Retro and Jungle Taggies

Following on from the ‘making things in miniature’ theme, these are a few of the wee taggies I made last week. ¬†I had a hoot making them, not only because I love the designs on the panels, but also because it was such fun choosing the different types of tags so there were different colours, lengths and textures.

I love the wee red ribbon that looks like a tape measure, and was quite taken with the blue checked elasticated ribbon too – so much fun to pull and fiddle with ūüôā

I keep a couple of taggies button-free so they are suitable for little babies who might suck and chew on them, and added fun buttons onto others aimed at slightly older children who want more to touch and explore and who are less likely to try to eat them!

Which is your favourite?

The taggies are NZ$10 plus $1 p&p and are available for sale on my facebook page.

Bibs, Dribblers and Babies

I have to tell you, there are times when I am sat in my own wee world in the work room, cutting, designing, stitching and photographing stuff, that I begin to wonder whether my marbles really have finally gone off on a wee jaunt to Fiji and left me behind in la-la land. ¬† Or maybe I’m just getting clucky again, heaven forbid! ¬† But all I want to do at the moment is make things in miniature.

Given I flit from project to project, with the attention span of a demented moth, it’s always a relief when something sells – for both me and the long-suffering Mister Flo who¬†tolerates¬†my mad cap doings and only sometimes moans about the number of pins he finds on the carpet.

Anyhoo, this week I’ve gone¬†berserk¬†making bibs and taggy toys, and I’m pleased to say they are going down mighty well so far. ¬† here are some of the bibs… the rest are on Facebook here

Baby Bibs Galore

I’ve been having a hoot making babe bibs this past week or two, using up all those wee bits of fabric that were too small to make frocks or skirts with. ¬†The bibs with Kiwiana designs have gone down a treat, so I’ve bought some more lovely fabric on that theme to add to the variety. ¬†I also love the wee pussy cat and giraffe ¬†ones – I’m a sucker for animals, as you all know.

Here are a few:

Dog Fancy Dress – part 4

There are no words…

it’s a simple rule –
if you wouldn’t wear it, don’t make your dog wear it

is it a dog, is it two pirates?
ohhh, my sides

you all loved the T Rex, so here’s
a triceratops for you!

Dog Vader?
ATAT Dog – May the Force Be With You

Cerberus
One can only ponder what that poor dog thinks of that!

And there we end for today – largely because my sides can’t take any more.

Feline Fashions – A Real Cat In A Hat (and worse)

Oh my goodness, the can o’ worms is indeed opened and quite seriously upturned.

A friend asked me why the sudden obsession with dog clothes, since I make children’s clothes and do not even own a dog – indeed I’m know as something of a cat lover… and this lead to the inevitable question “Do they make cat clothes?”

My immediate response was to scoff. ¬†NO self-respecting cat – or even a cat with no self respect – would EVER be seen in clothes, I said. ¬†Not ever. ¬†It’s not gonna ha…

Oh Hell!

High Society Cat in a Hat

Your common-or-garden working class (possibly French and/or a burglar) Cat in a Hat

A cat with high expectations of what he will be when he grows up

A cat who has taken to heart the notion that all cats are the queen bee

Who are these two handsome felines?
Elementary my dear pusskins – Sherlock and Dr Watson

May I introduce to you
King Whiskerworth of Paws and Lady Mewlington Scratch

it’s not easy being green…

I am now away to take my medication and try not to have nightmares, although I fear I will fail and the night will be long.

Oh the horrors.

Cute Colourful Dresses

It’s been another good sewing week, and my favourite pieces are these bright and colourful frocks I’ve made.

It’s a no-brainer that I’d fall in love with the giraffe frock, since I have a rather sizeable giraffe obsession, but even accounting for that, you have to admit this fabric is just divine. ¬†I’d like to thank my gorgeous friend Alice for gifting it to me – she is just the best.

Happy Giraffes Dress

The rangoli dress is made from a panel I found in a sale and just couldn’t resist. ¬†I just adore it, not least of all because of the sassy strip down the back. ¬†Wouldn’t that bring a bit of oomph to the cold winter months?

Rangoli Dress (front and back)

If you want to one of these dresses, or want to peek at my other creations, just pop over to mooandflo’s online shop.

Thank you, happy stitching,  Dianne
