my first softie
So I was feeling a bit ambitious this weekend, and decided it was time to tackle my first softie. Maybe in preparation for back-tack 3, but I kept thinking about it the whole of last week (drawing sketches in the subway, or whenever possible). I had this idea of a mouse pattern, but to make matters more difficult I just had to draw my own, which meant a lot of measuring and fidgeting with paper. In the end, this first attempt came out almost perfect, just how I had imagined it.
Her name is Alice, and she's a cute mousie who loves flowers, springtime, and having pic-nics in the park :-) My plan had been to give her to my friend's daughter who's turning 4 next friday, but A. insisted we kept her, so I guess I'll be making my second softie very, very soon.
