Natty Nativitys

A natty little, make-it-yourself nativity that I made for sale on Etsy and Folksy, this is the coloured in version, it comes like this

and is a right bargain at £3.00, great for keeping the kids amused in the run up to Christmas.

While I am on about Nativities here is the one that I made many years ago for my own bunch of nose miners

much added to over the years, we have a holy trio of pigs, a very weird lamb, that my Mum made, and the baby Jesus has been called "the Holy Maggot" for many years now, cant think why!

Baby Jesus and All

This is the paper cutout Nativity that I have just made as a downloadable pdf file which is for sale on Etsy and Folksy.
Everyone is there, the little baby Jesus, his ma and pa, all his friends both rich and poor, lots of sheep a lowing cow and a little donkey.  If you buy it you get to colour it in and make it, hours of fun for the Christmas holidays!

Christmas is coming

and I love making stuff for the tree, the house, any excuse.  This year I am going to put them up for sale in the Folksy/Etsy/Zibbet shops that I have made.  Very pleased today as I got my first sale of prints from Folksy.  They are great sites, all three and very easy to use, well worth trying if you like making things.

Prints Again

To be found on Folksy as well as Etsy

Sailing Club

This is going to be sold as a print to make a bit of money for our local sailing club, it contains many mini "portraits" but you have to know who you are looking for and I am not telling who is in it!

Summer Scrap Jacket

Scrap patchwork jacket, super speedy construction, I think I will spend some evening time embellishing it with simple embroidery stitches and a few odd buttons.  Main thing is it is bright and cheerful...that I like!

I Made A Swimsuit.

I finished a very long and involved illustration job this afternoon and so, as a little celebration, I made a swimsuit out of an old T-shirt, using my new over-locker.  It is a fine and dandy swimsuit, with "boy leg" styling (that is the more retro swimsuit look) and a little bar at the back...
Now,what else?  Pants next perhaps, silk bloomers, old T-shirt knickers, the mind boggles!
