I made her little stuffed toys instead, and am quite proud of them. They have been approved by the recipient too!
This is the first version of Soap. I had to make him as fast as I could, Mélie was waiting impatiently right next to me the whole time.
Tickety Tock got legs after the photo was taken. It was handed back to me with a demand for "Toes!"
Slippery Soap has been made twice now - version 1 had an unfortunate accident involving green play doh, so I made a new, improved version. This time I didn't have to hurry so much, so I could make bobbles instead of using beads.
Oh yeah, and Mailbox stopped by too. He's not quite as loved as the other two. I suspect the reason is that he doesn't open.
I have to admit that I'm quite proud of how they turned out!
I've been very lucky lately - I also made a really pretty purple sun hat for myself. Just look! It's a terrible picture, but you get the idea. The dc join in the back is practically invisible, how awesome is that?
