Smurfette v. Daleks

I'm so meta even my hats have hats.

Here's my dalek hat front on. Of course, the eye stalk has been made to look more like the sinkplunger arm. This is the only way I could make it not-a-penis-hat

Got to say though, it is a comfortable snuggly hat, it comes right down to your eyebrows, and cups your ears in fleecy warmth.
Side view of the flaps for ya.

Apron, piggies, poo and a hat

I am usually the secretest of all secret Santas, but I suspect the recipient may have had something of an inkling it was me (I told her). So this braai themed apron will surprise no one. Also, I can now pronounce Boerewors.
Little silliness. I've been playing with felting. So there is a little Cobweb sniffing Winks, a scottish boy piggy we've never met.
I have had sooo much fun making this felt, fleece and pompom bristol stool chart. Numbers 1 and 2 are stuffed really tight so they are really firm whereas 5 is all soft and fluffy edged. Number 3 is my favorite.
 Happy wampa hat for a baby.

A hat and a cat

Unfortunately, some of the things I have been working on you can't see because Santa has sworn me to secrecy for a couple of weeks more. So, in the meantime, here's some bits and bobs.

I made a baby viking hat for a small scottish chappy. It was hard as I didn't have a head model to put it on so I hope it fits and he likes it and everything.

And because you can't really see the stitching on the grey, here it is before I added the details to the horns

Last night I was going to carry on making the Top Secret Thing that I am working on, but my sewing machine kept bunging up, and it was cold and I didn't have any coke so I decided to sulk. So I made something not even remotely on my to do list. Here's a bit I cut out, can you tell what it is yet?

Filthy minds! It is a  cute little cat pin cushion.

A few more things are on the go, so watch this space.

Mal doll

If I ever win the lottery and quit my job, I promise to make a life size one. In the meantime, I threw this together quickly (thus the visible stitches) for fun.

NSFW* (there's botties)

*OK - totally safe for work I just wanted to make myself seem edgier.

And because bumflaps make everything better and Nathan's perfect bottom should be on show more, with the bumflap hatch framing it like a beautiful work of art.... sorry. Got distracted there.

There is a reason for the elephant. If you don't know, best not to ask. Let's just say he is the mead waiter.
