My Creative Space: Perriwinkle Bears

I haven't made any of these Perriwinkle Bears for a while and I couldn't find my original  pattern. So I sketched another pattern cut them all out and sewed all the faces on . I sewed the first one together and it was a  DISASTER. This was the reason for the my creative space tantrum last week . They looked so different to what the lovely woman had ordered- which was 5 like the one on my website/ header that I think the finished one may become either a Toy Drop or a Softie for Mirabel - so not a total waste but still such a waste of time in terms of orders and deadlines etc. So finally success!!!
Here are the ones off to Melbourne.
I am happy with the end result, but not happy with the photos of them all togther, but I wanted to show you never the less. Photo shoot was limited due to the rain... ( which I will stop complaining about because it has actually stopped today!) The one on the top left seemed to have twisted his nose around the wrong way- easily twisted back.

It was nice to make something other than rattles for a change. Now back to orders, 10 rattles and two softies in two weeks........eeeeekkkk...plus I am dying to show you what I have been secretly working on but feel i may never get the chance!!
For more Creative Spaces pop over to Kirstys and follow the links to see inside everyones house.

  12. I think they kind of look happy sitting there together waiting for their big adventure, I wonder what they whisper to each other when no one is looking?
