Yesterday I went to my post box to discover yet another parcel in the post. But, this wasn't one which I was expecting.
Nell had sent me a couple of her books on doll making. They are so cute and provide a lot of inspiration on how to construct doll bodies and make tiny clothes. Thanks Nell!
I first met Nell through a scrap swap organised by Melly and Me. Nell sent me some beautiful scrap fabric to add to my scrap fabric stash and I did the same. This is what I received from Nell ...
Nell also set me a softie challenge. She included a separate parcel of fabrics (the ones tied by the pink bow). Make a softie out of the fabrics supplied.
This is what I came up with...
I also whipped up one of my favourite softie patterns with the left over fabric, and added some of my own.
Miss Polly (on the left) and Beetle Bug went to live with Nell. Miss Pilly Polly (on the right) supervises me in my sewing room.
I can't wait to buy the next volume More Softies.
