ArtFire.com Updates

Standard

I decided that trying to do our local holiday bazaars this year was just not going to work.  Hubby is taking a welding class on alternate Saturdays . . . which just happen to be the Saturdays I was planning to sell at the bazaars.  (Also, flu season and snow have hit. Bleh.)  So I am trying to stock up my ArtFire shop.  Only two new items posted so far, but I’ll be taking some more photos today.  Come back soon for more updates!Goofy Cat with Vest

For some reason, I can’t get the other new item’s picture into this post. Grrr.  So go visit ArtFire.com!  My shop is Butterscotch_Grove.

New Kitty

Standard

Here’s my latest creation – and it’s all mine!  I love how she came out…and the little vest just cracks me up.  Tell me what you think!

I’m having so much fun making dolls and toys for sale at our local farmers’ market, but I’d been nervous about selling some of my work, because they were based on other people’s patterns (modified by me, but still…). I made the pattern for this little kitty entirely myself.  It’s pretty simple – just a pancake doll (front and back pattern pieces are the same) – but it’s a start.  And its simplicity lets me play with fabric choices.

The vest is knit from one strand Red Heart TLC Essentials and one strand Lion Brand Fun Fur.  Isn’t it cute? :-)
