I'm trying to give myself a break on the sewn softie making front. My mantra (perhaps too much prenatal yoga?) is just to keep trying and not to give up. So while I spend my evenings concentrating on knitting projects - I'm trying to improve my sewn creative skills during the day.
The minute I managed to pop out a decent bit of stippling I have been thinking about making a little softie tortoise with a quilted shell.
So meet Cabbage. Cabbage is a delicate girl who likes to watch her weight by nibbling on salad. Lettuce is her favorite!
Her shell is quilted with gold thread because every girl should be able to sparkle just a little.
I rather like her eye lashes (I'm not often happy with faces) ... ... and her little perky tail.With the pattern adapted a little - I think she would make a rather fine pajama case too! (That list of 'what I want to make' never gets shorter ... only longer!)
