You may remember that Melissa was having a give-away recently. Well, I was lucky enough to receive this fab pattern from her today!!! I'm often short of ideas of what to sew (that's probably why I make several of one item). This pattern is just what I needed to give me something entirely different to try. I've made cloth dolls, cats, mice and chickens but I've never made a lion or a giraffe before. Also included are embroidered quilts and a bird (think I'll make him first). Thank you Melissa, you are a lovely blog friend!
Next I'll have to choose the fabric, this can be the difficult bit. Here's a picture of one drawer of my fat-quarters, looks very messy doesn't it. I like to keep things hidden away because my craft room would look very untidy if I had my fabric on shelves, not like this blog, where things are so neat and tidy. I tell myself it's because my craft room is small and I have so much stuff that it never looks really nice, I still love it though and spend many hours here.
