I've been gradually sewing these faces over the last few months,
and they've eventually ended up in these hoops.
It is so much fun matching (or even not matching) up the fabrics,
faces, flowers and jewellery. I'm making some for a design market later
this year, but have also put a couple in the shop !!

This is the flower girl I couldn't get out of my head.
She is a custom made doll, with a personalized apron!
The brief was pink and green flower with a bit of shabby chic.
I wasn't sure how she'd turn out, as I had to stuff her a different
way because of the petals on her head!xx

Lots of handsewing happening for these little Frida face brooches.
But the end result, with them all turning out so differently is worth it.
And I've started a custom order to challenge me again.
Trying new things and seeing where it goes.
I hope you're having a good and creative week.xxxJ

Sewing the big looping petals has been quite therapeutic for me this week.
I'm surprised at how even they have turned out.
I'm not sure if I've mentioned before that I get nervous alot, when I'm about to do the free motion sewing. I always worry that its not going to turn out, that I won't be able to do it. Being confident in myself is something that I really really need to work on. I still cannot get my mother's voice out of my head - that what I'm making is basically a waste of time and do I really think that anyone is going to buy that?!?!!
It seems to be ingrained and I'm not quite sure how to get rid of it.
So I'm listening to my own advice this week ::
just keep going and have a go!!xx
