Sock Creations

I've had a few enquiries about buying Sock Kitties recently.  I do take orders and if you are on Facebook you can go to my Bumble Bees Craft Den page on there and contact me or if you aren't on Facebook then you can email me bumblebeescraftden@gmail.com and I will get back to you.

I only post within the UK as it's too difficult to track parcels going out of the UK - so sorry to anyone that is not in the UK!!

Here's another mini Sock Kitty that I made for someone last week.

And a couple of Sock Monkeys

Bye for now!

Sock Owl

I was recently asked if I could make a Sock Owl so I had a go and was really pleased with the result.

I enjoyed making this little fella and will be making more of these after Christmas.

He is a mini one and is 6 inches high, I may try a larger one as well next time.

What do you think of him - I think he is quite cute!!!!

Christmas at Tenderfoot!!

If anyone is in the Bristol area on Saturday, pop along to Tenderfoot on Wick Road, Brislington where they are having a Christmas event 'Yule Love It'!!  A Christmas Shopping Extravaganza!!!  Lots of handcrafted gifts made by local artists.  You might even spot some of my makes there!!!

Hello America!!!!

There has been a huge interest from the US about a post that I made on here last December about some flannel reindeers that I was making to sell at a Christmas Fair.

I've not made any this year as I didn't do any Christmas Fairs due to the fact I was too busy with internet orders!!!

It's lovely to see the interest that my reindeers have generated and I'm just sorry that I'm not able to spare the time to do a tutorial at present!  I've not even started my own Christmas shopping yet!!

***UPDATE*** - I've done a Tutorial which can be found here!

It's Been a Long Time!!

Well - I took a little break from blogging and that turned into a bigger one than I had planned!!!

I've been busy doing lots of sewing and had quite a few orders for Christmas to get completed.  I'm nearly there now!!

One of the things I've made this year that has been very popular is my Gingerbread Bunting.  Eight little felt gingerbread men and ladies on some rustic twine with a mini peg at each end to fix it up.

This is what they look like

I've also made some larger felt tree decorations

I've also found my mini sock cats have been popular, quite abit smaller than my usual sock kitties but very sweet!!

I have not yet done any Christmas shopping but as I only have close family to buy for it shouldn't be too bad!!

I've some more things to show you but I will save them for another day!!

Thanks for staying with me!
