Little Lulu & Tubby

Here are my latest creatures:

I wasn't familiar with Little Lulu and Tubby (looks like I mispelled their name in my previous post)so it was hard to decide the right colors to use.
Hope my customer will like them!

Custom order

I received a custom order just before Christmas.
Due to my job schedule and my trip home for the holidays, I had to start it very late and I'm still struggling to finish it in a couple of days.

It's a necklace with two beaded dolls (like this one) of Little Lulu and Toby and 2 beaded heart earrings.

I love the crocheted rope. I just hate the stringing part...
I had to re-start it from scratch 3 times because something in the pattern I had made wasn't ok; then I realized I needed an "upside down" pattern to have hearts in both the directions (which you can't see in the pic).
Now I just need to go on for 10 cm and then I'll have fun with the little dolls.

Kindle case

This Xmas I received a Kindle touch from my BF.
I was soooo happy!

I've been wanting to buy an e-reader for a year, and now I'm glad I haven't because I've saved a lot of money. The kindle is much cheaper and more performant.
It arrived home just 1 day after my birthday, but I was so excited I bought a pattern for a case on etsy a couple of days before.
This is the result:

Despite my studies, I am NOT a good seamstress, even though I really try hard.
So for a first time it's not that bad.

My BF's grandma took out all her fabric stash to help me!

I bought the pattern from Birdiful Stitches and received it on my mail in less than 24 hours.

Happy Birthday... me!

I cheated on the candles, but only because I ran out of those little supports you put case you're wondering, they should have been 29!
