These are a few Ribbons I bought to use on invitations and other crafty creations. The thin purple one is a french 'Classique' ribbon that I found at a store in Paddington. I had a crazy 'impulse buy' moment and bought the rest of the reel...I spent a little too much.
These are a few old Trimmings I have had stored away for years. I have only just started using some of them on the Softies toys. I really like the coloured one because it reminds me of the cothes I used to wear when I was a child.
This small Softie was made for my niece Rachel May after she had a not so enjoyable dental experience. Hopefully it will encourage her to have a positive dental experience in the future! (Height - 16cm)
This medium sized Softie was pretty quick to make. I hand stitched his face first, attached it to the brown fabric and then the rest was easy! Foo obviously wanted to be part of this particular photo shoot... (Height - 26cm) (Photographer - Ben Redlich)
This medium sized Softie was quite easy to make. The hardest part was sewing the straight stitch evenly from each of the mouth stitches. I managed to find some large rickrack to use for the waves which was perfect! I like the simple design and how effective it is when it's completed. (Height - 25cm)
Hello, my name is Carmel and I love all things uniquely designed and handmade. A friend of mine gave me a 'Softies' book a few years ago so I decided to give some of the projects a go. I have made a few soft toys from it now so I thought it would be easier to upload photos of them to a Blog to show people what I'm currently working on. I am really inspired by other artists and like discovering their uniquely crafted creations. Happy viewing everyone!
