I really did!
Two posts in one day. Wow! Well, its because I want to put the Softies behind me. Close the door on the whole experience. Cause it didn't turn out quite as I'd expected...
Read this post, and you'll understand why I tried my hand at Softie making.
This was my first attempt, in a rich brown cord without lines in it. And nice buttons. But now I come to think of it, I probably shouldn't have used buttons. Something about kide-safe...but I stitched them on really well. And I learnt the hard way that the hand-stitched opening should not be on the curve of his head either.
I love the star on his tummy though!
Softie #2 is so ugly, I'm only going to show you its eye. And I had such high hopes for this fabric!
An artistic shot of Softie #3. She is made of off-white cord with a very fine stripe. With a patchwork heart on her tummy.
Well, a bunch of ugly Softies. But loveable? I'm not too sure about that. At least I tried.
