Busy, busy – but not to busy to show off my newest creation. This is my first stuffed toy (really a toy for grownups) and is made from bits and pieces of unwanted fabrics, old doilies etc, that people have given me or I have found in charity shops. She was a learning curve that’s for sure as I only went to trusty google after I had made lots of mistakes. Such as – always, always pin your pieces together before both cutting and sewing! (which meant going out and buying pins as our boxes haven’t arrived yet). And for gods sake CONCENTRATE! – and then you won’t sew the toes up the side or the ears around the wrong way. Really this is a credit to my ability to unpick seams. 🙂
I also need to mention that the reason why she is a bit lumpy is because I don’t have any proper soft filling yet and so she is stuffed with socks and balls of wool – just so I could show her to you all.
