More felt lovelies

I'm on a roll - another felt flower rolled off the Mollydag Made production line this morning. This rose barrette was made between buttering toast, making Milo & wiping Vegemite off wee faces at breakfast time. 

Thank you Purl Bee for the wonderful tutorial. I'm pretty sure there will be more of these being made soon. I might even have a couple to take to the next Treasure Hunt Market Place - after all, it is a whole 7 days away!!!

Felt Daliah for Sandra




Another daliah whipped up for my good friend Sandra. She is always there to break up my exciting work day with a coffee & a chat out in the shipyard behind Building 19 so when she commented on my Black daliah, I thought I'd make one for her too. 
I really must find some nice 3mm wool felt to try. The acrylic doesn't look to bad but I'd love a heavier, more dense weave felt to work with. 
Then again, maybe I could just make my own felt...?

Look our girls, I see this as a staple birthday gift this year! Put your colour preference in while you can!!!

Pixies in the Park

Our great friend Candy held a Pixies in the Park photoshoot last weekend and our dreamlets were along for the ride. 

She took some fabulous shots of all the babes including these shots of our babes. Photographing 10 children, most of whom were between 2-3 years old was a horrendous challenge and she did a great job wrangling them all.

I hope you don't mind all the gratuitous shots of my dreamlets but hey, if I can't post them on my own blog, where can I show them off!

Into the woods.....Red Riding Hood Cape


Aren't these photos of wee Bonny just beautiful. My wonderful friend and photographer Candy approached me a few weeks ago and asked if I could make her wee girl a Little Red Riding Hood Cape. Of course I leaped at the chance! She and I played around one weekend (with all 5 kids screaming around in and out of the house) with a pattern & by dinnertime the Little Red Riding Hood Cape was born. 

Once Candy posted these photos to her Facebook page, I was thrilled to get two custom orders for similar capes. One has made it's way to a young lady named Millie, the other to a wee babe who is still to small to wear it but I know little Ruby will get a lot wear from it in the years to come.

So here they are, my Little Red Riding Hood Capes.


The capes were made from the most luxurious wool/flannel blend (80/20) and lined with a stunning sunny yellow cotton print. Inside you'll find two pleated pockets to keep all your girly treasures. I did see something (or someone) lurking deep in the bottom of one pocket. Millie & Ruby, I'd watch out putting my hand down in there if I were you!

If you love these as much as I do, I have a special treat! I have one extra cape (shown below) which is ready to ship. This cape would best suit a little girl with a big imagination (age 2-5). Visit the store or drop me an email if you are interested.
