This is a tiny sneak peek at Flora a little friend I have just finished making. She is now all packaged up and will soon be on her way as a very overdue thankyou for a good friend. This is actually my second attempt at this pattern. The first time I went at it rather gung ho and didn't bother putting all the pattern markings on the fabric as I went. Half way through sewing I realised that softies are completely different to clothing and much harder to join all the little pieces together if you are just going at it blindly. So the first effort was half unpicked and then completely abandoned to the UFO pile.
I am so glad I started afresh as I am much happier with these fabrics and just love her to bits! I will post a proper pic as soon as she has arrived at her new home.
