My First Softie


Here is the softie for the swap I mentioned earlier. The pattern is from the book Sew Pretty Christmas Homestyle. It turned out pretty good for a first attempt. Sewing such small, rounded corners was quite a challenge. The fabric is the same dot print used on the art cards that are also part of the swap package, and I used non-toxic fabric paint for the eyes and nose. The set is going to my partner’s new nephew, whose room is done in baby blue and brown, and she is a big fan of polka dots. Hope they like it!

  1. I smiled this morning when I saw a title of this post. And then a photo loaded – I am glad you’ve made it because the little bear is so cute. I read this today on another blog: Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun. I hope that you had lots of the latter making this softie bear.
