So, in the last couple of weeks I've made and sold two Minions, two foxes and a tiger for work colleagues:
And a shark and another fox for an etsy order. Foxes do seem to be the animal du jour, this winter. I have no idea why.
I still have a penguin to make (almost finished) then, that's it for Christmas orders!
Getting stuff out of the house is progressing; I sold this on our local Facebook selling page this afternoon, which freed up a chunk of room in Mini CC's bedroom. I thought there was going to be tears as it was collected (I was trying to get it out of the door without her noticing), but a swift box of smarties proved a distraction!
Also did some re-cycling to make Mini CC's nativity costume - she has been cast as "a Traveller". At the inn, I presume.
Didn't have much time, so an old pillowcase (bought from a charity shop a while ago when a friend with a child a couple of years older warned me about the number of costumes that would be required & the fact that you can make most of them from a pillowcase) had a head and arm holes cut into it to make the main outfit.
Tea-towel on head held in place with elastic headband & a belt made from stuff in my "braids and cords" craft stuff box.
Right, back to that penguin hat.
