Make Your Own Monster: felt kit

15 Aug

Here are some pics from a project I worked on a little while back for a make your own monster kit. I worked out the contents for the pack and how everything would fit together along with the instructions sheet. The packaging was set up by another designer from my initial designs – RAWR!

It’s a balloon!

My really old friend Emi has just had a baby boy…

Here is a little gift I made for him – his parents have a hot air balloon business (how cool?).

Welcome to the world little Harrison 😀

A book for Emilia…

21 Jul

In the interests of fairness between siblings, I have been making my niece, Emilia a felt book for her first birthday.

This one was quite tough to make – it would appear to be surprisingly difficult to think of things that begin with certain letters that are appropriate for this kind of thing and that make the right sound phonetically – especially as Emilia’s sister Alice already has her own book, so I couldn’t double up on any of the ideas!

This book has an animal theme, which I quite like as it’s less random than it’s predecessors:

Emilia’s Carry Cot Mobile

22 Sep

This month saw the happy arrival of my second little niece Emilia Zara – ahhhhhhhhh!!

Her mum had specifically asked me if I could make her a small mobile that she could attach to Emilia’s carry cot for when she is in the car. Here’s the result:

I was pleased with how it turned out in the end – the three magpies signify “three for a girl”. The black and white should be more stimulating for little Emilia’s eyes whilst she’s still only a squiddler 🙂

The whole thing is made from normal craft felt with some velcro, ribbon and glass beads for the detail. Click below to see some more pics!:

Liz’s Scarf

22 Jan

This was just a quicky project really, but it turned out looking pretty cool I think and it made a good crimbo present for my sister-in-law, Liz last year.

It’s kind of a homage to Laura Lees in felt/scarf format:

Super-Ward Cushion

19 Jan

I’ve been married for four months now and people ask me all the time what it feels like, and if life seems any different.

Truth is, apart from the fact that everything is near enough exactly the same, it does feel different being a smug married. Life is relatively back to normal now that the wedding is over, but I feel much happier and more settled than I did before – ahhhhhh…….

One of the main things for me that’s different, is that I have a new name. I have found that bit quite difficult as I really liked my old surname and being a Ward (as I now am), still doesn’t sound quite right when I hear myself say it.

In an effort to combat this new affliction change to my good name, I have set about personalising things to make it all seem a bit more exciting.

And thus, I give you the Super-Ward Cushion:
