I forgot to pick the ‘have a coffee on me’ winners for the last few posts.
I’ve done that now –> so make sure to go back and check if you are a WINNER.
I’m making a ‘softie’ (my kids call them stuffies) from my recycled (or is that upcycled?) wool sweaters. I’m sort of stumped. I can’t decide how to make the body (I’m just making it up as I go along) AND whether make it in the same wool/cashmere as the head and limbs or use a different color, so it looks sort of like clothing. I might have to go searching for more sweaters, all of the colors I have just don’t look quite right. I pretty much have to stick with felt as it doesn’t fray and I don’t have a machine. Any ideas –> links please.
I’ve also decided that I need a sewing machine. That will mean that I will also need lessons. Sewing everything by hand is a bit much. My stitches are not neat enough and it looks kind of tacky.
OMGAWD I’m a tacky crafter. Someone rescue me!
Be back when he/she is finished.
