Dooo yooou speeaak whaalee?


Last summer I bought the book 'Softies' by Therese Lasky. Shorty after, i discovered stamp carving and never got to make one of the cute Softies. At least, until December, when i got a sewing machine for my birthday. Of course I had to try it immediately and I made this cute whale. I think it looks cute for a first project. The bird on his head was to small to sew with a machine, so I did it by hand and now it looks a bit like an old seagull, all battered and plucked. i am not sure if they are a happy couple, they seem to be on a different level...

O, wat een geweldige knuffel! Van vilt?

Ja, inderdaad, maar helaas gewoon synthetisch vilt, inmiddels weet ik dat wolvilt nog mooier resultaat geeft, dus daar hoop ik ooit ook nog wat mee te maken!
