Meet Saffi...

This is Saffi, one of my latest little softies. I had originally made my friend, Bridgeen, a fox softie and loved her so much I made a mini version of her!! I made a few slight changes to her face, ears and skirt but that's about it. believe me when I say that it was a challenge working with little tiny pieces of felt for her peter pan collar and scalloped cuffs.

I had been wanting to make B a softie for ages and so out came Felicity Fox, Bridgeen blogged about her here.

I have been consumed with making these wee dolls lately, even though there is plenty of other things that I should be doing! I am teaching an embroidery class in a few weeks as part of August Craft Month here in the city, I have loads of stitchin' and prep needin doin! But today I have decided to spend my Sunday embroidering a Jenny Hart Pattern ( the little folk birds from her Dutch-Russian pattern sheet- which, incidentally Bridgeen got me at part of my birthday pressie...  ain't she a lovely friend? ) and maybe watch some terrible movies.... I just love a good corny movie :)

I'm thinkin', maybe a cushion?

Thanks for stoppin' by,  I'd love you hear what you think....

  6. Thanks a bunch JL :) Thats very kind of you to say so... she doesn't have a tail... though she nearly did! It was the proverbial 'logistical nightmare' lol I just couldn't get it right!!! I see that you make cool little softies and stuff have you ever had a 'tail' problem? (lol)

    2. Hey, you know... I woke up from a nap just now thinking about this doll. ahaha. kind of weird, but I guess it left an impression. So anyhow...I came back to look again and saw that you had replied. Is the Etsy shop up and running? Could you pass me a link to it if you get the time. Hope all is well. Oh and I saw that you were on Sew Country Chick today. Awesome!
