Practising with hand-stitching

Today I continued with the felt fawn I started last weekend. The pattern is from the Felt Friends from Japan book I bought a couple of months ago.

I thought making these cute felt softies from this well written pattern books is a good way to practise my hand sewing skills. They are not as neat as I would like but that's what practising is all about I suppose.

Not only do I feel that I am honing in my limited embroidery skill, I am also learning some valuable techniques of softies construction (I was still feeling a bit stuck last weekend following an unsuccessful attempt at a design I had sketched up...)

A pretty relaxing way to spend Sunday!
