Softies!!! (and a Bean!)
Well as today is apparently the most depressing day of the year I thought I would post some pictures of some Softies that I have made for my friend and his Daughter aka 'The Bean' (She looked like a little bean at first and the name stuck!)
Anyway I must explain that I discovered blogs over 3 years ago and came across Sock and Glove toys...which I'm sure you are all familiar with. I just couldn't believe how quick they were to make and how cute they were!
Since then I have been given by my boss a vintage sewing machine, and from time to time I wizz something together like Owly who The Bean is with. (My friend wanted a door stop so I filled it with Lentils) and in December last year I picked the knitting needles up and knitted a a couple of things by Fuzzy Mittens (Shes on my blog list) and today I'm trying Crochet! (I just can't seem to hold the one needle right!)
So there we are...hopefully a bit of cuteness (from The Bean!) to cheer us all up on a cold wet Monday Evening!
See you soon
PS Oh I must point out that The Bean does have a real name - bless her!
