The last couple of months have been rather stressful, I am still not exactly sure why …. but one thing I do know for definite – I have got very little to no crafting done!
I need to get my very basic shop going. This is something which I REALLY want to do, but also something which I NEED to do. Money is tight and my mood is much more stable and together when I am producing things.
I wanted to get back into the flow of things with something cute which would make me smile. I looked at lots of patterns and nothing exactly hit the mark. So I decided to go my usual route and to create a pattern which made me smile.
I have always been a fan of Noddy, partly because my maiden name was only one letter different, and when asked to spell it (which was surprisingly often for such a straight forward name) the answer was ¨like Noddy but with an R¨ so I returned to this favored character for inspiration. Soon after the Noddy boot was created.
This boot is a simple bold red. Noddy´s boots actually had a `hole´ in the front, through which you could see a bit of skin, I decided to add a tongue to my boots as I thought they would be a little warming on a winters day. Noddy also had black laces, I replaced these with white. I tried the black ones, but they just did not have the exact `cute´ factor I was looking for. So here are the results!
