintings I did a few years ago. I think they look smashing on the blocks.

Bunny Hoops

I had these embroidery hoops laying around my studio for quite some time. Ideas have been coming hard and fast but there has just not been time to get going.
This past weekend I eventually got to them and Mr & Mrs Bunny were born ;)
I must have the best job ever, creating my dreams every day.
The next family will be some gorgeous piggies..

Little Lamb

I am always looking for new items to add to my product list. This led me to a whole new range of soft toys.
After the first batch of Vintage Dollies I started on these pretty lambs.
They are just to cute :) I make them in a range of colours and each one is sure to make some little heart happy.

It is incredible how quick time flies. The last 2 months just flew by! I have been busy with some very exciting new product development.
One of them are these amazing doggy handbags.
I have always had a passion for our furry friends and when I was approached to help Barking Mad it was so easy to say yes :)
Barking Mad is a wonderfull organisation looking after resque dogs as well as placing dogs with new families. They devote so much towards this cause that I am happy to do my small part in helping them.
These handbags are made from a durable felt with hand embroidered designs on the front. The inside has a cotton lining.
If you are interested in purchasing a bag please contact A percentage of the sales goes towards Barking Mad.
There are some new designs coming, as well as one for the cat lovers out there.

New soft toy and floor cushion

Wow, it has been more than a month since my last blog entry.
It has been very busy on my side.
First of all, I spent 2 glorious weeks with 2 fabulous friends in Cape Town (will post some photos later)
We has so much fun and CT is just the prettiest place in the world to visit.
Secondly, I have been super busy preparing new stock for the Kamersvol Geskenke 2013 selection that takes place next week.

These are some of the new items. "Woof" is a softy with a shy side to him :)
The floor cushion is filled with lovely soft fluff and has a handy handle for little hands to carry around.
The fabric comes in a range of stunning colours. Can't wait to make a few more.

Vintage doll family

The family has grown. How I love to make these dollies. Each one seems to take on a character of their own. Can't wait to go and search for some more fabrics.

A great outing.

Flowery iPad covers

I just love creating these flowery designs. With only 2 more months of glorious hot weather to go before autumn decends on us, they keep summer going strong.

Bunting Handbags

Here are 2 samples of my new range "bunting"
The handbags are made from the same industrial felt as my other products and have a vintage cotton lining.
These bags are such fun and always draw attention.

Getting stuck into 2013

I can not believe it is almost 2 months into 2013 and this is my first entry.
The 3 weeks we spent at Ligogo in Mozambique seems just a faint memory.

The year started with a bang. Kamersvol Geskenke was such a good advertising platform for my work. I have received so many orders since the beginning of January, a true blessing.

I have expanded my vintage block range with key holders made from old skirting board, money boxes and note blocks.
They were great sellers at Kamers.
