September/October brings change of season, and fresh starts and frivolity and seriousness too. So for a break from whipup realtime I am introducing a few weeks of guest bloggers to liven up your crafty experience. To bring you something fresh, and hopefully invigorate you to make and do and be and think! Its going to be a fun few weeks so come along for the ride.

Today I want to introduce you to Jodie from vintage ricrac. Jodie is another fellow aussie gal, an impeccable crafter and great all round gorgeous person. I have been lucky enough to meet Jodie a couple of times and listen to her talk and she is as fabulous and inspirational in person as she is on her blog.

My name is Jodie and I blog at www.vintagericrac.blogspot.com where I make toys and not-toys. I used to sew with selvedges and now I don’t. I wish I had more time to spend in the sewing room.

Hi, I’m Jodie.

Apart from the crazy need to dream up little back-stories to all sorts of inanimate objects, especially toys, I also love the crazy terms given to a group of things. Did you know a group of turtles is called a bale ? Neither did I!

These teeny turtles have been haunting my blog for a very long time. When Kathreen asked me to do a guest post here on Whip-Up I knew the turtles were the way to go! These guys are super tiny and super-cute. You can find full downloadable instructions and pattern sheet [below] to make a whole bale of turtles for yourself. All you need is some felt, embroidery thread and a Best of the 80’s soundtrack and pretty soon you’ll have a party!
