Polly & Patch

Do you remember my little owl Hooty?, well I was very pleased to find him featured at Softies Central the other day, thank you Therese!. A coincidence, as I had also been thinking about Hooty too. It occurred to me that the same body template could be used to make other animals just by using different felt or fabric applique, so I decided to give it a go. So far, I have come up with Polly the cat and Patch the dog, both have little accessories to go with them!.

And here is Patch, with his bone chew toy!.



When boy meets girl.......



Crafting has been thin on the ground with it being the school holidays (as has the sunshine!), but it seems I have a bit of competition. My husband took our daughter down to his studio to make a robot out of cardboard, our son wanted to get in on the act so decided that he was small enough to get into the robot!. He was ok, until he realised he couldn't actually get himself out, and started to panic a bit, but all's well that ends well!, one small boy released and one robot put away until another day.
