Cookies and Cream Earmuffs


From the first moment I made the cookies, I have wanted to make them into earmuffs. But I never got around to doing it, till now. And they work great as earmuffs! They are even adjustable. :)

 Today, the light was perfect for a photoshoot. My little sister, Naomi, was happy to model for me.

And what a wonderful job she has done to make them look fun as well as fashionable! :)

Baby Sasquatches

Baby Suki Sasquatches

Last week I was busy making these furry little ones. Yesterday, I listed them up on Etsy, one boy and 4 little girls. They were snapped up right away!

 Today I packed them all up and sent them off to their new homes.

 As soon as I find more brown fabric, more red Sasquatches will be made. I do not like choosing favourites, but I think he might be my favourite.

Here is the little boy Sasquatch with his nappy ready for his journey to his new home.

I put nappies on them just for taking photos, but everyone liked them so much I had to include them too! :)

A new batch of babies will be coming soon...

My oak table

Last week, Lucio, the cousin of Francesco's Uncle, finished making the table for my studio!

It was very exciting to photos of the table, for the very first time.

 Here it is, still in Italy. It is 3 meters long! I have no idea how we are going to get it in the house...

All that needs to be done, is a coat of transparent paint. We decided it would be nicer to keep its natural colour.


The best thing about this table is that the wood is make out of an oak tree that belongs to Francesco's parents. It was an old tree that they cut down over a year ago and has been cut and dried out especially for us.

Here are our fathers discussing what we will do with all this beautiful wood.

We will be using it also for our kitchen and our stairs. And also another table for my studio.

I cannot believe it has been over a year since we got the keys to our new house and we still have not moved it...

I am predicting we will be able to move in January - if all goes well!

Cookie Keyring Season

October is Cookie Season!

All of these were hanging in our garden, all staring back at me with their irregular paired eyes and sticky out tongues.

The plums have recently finished, and now pear season is almost over. But there are Cookies!

Freshly picked

Happy October Flowers

These flowers will certainly bring cheer! Perfect for as a gift for any occasion! The really brighten up the house with their smiley little faces!

Soft, fluffy wellness fleece makes a great combination with colourful cottons to make such pretty petals.

These are available in the Etsy shop

It's a girl!

A healthy baby girl Sasquatch

She comes with all 6 fingers and all 6 toes!

After the second attempt at a another Sasquatch, I am happy with this one. I just wish working with fur did not drive me so nuts!

Preparing all the Sasquatch bits

There are quite a few seperate parts - mouth, teeth, ears, hands, fingers, feet, toes.... she's a fiddly little bugger!

 But she is quite adorable! :)

Today was a bad sewing day... I have been working on making more of these little babies, however I am struggling to make them look like this one. It's tricky getting all the different parts right! Tomorrow I will take a break from them and do something else. I hope to have some available soon.

Baby Sasquatch

Suki Sasquatch

Everytime I work with these kink of furry fabrics I always complain, and yet I still cannot resist buying them and trying out new things. It is nightmere! Fur everywhere, all over me, all over the carpet... it just gets EVERYWHERE!

Suki Sasquatch

 This little fella was made yesterday. When I began to remember how much fur drives me nuts, I almost stopped after making the head.

 This design needs some tweaking. For starters, he needs feet. Little sticky out feet.

I cannot bring myself to go through all that mess again for now... especially now I can only work in the bedroom.

Donut-ing again

Bunny Donut

Because I was commisioned to make the Sleepy Cats I had to find a way to work. We are inbetween homes right now and are staying temporarily with my parents. It's a small house that is crammed with all of our boxes. They are stacked high, from the floor to th ceiling and it is impossible to find anything.

Sewing was supposed to be on hold until we moved to the new house. However, what was supposed to be only a month or two stay has extended to goodness knows how long... 

The setup for working is not ideal, but I have to make do. I have a tiny table with my sewing machine, in the bedroom and every mornign the mattress that we sleep on has to be flipped up just so we have space to move.  

Now I have resumed sewing, I have an urge to make new Sukis. I have limited access to my fabrics and materials so there are some things I cannot make for now. 

There are enough fabrics for me to play around with in the mean time.

I am absolutely in love with the new wellness fleece I recently acquired in Amsterdam!!! It's super soft and fluffy and make wonderful donuts!

Today I am planning on trying out the new fabrics with a flower!!!

Donut ears

Three new bunny donuts

Progress on the website is slow.... it feels like this website will never get done!!!

A lot of work as been done in preparing images. Every Suki below has been cleaned up in photoshop to remove all backgrounds. And every shadow has been painted by hand.

There is still so much to do...
