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 ; )
