Time for this week’s (ok, actually TWO weeks) Handmade Roundup!
I love handmade animal figures, and Colinscreatures has some great ones! There are lots of different varieties of sheep available, as well as the occasional cow, alpaca, and dog. I like the way the fiber bodies are combined with porcelain heads and legs to make a multi-textured figure. And it looks like a lot of effort was made to research each breed and make the animals accurate. Very cool!
Here’s a crown fit for a woodland fairy princess! This cute headpiece by PrettyToppings has two rows of felt pine trees, one in green and one in white. A border of sequins and pearls rings the base of the crown and gives it some sparkle. This tiny crown is meant as a baby photo prop, but a bigger one would be perfect for a little girl’s dress up box!
If you want to stand out at a fancy event, this dress by MoLeKuLa is the one for you! The front is a bright, colorful art deco-ish geometric pattern in blues, greens, and pinks. The back is black, with a lovely sheer fabric at the top. Beautiful! I love the daring and playful look of this fun dress.
Here’s a unique piece of kitchen art from Bettinastreehouse. This mixed media artwork is made of burlap stretched in an embroidery hoop, painted in vibrant colors, and sewn with cotton floss. I love the bright, cheery green of the lime, but there’s also an orange, lemon, and grapefruit to choose from. This colorful art would brighten up any kitchen!
