You remember the little blue gnarf i showed you on Tuesday ?

background work had to be done


and i did it :)

you might have noticed a new button on the menu bar - right end. called Tutorials

There you find now all the free links i collected over the time.
There are a lot of free information on how to do it
Free pattern and Instructions

To a lot of topics :)
felting, teddy making, wet felting, drawing, doll making, and so on

in the next couple of days i will transfer the shop list to the new address to.

And in between i needed to do something without thinking ….

This happened

The orange i made before i did the soap actually, just did not post a picture yet
i am not sure, will i make green leaves to make it an orange
or a corona of yellow to make it a sun.


And today, i tried again some felted soaps, and it did not work out at all
So i was fed up, and needed to do something to cheer me up.
I did not want to make a gniffer gnome copy again, so i gave him a beard and ears :D


This is the gniffer gnome copy i did a few days ago btw.
i made a flower since then on the side and now it is in my glass cupboard and looks at me and want a family :D
