My Small World is this week’s shop and it’s the small world of Katie in Chester. I’ve already learnt two things from her shop, the first is freemotion embroidery, which is freehand embroidery on the machine. It’s a lovely flowing style which Katie uses on felt patches.

As well as felt patches Katie’s shop is full of  handmade bears, sewing cases, card cases, brooches, button badges and jewellery.  Here are some of my favourite things, a felt owl brooch…

Meet Alfie, a handmade mohair bear with just one twin brother, he’s a unique and cute bear.

and finally, because I love sakura, a scrabble tile necklace with Japanese blossom.

The other thing I’ve learnt is about Blythe dolls, which are Katie’s passion, and she also has Blythe accessories in her shop. Visit her shop here, and learn more about Blythe dolls and read an interview with Katie here, on the Craft Britannia blog.
