You Gotta Respect The Process!

Morning my little cupcakes, you find me in a sunnier mood and ready to share with you the process of designing one of my felt doodads and at the end of the post a giveaway! And a sneak peek!  Yay!

Let’s start with what’s on telly, yes I have to work in the living room and I have to have the telly on to keep my mind from flying away! So for the last few weeks, this has been absorbing my spare brain capacity……


Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright are phenomenal as a President and First Lady hell bent on furthering their own careers.

So we start with lots of drawing that eventually turns into a design…….


I decided to start with the Chinese New Year character, 2017 being the year of the rooster.

The design then gets reduced to simplified lines and stuck to card………


The tiger balm is omnipresent at WDS HQ as a nice alternative to more painkillers! Then i cut the pieces and because they are teeny tiny I bung them in a sandwich bag……………


I draw round the pattern pieces using a Pilot Frixxion pen that erases with a blast from your hairdryer…….


Except this is where life in blog land went wrong and I used a biro!

Sewing and embroidering commences, for this little girl I wanted a face that was a bit like a Blythe doll……….


Many apologies for the light quality here, it has been a super grey week in normally sunny Sussex!

Finally, when all is done we have this………….


This little girl is made in the traditional good luck colours of red, gold and pink and could be yours if you pop over to our Facebook and like this picture on our page ! All the lovely likers will be entered into a draw for this lucky rooster to pop on your keyring or hang where you need it most!

Finally, there will be new products coming to While Darcey Sleeps, here is a little teaser picture of some phenomenal supplies courtesy of http://www.sewsweet.co.uk………..


Oooooooh who’s excited?

Have a a super week

Kisses
