a lovely pair

I've been Mrs Stitchy fingers recently, pumping out some blanket softies/cushions for my Camberwell Market stall. I love this pair of love birds, they look so cute together. I'm really enjoying sewing these blanket softies, you can keep the shapes and motifs really simple because the blankets do all the talking. I'll have some more photo's of other designs over the next couple of weeks and you can see them in person at my next market stall on the 12 of June. I've never really sold anything I've made before. I've been making these blanket softies, some super hero capes for kids out of vintage sheets and some cute leather brooches so I'll be interested to see what the reception is like.

The kids have been quite kind to me and have largely left me to sew while they play (one of the benefits of them getting older I guess), it's so nice to be able to do something for myself, I just wish I didn't have to keep stopping to do housework.


  1. oh Estelle those love birds are... well they are lovely! I'm sure they will sell like hot cakes!

  2. oh they are gorgeous....'stopping to do housework'??? what's that? Oh I had a man come to fix the fan in my oven today, so I had a big oven cleanup before he got here, he did say how nice it was for a 17+ yr old oven♥
    Hope I'll make it to C'well on the 12th.

  3. They're gorgeous. Lovely lovebirds. You clever thing!!

  4. Those lovebirds are just too cute! They look perfect for snuggling!


Thanks ever so for taking the time to say hi!
