I made a commitment, sometime ago now, that I would make a softie for the mirabel foundation. Now I also said that I wasn't going to post until I'd finished a project... but I couldn't help myself. Blogging is the perfect form of procrastination when unfinished projects are getting out of hand. Finally however I pleased to share with you a finished project.
The very generous Leonie from Raglan Guld gave away fabric to make softies with. So, since I'd joked that my third softie ever would be a hairy princess (albeit waxed in all the right places) here she is:
I used a pattern from Embroidered Treasures by Claire Garland that I borrowed from my local library. The hair, whilst taking longer to do than I had anticipated, was fun. I kept imagining a small child playing with her hair as I had done with my dolls. I considered whether or not I should give her a little trim before I sent her on her merry way - but decided against it - leaving that pleasure to her new BFF.
