OK, so I already have this book – it is fantastic, but I would love to be able to give a copy to a friend, so here it is, my ‘I made this!’ entry for a competition hosted by Pip over at Meet Me At Mikes.
A month or so ago, after many afternoons of begging, I sat down with girl-child and a friend to make beautiful butterflies, straight from the pattern in the book. Girl-child was over the moon at being allowed to use the sewing machine. She did all her own tracing and cutting, hand stitching and machine stitching. All I was required to do was to sew the front of the body to the back of the body so she could turn it through ready for stuffing. She was so proud to make her very own soft toy.
The finished product – Bubbles.
