For the Small Joys of Japan toy collection, I am donating these handmade sock softies. As hubby went away for work for the weekend, I thought I would make a softie or two... I promptly invaded the coffee table area...
|First one done! I think he looks a little like a ninja... these sock softies are inspired by the Stray Socks Sewing book.|
|Taa Daa! Finished them just before earth hour, hence the candles in the background... and messy table|
|I wish I could do animation because I imagined these creatures dancing in a circle...|
|Then stepping in single file move...|
|Going off the stage...|
|Take a bow - Thank you, thank you very much!|
Before I knew it, I had three made up and the tips of my fingers were starting to numb as I hand stitched all of these. I didn't mind though cause I like practising my needle work and they have turned out pretty good.
So I will mail them off to Calico & Ivy at Balmain tomorrow : ) I don't think I can get there until next weekend and I can't wait to drop them off!
I am so honoured to be able to help out just a little bit!
