More softie monsters

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.

Felt Flowers

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.

Jerry softie

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.
