In a little teacup

In a little teacup, short or stout, we’re all different, there’s no doubt! As we get all lined up, hear us shout, variety is what we’re all about! One of the first songs I learned when I was a wee thing was I’m a Little Teapot and it has come back these many years later to inspire my latest children’s collection.
This collections has been so much fun to work on, I just had to share it with you. It is all about animals, all about teacups, all about letters, and all about variety and differences in each of us. The collection is for the little ones, but I hope you find a bit of joy when you see these animals and maybe choose a favorite of your own.
This is the girl colorway.
This is the boy colorway.

I have developed the collection with many project ideas in mind. One, of course is to hope to see it in fabric one day. Another idea I am working on is with Lettering Delights, for you loyal paper crafters. I will keep you posted on when to look for it there.
I am also hoping to provide the alphabet set as cards, and maybe even personalized prints with names for children, these would be on my new Etsy site (though not ready for prime time quite yet, I will keep you posted).

Another goal of mine, for those who love to do needlework, is to have the collection available for downloadable embroidery sets of each letter and animal. This too would be available on my Etsy site.
Here is a sneak peek of two of the embroidered teacup animals I have completed. Truth is I haven’t done embroidery since I was 12, but had a blast trying my hand at it again. I will share more photos and information on this project in a few more days.
So, like the teacup animals, all different from one another, I hope to have a variety of projects and products developed from this collection. In the meantime, I welcome any ideas and thoughts you all have from your varied interests.
