A couple of more shots of Sporty Sam going for a run on the grass in his little paperclay boots!

Felting Machine.
What fun these machines are! For any textile/tactile junkie these machines offer a whole new world of possibilities. I have been playing with these brooches. A combination of needle felting and free machining with a little hand stitch to finish off. For someone who loves results within a reasonable time frame.....this has to be one answer! I think they will make great presents - and light to post!

Here is a sneak peek of my doll Sporty Sam who will be appearing in a doll magazine shortly. He's a cheeky little boy who has knobbly knees, baggy shorts and his shoe lace undone. He is a simple pattern with paper-clay boots and ball and could be adapted to wear whatever sporting code you might follow.
