Bear finished!

He was fun to make, a friend of mine thinks he looks like a Matthew! Do you agree? Made from vintage mohair throw!

Collage time again!

Collaging again, this time to bless Jill who wrote the poem included with the scripture here. I will take this to her tomorrow, it's a surprise!

I decided that my red fish needed some eyes, so I used these lovely wooden buttons, from a recycled garment!

I finished the button-joined rat!

I bought a lovely vintage throw from Bridport, which was made of two pieces of vintage mohair, and spoke to me with great potential!

this little rat is firmly stuffed and how button joined, and make from short sparse mohair ... I love adding the face features and the whiskers!

The tail is partially filled with tiny glass beads, so ratty can stand up too!

A dusty-pink ribbon and little key charm finish my new friend off! She is looking for a forever family ...

Button jointing and other ways...

Today I am giving a talk and a bit of a demonstration on 'soft toy making' so I've got this little guy to do some demonstrating on. You can already tell what he is going to be, can't you?
