Spring Sale!!

Happy Spring to all my northern friends and happy Autumn to all my southern pals!  To celebrate the season, I'm having a big sale this weekend in my Etsy shop!  If you've been wanting to stock up on patterns, felt, safety eyes and buttons, now's the perfect time to get everything you need!  Please enter SPRINGSALE in the Coupon Code area once you get to the checkout to receive 20% off your entire order!  Sale starts Saturday, 28 March, 12:00am Eastern time and goes till Sunday, 29th, 11.59pm Eastern time.

Just a quick note about the little bunny in the above photo - she's a re-make of my original Pocket Bunny pattern.  I've tweaked the pattern pieces a bit and the new pattern will include step-by-step photos, a grid for the face pattern piece (to make it easier for facial feature placement) and the bonus part is that it will also include pattern pieces, photos and instructions to make a little boy bunny wearing a cute pair of shorts! 

 Aren't they a cute pair?
   Here's a photo of the original Pocket Bunny (above right) and the new one on the left.  As you can see, the new bunny is slightly smaller in the body, her little ears are different as is the placement of her facial features.  I've also included a tiny bow accessory.

I'm planning on re-doing each of the original Pocket Pets (below) and will share photos of their progress as I go through each one.  I hope you like the new version of the bunny so far!
Have a fabulous weekend!

A New Look for Flora the Explorer!

Flora the Explorer has had a make over!  I've tweaked her pattern here and there and I hope you'll agree that her new look is much cuter than before! 
 The newest version of the pattern includes a slightly different face grid for facial feature placement, bigger eyes, shorter legs, a brand new suitcase and a sweet little bow!  I've also completely re-written her pattern and have included many photos showing how to make her.
I've made a bunch of these sweet kitties in different colours and each one is available as a kit in my Etsy shop.
Below is the original Flora which I created a couple of years ago - you can read more about her here:  http://gingermelondolls.blogspot.ca/2012/02/flora-explorer.html
And then I re-did her pattern a while later and created the ones below:
They are positively beady-eyed and unfriendly looking in comparison!
I hope you like her new look!
