Introducing Vanilla

Have you heard? There's a new girl in town.
  She arrived beautifully packaged and hand delivered.
Unwrapped in a frenzy of excitement (both me and little jammer - um who's it for?)
Let me introduce you to Vanilla
 who is causing quite a stir in the Jelly Jam household.
She is the beautiful creation of the lovely Vanilla Squirrel and I ordered her in my favourite fabric.
Fabric I've had for ages, an old pinny in fact. It's been used for all sorts of purpose, cat bed only one of them, whilst I decided what to do with it.
 Anyway, I parceled it up and sent it to the Squirrel who transformed it into this gorgeous creature with super little details I love. All my favourite colours of course. I'm an incredibly fussy customer and after I'd requested hair colour and sent my own fabric I should imagine the Squirrel was thinking "Cripes what have I agreed to"!
Thank you Squirrel! Now Emily Button has a new best friend - just as I'd hoped. 
Don't you love a happy ending?
 We've had a fair amount of our own stitching going on this weekend. No ta dah photos just yet
 but I did break into this lovely early Cath Kidston fabric and wallpaper I've been saving literally for years
Pop back in a day or two and I'll show you what I did with it!
Have a lovely (white?) week!

  12. How marvellous. Love the dress and now two friends are made together.

    Not nuts Ellie, there is a blue footie boy windmill thing there. He's in Seagulls colours for Mr Bun. Have to put some boy stuff around not that he's care less.

    Hopefully we'll get rid of our snow and send it on to you. Seems we've got a nasty one heading our way on Friday though so you might be better off heading this way.
