A little monster

I made this cute little monster for a girlfriends baby boy.

Stitching comments: This was really easy to make. You sew around a shape then cut it out as apposed to sticking to a seam allowance.

Learnt: I went a bit tight around the arm pits, wont do that again!!

Very first Softie

This is my very first attempt at making a softie, think i'm hooked!!

Stitching comments: In my eagerness to make my first softie I used the wrong material. I used flannelet and should have used something that doesn't frey, the face isn't stitch over the edge. So it would have either been better to make the face in felt and stitch it on over the top or use a different material. We sew and learn!!
