I’ve been designing some kawaii fabric for my dolls. Vampire Kitties is available from spoonflower.com in three colourways: blue, pink and red. There are three human scale versions available by the yard and a special Doll Coordinate version scaled down for our girls.

On a recent visit I was seduced by a few balls of Debbie Bliss’s Donegal Luxury Tweed Aran yarn. Continue reading “A Handsomely Tweedy Hat”
Feeling inspired by talk of Prince William and Kate’s upcoming Royal Wedding, I decided to make a regal looking cushion. Jazzed up to be less stuffy of course – the Union Jack is pink and purple instead of red and blue, and a gold “B” for Blythe monogram is stitched across the centre. It’s all worked in cross stitch.
