Animal Patch

This is something I created a while ago, but till Spoonflower came into being, I wasn't able to take it through to final stages. These little iron-on patches are great for customizing little gifts and other things, I've used them on t-shirts, and bags. Available on my personal etsy shop. I'd love to hear your feedback!

Best of all, they are so easy to use - here are the instructions in pictures.

Peel off paper backing.

Place in desired position on prewashed fabric.

Pre-heat iron to Silk Setting.
Hold iron firmly on patch for 8-10 seconds.
Repeat by gliding iron slightly overlapping
prior area until entire surface has been bonded.

Play Kitchen

This play kitchen was made by us for Christmas for our daughter! It was made using a 2-cube wood shelf bought at Joanns, which served as the base, and the rest of the wood elements were cut at Home depot. We are so happy that she loves it!

Cigar Box Chistmas Tree Ornament Storage

I found these cigar boxes on my latest thrifting expedition and thought they would make the perfect storage containers for Christmas tree ornaments! I used cupcake papers as the separators, and put two layers of cotton batting on top to keep them in place. The effect is so winter-y and practical at the same time.

Our Nutty Chicken

We have a chicken who likes to sleep in a tree. About a week ago we received complaints that she was flying into our neighbours yard and making a mess there. So we clipped her wings, but didn't realize how bummed she'd be when she couldn't fly up into her favourite spot for a nap. So we put a ladder into the tree and now she climbs up it and is happy again. Who'd have thought.
