A chunk of my week was spent making soft toys. Being my first attempt at making them, things didn’t go quite as planned.

Body parts, that I needed, were accidently cut and ripped off the templates. Body parts were pulled off finished toys. (Okay, so it was one arm on one toy – he had to see the doctor, which was me.) Pants were sown onto the wrong side of a body. Bodies were sown together before I realised I hadn’t finished putting things on them. Heads were stuffed before I realised I forgot to put the eyes on. Clothing didn’t line up properly. Muscles in my arms I don’t normally use were used preparing stuffing, and they didn’t like it. Stuffing didn’t want to stay in bodies. (The specialist, my mum, dealt with that.) Et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.

Actually, that was basically all the issues I had. And despite them, it was fun making the toys, and I plan to make more. Plus, I’m still learning, and I’m sure it’ll get easier as I go.

Now, without further ado, my babies. )
