In this cold weather I can't really get out to my workshop without freezing my butt off, so I decided to spend some time inside. I have made two softies before so I figured why not try some more. I went looking on the internet for some patterns and ideas. The first softy I made was Texi. I believe there is already a picture of him in the last post. The second was a doll(link is in previous post). I finished the doll the other day. Put a face on him and everything. So now it's off to another project.
I found a doll pattern on the net that I kinda liked and changed it to suit my style. The end result was basically a mix of two different patterns that I saw. Google image search will pull up some amazing things if you take the time to look through them. I drew out what I wanted in my sketch book and then drew out the pieces onto some poster board. Traced them onto some fabric and am ready to go.
So far I have done a lot of hand sewing on my last projects. My sewing machine was apparently a piece of garbage and I lost the receipt so not sure what to do there. I went out and bought an easy stitcher. It's a sort of mini sewing machine. I think it's made by singer. It should be good enough to sew together the doll I'm working on, so we'll see how that goes tomorrow. I might just draw up a small softy to try first so I don't screw up the doll.
All these ideas. I love making things for my daughter. She also loves when I make her things, so it's win win. I'll let you know how the new sewing machine works out. And of course I'll post a few pics to show off the new toys.
