Finishes this week

The sewing all comes together eventually. I finished these bookmarks, an easy project with the simple stitcheries backed with felt. The project appears in Handmade Vol 26 No 3 and there are three more animals, maybe next. Some animals that I worked on during the week got their eyes today and are now finished waiting for new homes. The platypus is from the pattern by Kate Henderson of Two Little Banshees which appeared in Australian Homespun in January 2009. The star fish are my own design, I made some back in December for the Toy Society Christmas, I decided this fabric was just perfect for some bright starfish.And because the bunnies are still breeding here there is one more Bunny pouch ready for an Easter gift for a friend who saw the last bunch and decided she needed one too.
What to do with a dull grey Sunday afternoon? More sewing of course. I still have more softies in various stages of production, the process got interrupted last week when I ran out of stuffing! I've fixed that now. I just need to finish what I started.
Hope your weekend is productive and the sun is shining where you are!
Happy Crafting
