I saw this chair in an old copy of Country Living and just love it. The chair is reupholstered in car-booted/thrifted woollen blankets and it makes me want to squeal. I don't have room for this chair mind you, but I could squeeze it in - somewhere. Could you imagine sinking into this to do some crafting? Memo to self - keep eyes peeled for some nice blankets when thrifting. The picture lighting was quite low in the magazine, but if you click on the photo you will see it in all it's cuddly goodness.

I am slowly working my way through a to-do list of projects out there in blogland. I have had these finished for a little while but the blue booties keep beating me as far as getting the photo right. So I have tried again and this is going to be my last attempt with them. I hope they have come out okay?
The blue ones are made from a fleece blanket and the pink ones from a thrifted 100% wool skirt that has been fulled in the washing machine. The lining is vintage patchwork fabric.
Enzo like to go for walks
While Enzo goes for his walk, rabbit hunting, sniffing out friends etc.................I get in a little bit of crafting!
I use the time for his walk to do crocheting as I walk along with him (I can't do knitting and walk, it's just not possible for me!) It fills in that empty time when I could be being productive.

I have always wanted to make a 'traditional style' teddy bear and this little thing satisfies my ambition. I drew the pattern for it all completely. She is called blanket bear beacause that is what she is made from - a vintage, felted blanket.
I used the same fabric for my toadstool swap and loved using the material so much I knew it would make a lovely bear. Hey presto.
She stands 19cm tall and would make a lovely companion for a child.
I have listed her in my Etsy shop.
