Party for dogs

I had a lovely lady in the states buy a custom order of the heart banner to you left from me in pinks, white and cream. I had to make it ASAP as it was for a special puppy turning 2 and had to be in the states by the end of the following week!! You certainly find out how quick you can make something when you need to make it quickly!

 I waited very patiently to find out if she got it in time and I'm thankful to say that I was, for once, in love with NZ post for getting right this time round! Especially so close to Christmas! So on the 16 November, I went to go find her blog, and there it was! The photos! The party set up was so cute and I am so excited to have them featured!

Here's the link you can see for yourself and let me know what you think!

I love how appreciated and loved something I handmade became :-)

Hanging by a thread

Here are some photos of a recent item I've made, my pastel bunting/ garland/ banner collection of felt hearts! I got the inspiration from a photo I saw of white linen hearts. It looked so pretty! So I ordered some pastel felt from my supplier, made one up consisting of 16 pastel coloured hearts ranging from pinks, white, creams, blues and greens and I now have them available on Etsy for custom orders.

The amazing thing is, how popular they are! I have received 6 orders in two weeks just for this! Since I started Lullaby Mobiles and Designs, I always wondered if I would make something that would be become my most popular product, and this seems to be the one! I have so many treasuries and favourites on Etsy for these and it's so encouraging!
 This lovely soft pink one was a special order that went to the states (and I really hope it got there in time!) for a special little puppy called LuLu who has turned 2 and her owner is throwing a special puppy party in her honour! How sweet!

Every heart is hand cut, hand stitched and hand stuffed by me and I threaded through about 12 feet of sheer white ribbon. The hearts are movable along the ribbon so you can make the gap between each heart smaller or bigger depending on how and what you want to decorate :-)
These are available on Etsy for US$20 each (NZ$25)

Once orders quieten down a bit after Christmas I will introduce some other colours.

Have a great weekend!

Owl plushie

I'm rather excited about this "limited" latest addition to the Lullaby collection! I wanted to do owls for awhile now, and even though I had created my own little owl for a door sign that you can find here I still wanted to make a plushie for my daughter. So I found a pattern on Etsy but added and adjusted a bit of the pattern according to what I wanted and 3 hours later I got the photos on the left!

Entirely made of wool blend felt in green and pink and for extra cuteness, I added a tummy squeaker and a rattle! My 11 month old certainly loved it even though it was for his sister! Might have to put one together for him sometime (in between orders!) Here is a link to a video I made of the owl :)
