Lady Boots.

lady birdsI decided to make a small person who is a huge fan of Violet Mackerel some lady Boots for Christmas. I f you haven’t read Anna Branford’s delightful Violet Mackerel series yet, you have a treat in store.  My favorite is Violet Mackerel’s Brilliant Plot.  I love her theory of small things and love the way Anna Branford has woven encouraging philosophy into a very enjoyable children’s story. Another book in the series is Violet Mackerel’s Natural Habitat. A very compassionate and entertaining story that highlights the need for us to consider the needs of all who share this planet.  As this story is about ladybirds I found a pattern on Etsy here and set about whipping it up.lady brd boots

Then I added the detailslady bird sewing





Next I found a use for one red glove but I have a much more interesting use for it so stay tuned.




Finally I put it all together and here they are. Lady boots fit for a big fan with tiny feet. If I am lucky I might get a photo of the feet and boots together.

  2. Thank you for noticing how different they both are. I secretly (it isn’t a secret now called them Frank and Earnest. Ah yes the single red glove. More on that very soon.


  3. I love that each bootie is a little different – the eyes, the antennae. And I’m looking forward to the chapter where we find out other uses for a single red glove…
