Happy Easter

Click above to go to the link and download. (by right clicking/save as)

She needs brads holding her basket, arm and legs on and her hat can be glued.

And then she should look a bit like this:

Jointed paper doll

You can paint the top of the brads to blend in with the skirt.

Do let me know if you make her, I’d love to see.

Best wishes

Peeps links 8 April, 2011

As Easter is coming up I am going all themed, there is this post, and on Monday I will be talking about dolls and putting up my Easter treat.

I am a tiny bit obssessed (after years of following American craft blogs) about Marshmallow Peeps. If you don’t know Peeps are an American candy, I haven’t seen one close up but they come in BUNNY version (this is the cutest version, I have a little bunny peep trinket box) and a slightly weird looking chick version. They are marshmallow and brightly coloured and covered in what I suspect is sugar. One of my dearest friends is American and I suspect she thinks I have gone mental. For a value of ‘gone’.

Anyway it seems that when one is coming up to Easter in America that there is nothing more Easter-like to do other than make crafts from Peeps or using the image of Peeps. It’s like the baby Jebus, but sugary.

Peeps Sushi (OF COURSE!!!!!!)

I think this is super cute actually.

Make had this ‘Peep’ show on their blog yesterday. I think pretty much everyone has to see this. It’s genuinely amazing. I want one for my house. I’d have it by the door to welcome visitors.

Many things! 1 April, 2011

I haven’t stopped updating this, just a bit busy at the moment. Here’s a ‘what I’ve been up to’ update.

1/ I’ve sorted out my online portfolio. Have a look here

I’m working on a downloadable (and free! Woo!) jointed paper doll as an Easter gift to my readers. Here’s a sneak preview. She needs a tiny bit of work and I managed to put her legs too far up so she looks a bit short!

There are some more pics on my flickr

Am also making another jointed doll. She needs a new right arm (I broke her hand!!) and painted/varnished limbs. PLUS clothes. But you get the idea.

I’m also making some little mittens to go with this beret I knitted:
