I discovered a lovely UK blog a while back called The Linen Cat which belongs to a very creative lady called Beth. Beth works magic with fabric, felt, ribbon and beads - her soft toys are amongst the most gorgeous I've seen.
I particularly love her Lavender Birds (which she sells ready made) and contacted her to ask if she'd mind if if I used hers as inspiration to make a few for my girls.
Beth graciously said yes and here are the ones I made.
I didn't have lavender so just stuffed these birdies with polyfil (they probably could have done with a bit more stuffing).
They look cute either hung singly or in a group, mobile style.
Aren't those pirate mice just amazing?
And, by the way, eek, it's December already!! We put up our tree on the weekend so it's all starting to look very business-end of the year! Hope you have a happy Monday....
