I made it myself...

I made a couple of these little guys for some people I know - one for my lovely friend GMcD, whose birthday it was the other week:

And one for Jo, at Diary of a Sad Housewife; I feel for her, she's in a crappy situation & sometimes the small things can help to cheer you up:

I love that each one of these guys has their own personality, their own life, and even though I cut them all from the same pattern, they all come out differently (and so cute!!!) - but how creepy is it that their eyes follow you round the room?  Just kidding.  Although the day they start talking back, I'm in trouble. 

I also got these in the mail:

& I'm trying to decide if it's okay to make frogs with fabric with owls on it - I guess it is - who's going to tell on me?  Aren't these gorgeous?  Suggestions please!


  1. Oh, I am LOVING these patterns--what a throw back! Retro reverence in my eyes!

    Thank you for the nice things you not only said--but also did.

    I love seeing 'my purple frog' posted on here!!!

    Everyone in my house is loving the scent, too (and you also wrapped it so beautifully--I took a picture of it before unwrapping it--so elegant!)!

    Thank you, again!

    Peace, love and happiness,

  2. Perfect timing! I discover your blog on the very day that I woke up and thought "Today I will do some sewing, I feel creative!"

    Was thinking about making a shirt, but now a bug-eyed frog seems far more appealing.


Hello, it's nice to see you! Thanks for dropping in to say "Hi"!
