not quite quilting!

so totally stepping out of my comfort zone, and am experimenting with all things softie- getting ready for xmas and S T I L L trying to finish the nursery, for my now 8 week old son (time flies!)

i love these little felt owls. i am going to string them along the nursery. how totally cute are they.
tutorial via plushka.

and sticking with the owl theme are these awesome sock owls! all thats needed is a couple of sticks, sanded back and these little guys are going to become a mobile to hang straight above mr c's cot. pattern can be found online here

i also tried my hand at a sweet little softie girl for some xmas gifts. i wasnt totally happy with the first one.

so i tried again:

much happier with V2! the face is a whole lot cuter. what do you think?

they are a little more fiddly than i thought, but still pretty fun to make. pattern found here

overall, i am enjoying the almost instant gratification that comes with small projects, and its fun to use different materials than i am used to.

well, thats it for now! of to make some face washers and too cute baby shoes!! stay tuned ; )
