Playing with words

Image from My iPhone!

This just about sums up how I feel about making these little blocks.
For a while now, I've been making them and just stashing them away, ready for gifts etc..

Really, they are very leeeetle- look, here's my Whimsie owl next to some.
He looks a bit overwhelmed, doesn't he?

The teeny-tiny blocks measure 2x2cms and are quite cute, I think. Here's some more:

I've also made some slightly bigger ones (3x3cm- ish) too:

And here's a pic of them all together.

They're not quite finished- a coat of matt varnish should do it.

Would love to know what you all think.

  1. Fabulous, I say! They're so lovely. I particularly like the ones where a word is split over two blocks. And the striped ones are so happy. Endless possibilities here. Well done! C.x

  18. Yes, they are gorgeous AND morish AND the sort of thing one would want to start collecting... persue dear lady; you've got a goldmine here in my humble opinion.

  19. They are really gorgeous and you take brilliant photographs that really show them at their best. I'm sure Xmas themed ones would sell like hot cakes on Folksy.

  22. Take heed, they are definitely a goldmine.....what did they say in only fools and horses...'Rodney, we're going to be mee-leon-aires' I say don't give a tutorial and make people buy them to find out how they're done, bu then I'm prolly not half as nice as you ;-) as already mentioned Christmas themed ones could be a real money spinner! What you gonna call your shop? ;-)

  23. I think they're lovely! And I especially love the striped ones! :)

  24. My goodness you are one prolific crafter! I am impressed! Do they take long to make? I'd also be interested in the tutorial (like my to do list isn't long enough already, I want to make your owls first!)

  30. Wow hon, you are one talented lady! Those blocks are amazing. I bet you sell loads. Also wanted to say how much I love your header. I have just started the label process for my makes and it is on a luggage take with a stamped title - spooky! Or is it a case of great minds think alike. Have a fab week.
