Pepper Pot Felt Dolls

It seems many, many moons ago that I made this little pattern.

The little pepper pot doll pattern has been selling on Etsy for some years now, but it’s one of many odd little patterns that seem to be one off ideas that I had.

Well, in this current situation I’ve been trying to help people learn new skills or get back in touch with old skills. Is delivering craft supplies essential travel?

Well, if you’re starting to struggle with the isolation and a ball of wool and a pair of knitting needles, or a craft kit popping through your letterbox can help you get through one of the tough days of isolation then I think it is.

Our weekly textile group is meeting on Zoom, every Tuesday, 1pm. Email me for the invite, even if you’re not in Leeds, even if your craft isn’t textile based. If you want to meet up on zoom and share what you’ve been making then come and join us.

In the meantime, I’m putting some of my older craft makes on here for free, to help you get your craft on.

Here’s the first, the Pepper Pot doll.
