the cutest little red riding hood


I can't remember where i first saw
this ladies work but i love it!

I especially love the amazing owls she creates from vintage/antique fabrics and garments
they absolutely blow my mind!

whilst browsing flickr the other day
i found this adorable little set of photo's
It is a theatre production by a troupe of softy birds!

"little red riding hood"
the cautionary tale of a little bird in a red cloak and a bad wolf.
please go and see their play
it's sew cute

so sweet it makes my teeth ache!

when i found this vintage pram rattle
i just knew it would become a wreath
unfortunately i'd used my last wreath form
for the halloween one!

so i had to put my project on hold
till i could get to the craft shop

i just wish i'd bought more of this matt pastel pink tinsel last year
but i've looked everywhere i can think of to no avail :'(

So as i didn't have enough to fully cover the wreath
i wrapped the wreath ring in yarn,
tinsel and then this funky pompom garland
and finished it off with the cutest baby blue fawns
except i'm not sure it's quite finished yet?

i'm thinking red'n'white candy canes . . . . . . .

but as it is now it could be christmas or babyshower
hmmmmm . . . . . . . . to be continued!
