Little Red

For some reason, I love Little Red Riding Hood ( I don't think a Little Pink Riding Hood would have had the same impact). I have had great fun putting these dolls together and each is a one-off, using a combo of different fabrics. These sold really well at the market - they are a cuddle doll with a detatchable cape, made using felt and cotton. The face is hand embroidered and although I use the same techniques for the eyes, cheeks and mouth, somehow each Little Red comes out with her own unique facial expression! I will have some gorgeous hair ties with Little Red on them for sale as well.

Up, up and away

I have just finished a series of these pieces - hand-embroidered and appliqued on linen. The idea came to me after watching some beautiful hot air balloons float over our house one sunny Melbourne morning. I have girls in balloons as well as the boy above. These will be on sale at the Sister's Market on April 2 and other dates later in the year.
