My grandson asked me to make him another softie monster and stipulated that it be blue. Looking back at the Cloth, Paper, Scissors newsletter that had the pattern I spotted a triangle one so decided to make one of those as well and here they are. They met with approval.
I've seen a lot of pictures on Pinterest recently of felt flowers so I decided to have a go and here are the results. I dye cut circles and flower shapes and stitched them together with very basic stitches and some beads and sequins. Very satisfying to do and I like the results.
A recent newsletter from Cloth, Paper, Scissors magazine included instructions for softies designed by Trixi Symonds and called Zenkidus. I made one for my grandson and I thought he came out looking a bit of a cross patch but my grandson declared he's smiling and his name is Jerry and he seems to have been a hit.
