Haha Bunny Eyepatch

Kawaii Patch

My eye has recently gone a bit icky – nothing serious, just a bit red & dry – and my optometrist friend suggested I could patch it if I wanted to give it a rest. So I put my crafty skills to good use & made a kawaii eyepatch!

I used Aranzi Aronzo‘s Haha Bunny to decorate it as she’s so cute & happy, she’s bound to cheer me up ^_^

Bunny & Kitty Cards

Bunny & Kitty Cards

I’m off on my holidays next week but, before I go, I wanted to unveil my new kawaii cards! They feature a brown bunny holding a red balloon and a grey kitty with a blue kite. The cards are made with felt, hand sewn onto white deckle-edged blanks and are super-cute!
Look out for them in the shop when I return.

This looks quite similar to Asking For Trouble’s bear with balloon! Great minds, eh?

I haven’t been doing a lot of crafting lately as have been revising hard for exams but I have come up with a couple of new designs and Footie Shark is my absolute favourite!

Seeing this adorable design by Crowded Teeth gave me a horrid realisation that I have been sorely neglecting sharks. Burning with shame, I put my brain to work and came up with this fun design of a shark doing keepie-uppies.

This was my first attempt at sewing a felt design onto a bag and I found it fun but fiddly! I also noticed I’d drawn the bounce lines the wrong way on the notebook so changed that for my bag design. Hope you love him as much as me!

I was clicking about one day trying to find some kawaii gifts for Marceline‘s birthday, and came across these amazing plush envelopes by My Paper Crane but unfortunately they weren’t available to buy at the time.

Cursing my misfortune, I then found this brilliant tutorial by LucyKate Crafts and she made it look so easy I decided to make my own cute plushy envelope!

The grey one is my prototype and the blue one is the final version I sent to Marcy. I added a felt ‘stamp’ to the front and lined it with cute bunny fabric I got in Tokyo. I think she likes it!

*Many thanks to the very talented ladies at My Paper Crane and MaryKate Crafts*

Here’s a sneak preview of the new cards I am making which will soon be available in my Etsy shop, once my shipment of fancy deckle-edged card blanks arrives. I used felt hearts to make the flower and sewed them onto the card. It didn’t take as long as I thought it would and looks so cute!

Sag

Sag - cutest optical measurement ever!

And here is the finished item – a sag! I got the idea from a tricky mathematical thing we were struggling with at college, joking about what we would do with a sag if we ever got our hands on one. So I decided to make myself a sag pincushion to keep my pins & needles safe whilst revenging myself on sags!

I did a bit of a doodle of what one would look like (saggy ears, confused expression as sags are very confusing) and came up with this. I am pretty pleased with it but the ears are not quite right and I have some ideas for improvements so will attempt v.2 soon.

Sadly it is too cute to hate so I’m hoping it will help me to learn to love sags!
