The project I started the other night is done. Those little white pyramids became the innards for more softies, which needed to be finished in time for a baby shower this morning. Now that I got going on these again, I hate to stop. Not only is there the mental exercise of thinking of how to represent an animal as simply as possible, I also love the added challenge of using only whatever I can find amongst my supplies.
(Though if I do another zebra, I think I’ll pick up some zebra print fabric – the patchwork method was quite laborious.)
Instead of pictures, I decided to make a little video, since most of the softies make noise and some do stuff. The book that inspired me to make these is one of our favorites, especially at bedtime: John Butler’s Hush, Little Ones.
