Very Special Ornaments

I've been working on these ornaments for a while now, but they've been top-secret up until now as they were a surprise wedding present...Each ornament depicts a different one of the couple's interests or favourite things, and they were luckily very well received (phew!).
I'm happy with how they all turned out - and it was a lovely moment seeing them all laid out together like that when I'd finished them - but my favourite is probably the camera, as I love proper old-fashioned cameras and really enjoyed sewing this:

LOL I LOVE THE TARDIS!!

Oh and books too. You should start an "elite" line of felt stuffs. For the ones that have super detailed stitching and such. It would be so enjoyable to see them all :)

Thanks for the lovely comments everyone!

Brook - sorry but I don't give out details of my suppliers! I do sell little packs of felt myself and will soon be selling bigger packs too.

Alana Jo - I adore vintage cameras and have been meaning to design a brooch or something for my shop for ages... This *exact* design won't be showing up in my shop but something similar might be :)
