The Softies Have Started
First softy from me was made this afternoon, a little pink gingham pig.
After tea tonight I picked out some fabric and popped some iron on interfacing on to the back of the fabric. Tomorrow I'll cut out the piglet bodies and their ears & snouts. Then I can sew them all in one sitting and stuff them watching TV at night.
I've picked a commando fabric and a chocolate star fabric for a little boy. That will be 8 little piglets for the hospital and a great start for me.
Found picking out fabric for little kids a bit hard. Not much in the way of boy's fabric. The two greens I picked will be okay for a boy (I hope).
Now my room.........
I have closed it off from the cats and as you can see, it's a mess. Just have no energy left to fold and pack away fabrics I had pulled out and thrown around the room.
As Scarlett O'Hara would say, " Tomorrow is another day"...... To quote Rhett Butler..."Frankly I don't give a damn".
I am sure the cats will find other things to get into, while Pat and I try not to out cough and bark each other in bed tonight.
I love organic gardening, crafts and writing about my pig's adventures. Also I have a HUGGLES For Kids as an ongoing appeal. All kids love to HUGGLE a softie. If you want to make some and send them to me....email me.
