This week in my Creative Space
, I have been busy making an alien. A happy alien who loves to do yoga. See, he loves it.
My yoga loving alien was almost a huge craft fail. In my mastitis effected state
, I kind of forgot felt is not that easy to turn inside-out when sewn into fiddly shapes like little alien feet, hands or head appendages. I had to unpick all my sewing, cut off the seam allowance, then sew him back up again, this time on the outside, using blanket stitch. I am so glad I could save him as I spent a very happy afternoon, during Zoe's nap time, hand sewing on his face and tummy detail.
Here is the happy alien, right way around, with a little help from my assistant (2 year old Zoe).
My assistant also thought happy alien needed a nappy change. Aawwwww, too cute me thinks.
I am going to have to sneak the happy alien and my little squishy butterflies
out of the house so I can post them to Pip
for the Softies for Mirabel
drive. Both my girls love them, and would happily have them as their own.
Have a lovely Thursday, peeps.
