The Family Just Keeps Growing!!

A new arrival for the Big Ocean Little Fish family! Don't get me wrong I love making the wishing owls and then came the Evie dolls, which are keeping me busy but this week we got a bunny too. His name is 'love bunny' and he is here and ready to order. Currently he is in our logo colours but I plan to make some different ones too and of course he will be offered as a custom item as well.

 Made from eco felt and eco stuffing. They even have a little heart tail at the back.

Just like the owls and dolls, each 'Love Bunny' is unique and hand made with love.

She's here! The Evie doll has arrived!

Since my daughter, Evie, was born I became more than a little obsessed with kokeshi dolls. Well, really I think it stems way back as I love a lot of things about Japanese style and culture. So when she left her crib at 15 months old and moved to a 'big girls' bed I had the chance to create a little girls room. Her whole room became a fusion of reds, pinks, butterflies, paper lanterns and you guessed it!! Kokeshi dolls. It seems only fitting then that when I made a kokeshi doll, that she should be named after my little one. So here is the first Evie Doll.

I will be trying different hair colours, styles and accessories with this first batch. Below is the picture I took yesterday. My motivation was I had to pull everything together to send off my craft application form. I even had Evie doll labels made from a great store on Etsy. Hope you like her!
