1 2 3 of something new - step 3.

Step 3 last one in making something new is the best . Its the time when I hire two specialists for testing how well are the items made. My two kids get to play and sleep with the new toys. This is also time when I make notes what needs to be improved, any changes done or even if it makes sense to make any more before I start massive production. So here are three new toys for spring time craft shows:Snail, Frog And a Doll.

1 2 3 of something new - step 2.

Step 2 of my experimenting with new ideas. Well after I have all my templates ready I start choosing fabrics and cutting out  the shapes. then I start sewing. This particular item was sewn by hand because my kids went to bed and I didn't want to wake them with my sewing machine. It takes much more time to sew it by hand so that's why its not done yet. The first time I make something new I make only one and if it works out after that I will make few at a time ( about 10). So here is my first frog with legs to be attached.

Work in progress.

Today I had finally full morning for myself, kids went back to school so I could do some crafting without interruptions. This week I will be spending with my scissors, cutting out all sewing projects. I started with owls  and elephants.

Snowy ladies and gentelmen.

This is my last snowy/Christmas craft for now. Next week I'm starting on spring designs, there is lots of beautiful felt waiting to be transformed into turtles and owls and flowers. I also have some new ideas for some toys, all to come soon.
