Some Witchy Items

I took part in a Beltane Swap on craftsters, as most of you know by now >__<
My lovely partner, Kendra descripes herself as a water witch, and getting to know her I learned she mostly wanted kitchen accessories.

SO I made her this little witch to hang around her kitchen. I was inspired by cloth pin doll, but used Styrofoam ball as a head and empty bobbin as a body, complete with white pipe cleaner for limbs.

The coat is made out of felt, and I've embroidered cauldron and pentacle and teardrops. Dress is made out of lace, necklace with coral beads and the face was drawn with sharpies. The hairs are blue wool that I've unraveled.

Then I made her a sign like those sold on etsy. I didn't want to copy an existing design. And I wanted it to be more personal, so I sketched up her and her little boy cooking up something in their cauldron, watched by their 4 cats familiars ;)

I've also tried embroidering a hand towel. Again my design.
I think I didn't chose the right quality of towel for this project...

And....this is becoming classic in the WWP swaps... A wooden spoon!

Again with a water theme. Her favorite animal is a dolphin, of course!

And I made this little guy for her son.

It's filled with chamomile and lavender :)

And lastly I made her a marauder map pouch :)


  1. Ahhh!!! I love all your stuff. I really need to make one of those chamomile and lavender stuffed plushies for me(oh and the kids too! haha) And of course I am drooling over that marauders map pouch!

  2. When I first saw the Marauders Map bag on Craftster, I assumed it was quite large, like a laundry bag, because of the detail on it. Now I see how small it is, and I'm more amazed. Please tell us the map is drawn on, not embroidered. That would worry me!

  3. Way cool! I love the kitchen Sign and spoon. I'm going to have to craft something like that for me.

    Everything looks great, I hope she loves it all
