Where is grandma?


The first things I sold in my etsy shop were zippered pouches with different appliquéd animals. I accidentally came up with the design for a swap with a cat lover 2½ years ago :) The pouches still sell well in the little shop in Helsinki that sells some of my creations. So I am trying to provide them with a bunch of them for the rest of Spring this week, before I take on next project on my list (reminding myself to take one project at a time). The wolf is the newest addition to the pouch family. I used Finnish 100% organic felt for the head. Someone requested an animal with a teacup on its head a long time ago and I thought granny's teacup would look great on the wolf's head... Can you spot Little red riding hood on the blue ribbon? It is from Rosa Pomar and it is gorgeous! I ordered some cotton batting from her shop some time ago and had to have some of that ribbon too! While I was making these yesterday I popped in at Kennedy & Friends just to find the cutest little red riding hood, what a coincidence! I admit being inspired by Natascha's illustrations when I designed the wolf, unfortunately her wolf and little red riding hood print is sold out, but her dogs are not bad either...

That wolf is adorable!! I love the cup on his head. A little tea to wash down the grandmother.

Your bike print came and I love it! The detail on your sewing is wonderful. Now I need to get it framed.

Lovely lovely.
"My, what big ears you have grandma!" Said Little Red Riding-hood
"All the better to hold a cup of tea on my head" said the wolf.

Your creations always cheer me up! How on earth did you come up with the idea to make a cup on the wolf’s head? I would love to see a pouch with grandma (in her pj’s in bed of course!)
