June has been a very busy month for me. I've been working on some new designs, new sewing patterns and creatures. These three (above) will be available in my online store from 10am (Sydney time) Monday 26th June.
My fox is made from an old (and very vibrant) orange woollen blanket. The other guy is kind of a wombat/bear blend... also made from an old woollen blanket. I'm actually not sure what he is but I like him. I'll just call him a wombat. And then there is a platypus. There's more about him in my last blog post... what a journey. I hope you like them!
I've spent ages trying to perfect my platypus soft toy so that I can offer a sewing pattern with instructions on how to make one. The body is pretty straight forward but the feet and bill have really challenged me. I think I've finally figured it out now and I'm really happy with the way it's turned out, so I should have the pattern ready for you to download very soon. I hope you like it. *Pattern can be purchased here.
I've finally made myself a doll to keep. I think I'll call her Fern. Sometimes I feel sad letting go of something I've put so much of myself into - so I've decided to hold on to this one. I've painted a moody forest inside an old drawer, like a diorama - I'll keep her there.
My name is Margeaux Davis. I'm a doll-maker, sewing pattern designer and illustrator, based in northern New South Wales, Australia.
