I'm back, I missed you!

It's been a long while since I popped into blogland. After a disastrous week with a very poorly arm, a trip to A & E and a disappointing fair we packed our bags and headed off to Spain for half term.
Littlest Jammer was keen Emily Button come too so I obliged and whipped her up a swimsuit from an old pair of pants!
 I didn't realise quite what I'd started. It was announced she'd need a hat too. So I trawled the wonderful world of Ebay and begged the seller to post it quick. A bit on the small side but it arrived the day before we left just in time for a quick trim up.
 Emily and Chester had loads of fun on their first trip abroad and I must say were incredibly well looked after by their little owner who even packed a wooden ice lolly. 
 What did I pack?...
Hmmm. No sewing machine this holiday...
I trawled Molly Makes and decided to make some of the little felt toys that could be hand sewn.
So I went with a pile of felt and as if by magic home came a deer,
a fox and a racoon.
Littlest Jammer bagged this pair for her friend's birthday and took them off to school this morning. Hope she liked them!
Now I'm off to see what you've all been up to over half term.


  1. Those little felt animals are so cute!! I've got some patterns from my Mollie Makes that I need to start making too!

  2. I thought I hadn't seen a post from you for a while. Lucky you going abroad to the sea and sun although for once we didn't fare too badly over here. Love your creatures.

  3. Glad you and Emily Button and the little jammers had a lovely holiday!!

  4. I bloody love holidays!!
    Glad you had a good time. Tried to message you back in relation to the eyebrows but you're a no reply blogger (yes, I know I have your email SOMEwhere!)
    Thanks though - I trimmed them this very morning!! (and a little nose hair - lovely!)
    Hope your Monday was good

  5. You've done a great job with that deer Ellie. I was looking at that on the cover, but thought the mag not worth getting just because I liked the cover. Seems you timed your hols just right as you're back for sunshine here too.

  6. Your dolls are so cute!
    What we have done? We made holidays in Britain, while you are in Spain!


  7. Glad you had a lovely holiday. You are such a good mum, getting a hat for Emily Button before you went and making sure she was all kitted out.
    Shame the fair didn't go to well - I popped into Custard Hall and the lady said your stock was low because you were at a fair but it still looked lovely.
