This little Larry is super busy with back to back handmade markets this November and December. Having just completed last Sunday at Mathildas I am now busy getting ready for Market Girl. If you are in Perth, W.A this weekend, 20th November, why not pop down to Melville Recreation Centre from 10 -3pm.
Larry will be there of course together with Vintage Kid, Sweet Creations, The Bees Knees Kids plus so many more boutique stores.
Following week on the 27th Nov - Christmas Upmarket - definitely not a market to be missed in Perth.....
then....1 Dec Subiaco Street Festival......... then.........a well deserved break!
Here at Larry we are pleased to announce the arrival of our 'newest babies'. The Marshmallow and the Firecracker Felt Ball Rug.
Thankyou to all fans who suggested all the wonderful names , albeit some a little weird! Marsha and Bernice won and christened our babies with their new names!
If you want to own your very own special felt ball rug baby , preorder yours now at Happy as Larry.
The Marshmallow rug is as sweet as it sounds. Soft Pinks and purples would suit any little girls bedroom. Marsha named the Firecracker because it reminded her of the American Independence Day. This rug will be rectangle in shape at 80 x 120cm and was especially designed with a boys room in mind.

I just found this super easy idea from Pickles, for quickly dressing up a window. Felt balls are so easy to get a needle through and I reckon you could complete this project in an hour. You can buy your supply of felt balls in a variety of colours at Happy as Larry.
I have been surfing the net lately getting ready to decorate my new house taking a special interest in designing my boys rooms. Wanting to get away from just blue I want each kid to have a different flavour of boyhood in their rooms. The older boy will have a more traditional nautical theme of navy and red (hey it was better than his suggestion of Spiderman and Redbacks!) The younger boy will have a robot theme - I love robots and have found such great fabric onSpoonflower.
Anywhoo, for the nautical theme I found this great DIY bunting Lantern (lantern bought at Ikea). It looks incredibly easy and will be giving this one a go. Pop over to You had me at Bonjour for the full details.
And here is the Girly version if you are blessed enough to have girls. Take me to the DIY Butterfly lantern
I was looking for an easy way to teach kids felting and came across this lovely blog Kleas with a simple and step by step guide to felt in zip lock bags. All you need is wool roving , zip lock bag , water and soap.
Something to give a go this school holidays?? I will give it a go with my two sons.
