Cherry Blossoms

September 20, 2010

Daffodils and lambs are the classic indicators of spring, but for me, spring truly starts when the cherry blossoms start to bloom.

I was delighted to find this little blossom down our little street - I had to zoom in on the blossom as it was the only one on the tree! (Ok, ok, I know I am trying to rush spring, but I was so excited!) It inspired me to craft some items celebrating spring for my little shop.

I made these little reversible heirloom baby booties from a lovely hand embroidered doilie featuring spring blossoms. The reverse side is a happy yellow spring stripe, with soft corduroy soles. They will be listed in my Big Little Shop on Etsy.

I have also started on some white and pink satin ones which will look almost like miniature ballet slippers. They will feature a spring flower made out of some pretty silky vintage floral fabric I found a few weeks ago.

They are a new design for me so when finished I'll post the pics here so you can take a sneaky peek!
