From the super cute to the super creepy-cool! This is a lookbook of my favourite handmade soft toys sourced from Pinterest. I searched “simple handmade soft toys”. With Christmas right round the corner I think its time to plug in my sewing machine and have some fun!
I have been working on developing an on line shop for my work at St Kilda Gatehouse. You are invited… Just click on the picture below:

As I was up-cycling this patchwork denim cushion I used whichever zipper I could find and it happened to be orange. But how cool does it look?
Part of my work is to create a sustainable enterprise engaging marginalised women. A number of our supporters have been donating their used denim to me and so I spent a bit of my holiday time playing with denim possibilities like this patchwork pillow. (Just as an aside, the lovely Jessie from St Kilda Mums suggested I pop down to Spotlight and grab some of their generic branded feather pillows for cushion inserts. Oh. My. I squashed the insert in so the pillow is smaller than a standard bed pillow, and it feels so plush and posh.) Also just surfed Pinterest and uploaded a bunch of very awesome and imaginative products made out of recycled denim. Take a look!
