New Work!

Hi, friends!  Here's a little peek at what I've been up to:

I made a set of fox cake toppers for a very lovely couple.  I can't wait to see pictures of their special day!


I also made a little hedgehog for the cover of Mollie Makes!  You can find the pattern inside, and the best part is this little guy can be made from scraps you have around your house!


The issue comes out September 28 (in the UK).  It was a lot of fun being a part of this magazine!

Have a wonderful day!!

  1. What a sweet little hedgehog, all nestled down in his liberty print leaves. Always inspired by your work. Managing to be whimsical without being overly dinky.

  15. Oh my word! Those little cake toppers are amazing!! I opted out of putting anything on the top of my wedding cake because I didn't want to be cliche, but these are perfect! Great job :)

  29. I LOVE the hedgehog. I've actually been looking to get a hedgehog as a pet, but I think my super-skittish cat would hate me for it. I'd love to make a plush one- is the tutorial available online, or do you have to buy a subscription? (I wouldn't have a huge problem with getting the subscription, I'm just a bit broke these days)

    1. I believe you would have to buy the magazine, but just the issue- not a whole subscription. :)
