Meet my girls!

Thought I would introduce you to my girls. I've just started collecting Petite Blythes. The larger dolls are 12" and are very much out of my price range, but these 4" dolls are perfect for me. I never really had dolls when I was little so this is my little piece of childhood. I've just bought a dollhouse too for them, so expect to see my little projects on that too.

For now, here's the girls:

On the left is Aurora and the right is Amethyst.

This one is Anabelle, I just got her today! You can see a few more pictures if you're interested in my flickr (link on right).

Meet Chocolate Mint!

This is Chocolate Mint, the newest Titchables Owl! Isn't he cute? I have several more in the planning stages but I need to order the right colour felt for them - you never have the colours you want when you need them!

The Final Owl

After three tries, I think I've finally decided on my owl design. I put this together last night, used the nice felt and I love it! This one is called Rose Cheesecake. I've got a lot of colour combinations that I want to do so once I've stitched a few I'm going to be putting them online at folksy (and possibly etsy too).

More mushrooms!

Today, after doing a bit of idea sketching I thought I would make a set of mushrooms. They're small enough to be made into brooches or magnets (bought some supplies for making them this afternoon). Here's the mushrooms in progress, all ready to stitch up.

And here's the finished product! I love how these turned out. I'm thinking of selling them in sets of three. I'm planning on doing them with different colour tops too. They're really easy to make so that's a plus.

Mushroom house

I made this the other day. Definitely something I'm going to do more of. These are very cute pincushions, or you could just use them for decoration. I hand embroidered the vines and beads onto the felt. Really love this. :D

My owls

Thought I would show you my owls. I created the pattern myself and they fit in the palm of your hand. These are just prototypes right now as I'm just experimenting and see what works best. As you can see, here I was trying to see the best way to do the wings. I think I've decided the second way works better mostly because it's a quicker stitch. :)

I didn't embellish the second one, but I plan to on the finished products. I have a few sketches for different themed owls but I think this idea is still in the experimental stage.

Well first post so I thought I would just introduce myself. My name is Sarah and I am a 23 year old crafter who lives in Norfolk, England. I'm constantly inspired by everything and anything and always doing something crafty.

I have many different interests but my main one is sewing. I started with Cross Stitch (which I still do) and have now progressed to making softies with felt and material but you'll probably see a large array of different crafts.

I am in the process of setting up a folksy/etsy with some of my items which I hope you'll check out when it debuts.

In case you were wondering about the name Titchables, my dad used to call me Titch when I was younger and I just threw "ables" on the end of it because I thought it sounded cute. :)
