Homemade softies

I have completed an elephant softie for Georgia two weeks ago and I made a couple of mistakes. Overall it was really fun to make! It's not that perfect (one eye is bigger than the other!) but it's made with lots of loveeee! The pattern was given to me by Salihan from a magazine she saw. We named the elephant, Ebbie. Georgia has another elephant softie called Ellie (which was a free gift when we opened a bank account for her). She was so happy after I made Ebbie that she hugged her to sleep and brought Ebbie to school the next day!

Today I have made a dolly for her and the pattern is free from One Red Robin. We named her dolly, Nana. Nana looks so sweet! She sure looks very Asian as I have used Japanese kimono fabric as her dress. I'll try and make more softies for her and maybe in the process I'll make some for myself too!

I absolutely love the kimono fabric you used for Nana! She looks soooo lovely!

Coincidentally, I had just made enlargements of the softies patterns too. I'll try to make one of them this week.

Thanks Salihan! I've got so many ideas on making softies now that I just have to put them down on pen and paper!!! ^_^

The softies look fabulous! I downloaded the pattern for the dolly a few months ago, but haven't had a chance to pull out my sewing machine. I love how yours came out. Great fabric choice.

Thanks Oiyi! I'm sure Melody will love to play with the dollies you make for her in the future! ^_^
