More Softie Love

When I first dusted off the sewing machine 10 years ago, after a significant sewing break since Home Ec at High School, I made cloth dolls. Now that I’ve been making some softie samples for work, I have got my softie mojo back (there is more to Janelle than just bags!). Today at craft I made this little cutie.

I have just experienced a fantastic weekend away, with some fabulous girlfriends (old & new), sewing, chatting, eating, creating, laughing, staying up too late and having lots of fun. My goal this weekend was to create some new samples for a special craft night we are having at work (Midland Textile Traders) this Thursday night. This is what my Janome and I got up too…

Miss R also asked me to make her a Trefle/Kokka Babushka Bag of her own, with 1 specification - “Please can it be purple”. She was very pleased with the result.
