Sunday Softies

There is cotton wafting about the house in tumbleweeds and scraps of material all over the shop.  I’ve been sewing.  In an attempt to actually use the all the material I been stashing over the years I am making softies like they are going out of fashion ... I have no children don’t know many people with children ... so not 100% why I’m doing this.  Though I have taken a box into work.  When they are all together in a box they look pretty cute.  I might make some pocket money.  I will spend it on drugs and booze, or more material.    


These two little ones are made with some of the Mongolian silk I bought in Ulaanbaatar.  I made them for the two friends I was travelling with.  The night I bought the silk was the same night I ate a dodgy mutton dumpling.  Need I say more?  

This little monster is called Herman the Angry Homo ... for a friend of mine who thought they were cute, so I made his a ‘sour bastard’ one.  He’ll love the OMG ... WTF on the back.




Lastly this ‘Yo Nana’s Tablecloth Toucan’ I invented today ... I think his body shape may change ... but I like this design so far.

I've never made softies (but that shouldn't stop me... before yesterday I could have said I'd never made a bag either!) and yours look absolutely hilarious. I love the idea of making 'toys' with a sense of humour.

That sounds very familiar...the cotton all over the house....the scraps of material. I used to try and be all neat and put my scraps straight into a bin, but it was taking up too much time so now I just clip straight on to the floor. If only I got around to vacuuming on a regular basis everything would be ok.
Your softies look great by the way, I've only ever made 2 in my lifetime, and one of them is still sitting on my bookcase waiting to have his arms and legs stitched up. I keep looking at him and feeling guilty.
