I had a fun little commission this week: remember my elephant cushion?
Well, a nice lady bought it from my Folksy shop and she also wanted a matching mobile: she liked the owl ones, but her son's nursery had a safari theme, so she needed a creature to tie in with that theme. We decided on a toucan!
The customer had a clear idea of colours/fabrics etc - all I had to do was adapt the pattern from here!
I'm quite pleased with the way he turned out - I hope the little tiny baby likes him too!

Clever clever clever. Almost too good for a baby room??? Or am I just a bit envious? AxReplyDelete

Sorry for the lack of contact - flipping end of school term chaos as usual!!
Next time we visit (and we will) I'll give you some advance warning.
take care and have a fab weekend,
Kirsty, he's absolutely fab!! I also got hooked on that original bird pattern...I love your versions back in 2009. Would it be ok if I copied you 'Robin' version for my own personal use and as a gift? It's such a lovely idea. Please do say no if you don't want me to, I won't be offended. Lots of love, Amanda xxxReplyDelete

Oooopps, Kirty! So sorry, I've just been reading your archives and saw that you sell the little robins. I'm terribly sorry I thought they were some thing you had made for fun, which was stupid of me actually. I wasn't thinking. Please forget that I asked. I feel terrible about it. lots of love, Amanda xxxReplyDelete
