Valentines omnipoms

Before I pack up the studio for the move I wanted to get the Valentines omnipoms finished. If you haven't met the omnipoms before these are my pet creations. They take a lot long to make than many other of my test pieces for patterns. No two are ever the same and I put a lot of care and attention into each one so they have their own personalitys. These two I've been working on and off for the past month but now they are finished.

First up is Tessa. Tessa is the softest buttermilk yellow. She has a heart eye patch and as with all the omnipoms her tiny buttons round her eyes and on her bum :) Tessa's valentines gift is a cuddly lovely teddy bear. This was crocheted with Pearle cotton and a tiny crochet hook to one of the first patterns I wrote teddy heart. It took 2 days to make but is just the cutest thing ever.

Next up is Sarah, she was lucky enough to get a big bunch of roses for valentines day. These roses are handmade from felt with tiny felt leaves
I love the fabric in Sarah's ears its a ditsy print fabric so the roses are just the perfect size for her.

These will be the last omnipoms I make before the move so I hope you like them. There will be more coming later in the year.

In other news I want to thank everyone for their comments on my last post. I went house hunting on Sunday and have found a little house that is just perfect for my and my kittys. It has a little garden so I'll be able to take my plants with me too. Things might be a bit quiet round here while I'm packing and sorting but I'll try and post when I can.

I'll be keeping the 25% in my etsy shop so use code BARMY1 at checkout :)
