Mini Kool Kreature – Mini Kréature Kool

It had been quite a while since I had made a Kool Kreature. Yesterday, this little mouse just begged to be born. So I gave her life. She small, about 3″ long (not counting the tail) and 2.5″ at her widest. I wanted her to have a bit of weight so I started by filling her with rice and then finished with Polyfill. She’s exactly as I had envisioned her and I will be a bit sad to let her go but let her go I must! She’s in the shop, if you’d like to give her a new home… … Continue reading Mini Kool Kreature – Mini Kréature Kool

Anonymous Kool Kreature – Kréature Kool Anonyme

I worked on her for three days, a little bit at a time, and I can now present to you Anonymous, my latest Kool Kreature! She is a colourful character who still likes to stay in her own corner, watching and relaxing. Kind of like her creator. If you want to bring her into your home, you can find her in my shop. It’s a grey, rainy morning but I’m keeping my smile on. Things happen for a reason and I trust the Universe to bring me a lot of brighter (and dryer) days soon. J’ai travaillé fort pendant trois … Continue reading Anonymous Kool Kreature – Kréature Kool Anonyme

Kreatures in the making – Fabrication de Kréatures

Boy oh boy, is life keeping me busy! Work, love, work, family, love, work, friends… did I mention work? and love? Whatever free time I have when I’m home, I usually spend relaxing in front of the computer. Not very productive. So I don’t have anything to show and that bothers me. To change this, last night, I took out some felt and my scissors and started cutting shapes to make a few Kool Kreatures. Because I sew them by hand, I can do this while watching a movie or series online (I don’t even turn the TV on anymore) … Continue reading Kreatures in the making – Fabrication de Kréatures

Lazy’s Kool Kreature – Kréature Kool pour Lazy

I played with my sewing machine yesterday and finally make the chew toy I wrote about on Friday. I wanted some embellishments on it but nothing that a puppy could rip out and choke on. So it’s jeans on jeans. I put a plastic bag inside the form and then filled that with polyfill. The plastic bag gives it a bit of a crinkly noise. I hope that Lazy will like her new toy! J’ai joué avec ma machine à coudre hier et j’ai finalement fait le jouet à mordiller que j’ai mentionné Vendredi. Je voulais un peu d’embellissements dessus … Continue reading Lazy’s Kool Kreature – Kréature Kool pour Lazy

Free supplies – Fournitures gratuites

This year, I have decided to buy as little art/craft supplies as possible. Of course, once in a while, I can’t resist a pad of paper or a rubber stamp or (especially) decorative tape. But one supply I easily get for free is fabric. Not many big pieces, usually, but I don’t do big fabric projects most of the time anyway. Yesterday, I received this huge bag of fleece remnants and a smaller bag (in the back, about half the size of the big one but just as heavy) with fabric used for soccer jerseys. Can you imagine all the … Continue reading Free supplies – Fournitures gratuites

Kool Sock Kreatures – Kréatures Chaussette Kools

It’s been over a month since I’ve done a Kool Kreature so I got an itch to get started again. These two are made from sock leftovers (from another project), buttons and felt. They measure approximately 3.5″ x 5″. They are available in my shop, as well as the second whale made last month. Ça fait plus d’un mois que j’ai fait une Kréature Kool alors j’ai eu le goût de m’y remettre. Ces deux-ci sont faites de restant de bas (provenant d’un autre projet), de boutons et de feutrine. Elles mesures environ 9cm x 12.5cm. Elles sont disponibles dans … Continue reading Kool Sock Kreatures – Kréatures Chaussette Kools

Kool Kreatures whale – Baleine Kréatures Kool

Last week, I mentioned in my art journal that I made my first sale through Artfire. My lovely friend CeeCee had commissioned me to make a grey whale with a red heart on it. Since I had two shades of grey in my felt stash, I made two whales. CeeCee picked the darker one (seen above) and I still have the lighter one (seen below) which will go in my shop but only in August. I really loved working on these. La semaine passée, j’ai mentionné dans mon journal artistique que j’ai eu ma première vente sur Artfire. Mon adorable … Continue reading Kool Kreatures whale – Baleine Kréatures Kool
