Please vote for your favourite before this Sunday!

So excited this week to be entering an art competition by an amazing company called Wraptious. I discovered them a few years ago after seeing some lovely coasters and prints by one of their sellers at a craft market and was so impressed by the work I saw I have been following them ever since. (Of course I also treated myself to a few gifts :-)).

They support the talents of British artists but since lots of artists like me would love to work with them and they can only take on one or two artists each year,  they set the bar high with a competition.

I have entered this year’s competition with three cushion designs as I would absolutely love to be chosen. They are my watercolour paintings inspired by a few of your favourite Fit to be loved needle felted animal characters – Fox, Long-eared bat and the Tawny owl.

The competition ends this Sunday and I need your help please to vote>>>

>>>Please click ‘like’ on the cushions below! 

For a limited time only UNTIL THIS SUNDAY (while the competition is running) the cushions are for sale too ! So please don’t miss out on getting one of your very own Fit to be loved art cushions NOW. Just follow the individual weblinks by the picture to purchase. 

Each cushion is vegan-suede and handmade in the UK. Free UK delivery too.

Bat lovers alert!! – I will donate 15% of sale price of the bat design to the Bat Conservation Trust Helpline bat care project. Such a great cause!

Here’s my three original Fit to be loved characters 😀

Thank you so much xx 😀

Needle felted guinea pig (number 3)

May I introduce you all to my third needle felted guinea pig. I made her in loving memory of a beautiful piggie of a lady in Warrington. I completely enjoyed felting her especially as she has the cutest face and wonderful markings!  She has now gone to live at her furever home and will receive lots of cuddles. She is also my first creation to have one of my new ‘Fit to be loved’ heart tags sewn on. 🙂

Here are few photos of her when she was a work in progress. If you would like more ideas on how to make a guinea pig of your own please see my photo tutorials; felting a guineapig and felting long fur.
