Some more Boots and shoes and a new arrival

Yesterday I dug out some of my leather look fabric to make some more boots for the shop

I made two pairs of boots, you can see them for sale in the shop later, I will be adding them soon, here is one pair I made for baby George, the 18 inch high brother for Annabell, although they would do ok for Annabell too.

They have cute little felt cat faces on the front and are made from a brown vinyl fabric.
Then I thought I would have a go at making little lace ups shoes, so I drafted a pattern and made a blueprint pair, making notes along the way.

 They aren't perfect , but I will keep trying and hope to put some in the shop when I have tweaked the pattern more.

Earlier in the week there was this little lot waiting to be bagged up and listed in my shop....

...........Outfits for Annabell as they were running a little low in the
shop, I will be adding those today, here is a taster.
Doll's raincoat

Doll's Easter dress
The first one is a raincoat and hat, and also showing the boots I made yesterday, they will be put in the shop sold separately though in the footwear section.  The second one is of a cute dress with an Easter theme. There will be several more outfits for Annabell in the shop later today.
And ...... coming soon to this shop......

Outfits for build a bear!  Sadly the outfits for Cabbage patch dolls didn't do terribly well

But I am hoping that these outfits may do better, one can only experiment and try!
The weather seems to be picking up although last week we had a lot of snow here in Yorkshire it did quickly clear and I managed to get a few plants in my pots on the decking.
Its very pleasant working in my workshop when its sunny as I sit in front of the window, does vitamin D count if it's through a window?  I'm a retired Nurse! I should know!
