When I Twittered earlier this evening I said that my Christmas cards were calling again...and that I wanted an army of mini penguins tonight...well I'm not too sure what happened, but I haven't got my mini army!!
After that I decided that I wanted to get a fabric fix as well....so I started looking through a new book I've just bought which shows you how to make mini toys....and I got all excited!!
After a flurry of material, ribbon and glue (yes I used fabric glue for the first time!)...I was left with this little beauty.....
......can you tell that I am a little bit pleased with myself?? This cute little dress has a front and a back (althought the front is much prettier!!), it is stuffed to give the skirt fullness and is embellished with a felt flower and a button belt! I've used fabric glue at the top and the bottom, and I've used a blanket stitch down the sides.
Its not perfect....but not bad for my first go!! Practice makes perfect as the saying goes and I'm going to have great fun making more of these!
Anyway, I just wanted to share my latest makes with you - thanks for stopping by!
