New Little Puppy Made From my "Tototoo" Pattern now on eBay!

This little girl took me a while to make!  First I dyed the mohair using petals from our Bougainvillea plants (this was a lot of fun but very time consuming!)   The recipe is on this blog if you are interested in trying it!  Here's the link ... Dyeing Fabric With Bougainvillea Petals    Then, it took me about a week to make her little face just the way I wanted it only to destroy it with a blob of airbrush paint right on her little cheek next to her eye....very dark pewter airbrush paint.  No fix for that - I did not want or need a spotted dog!  So, a week later, I have the new face - this is Gabby's face and I do like how it turned out!   Next, it took a while to make her little cushion - I really enjoy making the cushions because I make all the flowers from silk ribbons - it's so much fun!   So, even though she was a lot of trouble to make, I really am happy with her!  She's now on ebay through Monday, this is her link if you would like to peek in on her ..Gabby's ebay auction running through Monday, Sept. 23.  Oh, and if you would like to make your own little puppy, here is a link to my etsy shop where the pattern is for sale!  Tototoo Pattern in my etsy shop (used for Gabby)
Thank you so much for taking an interest!

More Fabric "Pumpkins" in my etsy shop this week!

I had so much fun making fabric pumpkins from some vintage fabric that my Sister sent me.  A friend of hers helped an elderly woman move from her home and she told her friend that they may have anything in the attic and it seems that she had stored some beautiful vintage wool, handwoven silk from India and gorgeous silk from the USA.   There was also a bit of hand painted silk organdy and though there are some holes in the organdy, there are still plenty of usable pieces, and all the other fabric is perfect!  So, this weekend I went on a pumpkin making spree!   They are all available in my etsy shop (Booh Bears etsy Shop).  They can be used year round, they are not just for Fall decorating!  I've decided to keep a few for my home, too!  Here are pictures of my latest pumpkins!  I hope you like them as much as I do ;o)

And here is a picture of the fabric used to make these pumpkins!   All so lovely and vintage!
Have a blessed week!

My Sister, Patty Bradstreet, has Opened an etsy Shop! "Seams From Dreams"

I'm very excited for my Sister!  She recently opened an etsy shop to sell some of her beautiful, personalized, monogrammed handmade items including wedding accessories.  She has already received orders for a few items!  I know our Mom would be so proud of her!   Patty makes beautiful wedding/anniversary pillows - taking a photo of the bride and groom and printing it on fabric then adding lace, beading, etc. to the outside of the pillow to create a work of art.  She also personalizes baby clothes.  She makes Wedding Veils, Fascinators, the list goes on and on. She's so gifted!   If you have a moment to peek in on her etsy shop, this is the link ... Patty Bradstreet's Seams From Dreams etsy Shop   Thanks so much!   I hope you have a wonderful week!  Hugs & Blessings, Janice
