This is "Ooshka" the Babushka and the "Hello Birdy" Pillow. They're samples I made from fabulous new patterns and kits by the lovely Lisa of theredthread (posted about here). The patterns and kits will be available at LIsa's stand at the Stitches & Craft Show so if you're in Melbourne and dropping in to the show you'd definitely want to check them out!
Both patterns were such fun to make. Easy and yet totally customisable so you can go to town choosing fabric and adding bits and pieces to make them unique. Also, unlike smaller softies, the larger size of these patterns makes those usually tricky curves a total cinch to sew, stuff and close. They make a great impact in a room as well.
