Cinderella – a topsy turvy crochet doll

Not posted for a while.  I recently saw a pattern for a cinderella topsy turvy doll, so being one to not shy away from a challenge I took the plunge and gave it a go.  To be honest it wasn’t as difficult as I thought it was going to be – granted it could do with a couple of very minor tweeks next time I make one but overall I was really pleased with the end result.  I also think that now I know how to make the basic pattern with some little adjustments I think I could create other characters.


A birthday card for a Minni Mouse fan

After learning a friends little girl was besotted with Minnie Mouse after a recent trip to Disneyland Paris, the theme for her card was a bit of a no-brainer.


She was over the moon with her card and just as excited to receive her first letter from the postman.  Feels great to make a little girl very happy on her birthday.

Another Frozen Inspired Birthday Card

My friends daughter is a bit Frozen obsessed so what there any other option but to make this for her birthday.


Made with a 13.5cm square card.  I back it with some snowflake paper which I had found as a free download online.  Then with some ribbon, glitter and a picture found on the internet the card came together.

And most importantly, she really loved it.  My friend said it was her favourite card – but that might have had something to do with the money that was inside 😀
