Springtime sewing

We seem to have gone from Spring to Summer right back to Winter, all in the blink of an eye.  We are forecast for snow tomorrow, I can hardly believe it!  It was nice to have the flip-flops out for a whole it'll be back to thick winter coats and cosy boots!

Well, whatever the weather, it is Spring, and with Springtime comes Easter.  You can see here what treats I prepared for Joshua last Easter.  Of course I had to make him a few for this year too!  

I've been really busy lately so it's lucky that I started creating quite a few weeks ago.  The first thing I wanted to make was a Tilda lamb from the Crafting Springtime Gifts book. 

Isn't he cute?! I used lovely soft cream fleece for the body and sweet blue/white polka dots for the inner ears and heart on the tummy.

Tummy detail of a hand-appliqued heart.

For the face, I stitched on the mouth and used fabric pen for the eyes.

I also made up a batch of these bunny rabbit softies - my own design. 

Joshua specifically asked for a red one, so here it is....

I am also having a go at crocheting one of these little birdie decorations from Attic 24.  It's all made, I just need to stitch it up!

My mum has also been busy crocheting some food (fruit/veg) for Joshua - I'll do a crochet unveil in another post!

Usually for Easter I'd hide all of these little bits and pieces in the garden for Joshua to find, fingers crossed we don't have a garden covered in snow on Easter Sunday!
