I've been choosing to stay on the thinner side of commissions lately. I do love taking custom orders, but Poesy is at that age where, until I have a separate space to work, it just doesn't happen if she is awake. It's GREAT fun throwing fabric and shredding stuffing! Let's not even talk about the needles and scissors that she'd love to get her hands on if she could. When I do get a chance to sew, it's always during nap time or late at night after she has gone to bed. It's not such a bad thing, though. Eliminating (sewing) work during her awake hours just means that I get to focus on her instead of worrying about a million deadlines.
Here are a couple of my favorite things I've been working on recently. My favorite thing right now is being commissioned to do birthday cake toppers. Everything's more fun with a birthday hat, right? ;)
Just in case there is any question, the little guy on the left is a hedgehog and the gal on the right is a whale. I love the idea of these sitting atop a child's cake! So special.
I hope you all have a lovely Friday!
