I’m a big Softie


Rosy_monkeyI Rosy_face_detail_1am – REALLY – this weekend was spent recycling interesting old clothes into ‘Softies’ for my Grandies for Christmas……it was really lots of fun……..I have a background in cloth doll making, & I really found the ‘whimsical’ side of creating these little creatures really fun.  Rosy Monkey is a real mischief – she has a tummy made from a scarf, her arms, ears & tail made from an old jumper, her inner ears & back of her head made from an embriodered doily.  I have used odd antique buttons for eyes & an old pair of cords for her legs.Rosy_back_head_detail_2 Angel_matthias Angel Matthias is a real groover in his red bow tie & antique buttons……his wings are piped around the edges so they can be ‘sculpted’ to shape.  Sorry that the pics are really bad, I will try to get some better ones tomorrow.  Matt_face_detail
