Fancy a cupcake?

My blog should have been called "I love felt" as it is my favourite at the moment. I just love how you can create anything with it. My love for it came in 1997 when studying for my child care Diploma, I made "3 blind mice" as a felt board story. I have since made loads of stories and puppets for the children, they love them. I love making them too, but now I am doing 3D toys which Ruby will really benefit from. I hope I can teach her to make them too. Here are some of my latest creations.

I have decided I am going to start making to sell these cupcakes. I have made different ones with different toppings. I have many more ideas so watch this space.

Felt David Bowie, the many faces of Bowie. I want to make a small quilt of him next, but we will see if I will do it or not.

Here are some of the treats I made for the toppings of my cup cakes. I cant work out my faves yet, I love them all.

Felt custard tart, I made this for my mum.

I also made these happy sweets for my mum also. So cute even if I do say so myself.
I have got more things on the go, but my time is now taken by my little girl. Sleep Ruby so mummy can sew.

My Favourite things

A few years ago I began buying colourful crockery, whilst in London I found more and more beautiful colourful kitchen ware. This is a collection of my colourful stuff in my kitchen, I love using all the bowls and cups to display my food because.... the first bite is with the eye.

I just love all the colours and they really brighten up my kitchen as it is a grey and white one. So I have them all on the bench so I can see them and it makes me happy. The cups and spoons are by rice which I have found you can buy from Lark, I could have bought so many more but as it turned out I came back to Oz and I had to send all of these back plus everything else


During my time off I have been busy with my felt sewing also. I have started doing some more cupcakes. This is one of them, I might try and make more to hopefully sell at at market.

A few years ago I bought a house with an ex, this beautiful Harlequin tea cup set was left in the house. As you can see they are beautiful and full of colour. I don't have the house or man (thank god) but I did keep this bits of loveliness.

I just love this plate, it is retro and my new favourite thing in my kitchen. Mum had it and it was from my Nana's house.

I have also been making some biscuits with my felt. Here are a few of them, I am a bit obbsessed with the felt at the moment. Watch this space for more Felty Goodness.
