This little softie was made over a month ago for my nieces birthday and from her reaction upon opening the paper, pretty sure she loved it! I used felt, cotton embroidery thread and toy stuffing. The design was drawn on cardboard first and cut out for the template. The cheeks were done using a watercolour pencil and I like how there's just a hint of colour. I didn't remember to take a shot once it was completed, but around the edges, blanket stitch was used. This was all done by hand and took around 7 hours - granted I was sitting in front of the t.v but I'm pretty slow - I was so relieved at the end!
I have been working on something else this weekend but will wait until tomorrow to post as it's a gift.
It's spring here and today looks beautiful - peace out!
