My website with blog

I switched to a new website provider and created a brand new site.
I really like the look of it and I was also able to import my blog from here.
That was very important to me.

I hope you go and have a look and follow me on my new blog with bloglovin. 
I have a button on the site. 
For now I will keep this blog open and let you know about new posts .
Hope to see you over at my new site!
I have more pictures of my new felted polar bear as well......   :)

( This is my first wet felted piece and ball)
 A few weeks ago I was able to go to the big city and meet a fellow doll maker
Monika from The Olive Sparrow
who taught me how to wet- and needle felt.
I had so much fun talking with her and learning from her.
She is truly a kindred spirit!

And here we are ! Monika and me!  

 Since then I have started to needle felt some critters, like this Mr. Fox

 A badger for my husband.

 And also a little sheep, that just got ready in time for Easter.

I really enjoy the process of needle felting and the artistic freedom I have.
There will be a lot more felting in my future for sure!!

It's bunny time....

This weekend I worked on this bunny girl.
She turned out soooo cute that I couldn't wait until she has all her clothes
to show some pictures of her. 

She is sooo soft and cuddly and full of soft wool. 

Look at that face!!!!!
Can you tell I'm in love?
Right now she is spending a lot of time with me and I will have to put some thought into if I want to keep her or let her go to a new home...
We'll see.

Bunny and owl

This custom pair is going on a big trip to the other side of the world.
They are going all the way to Australia. 

I love the color combination the customer choose for the bunny.
Since the eyes would be very dark and kind of hard to see on the dark brown
I thought it would be nice to have a lighter brown around them as a contrast.

I like it a lot. What do you think? 

The owl turned out very sweet as well.
 I like using some darker fabrics . They make the colors stand out more.

My latest creations

Just finished this puppy blanky.
With all the bunnies lately it was time for a puppy again.  :)
You can find this one in my Etsy shop

This lamb was a custom order I also just finished. 
With Easter around the corner I think some more lambs are coming my way. 

These logs,tree stump and leaves are also a custom order for the family that got the group of mushrooms lately.
Can you imagine how much fun it would be to get your imagination going when you play with these forest toys?

Custom Pirates and Ninja's

My latest custom order has been for little pirate sister and brothers and little ninja's. For this order the customer wanted bags with drawstrings so I came up with bags with the same pirate fabric, but different top edges so that the boys know which one belongs to them.  

 Little pocket pirates are just so much fun to make.

I can just imagine the adventures they will have together.

With the pirates I also made them these two ninja's

Gosh it has been a long time since I made ninja's.
Maybe I should make some more....... 

Little custom grandma pocket doll

This little pocket doll was a very special custom order. She is a grandma and hopefully she can help a little girl get over her big loss.
Dolls like that can be tricky. 
You want to get it right and so you put a lot of thought into it. I'm so honoured that I was able to create what the customer had in mind even without a visual. 

None of the hair types I used on pocket dolls before made sense for this oneuntil I thought of this curly mohair. It turned out just perfect.

The little jacket is made from a recycled wool sweater and has embroidered edges and a few French knots .

I have to say I'm just in love with this little doll !
