I know, I know. I am more than a little late with this post but I am cross with myself.
I started out with very good intentions to make the little dog plushie designed by Tania Ho in September's Mollie Makes.
I selected my fabrics. Some grey linen, check cotton and ditsy floral cotton. All salvaged from clothing destined for recycling. Printed the full size templates and cut out the pieces.
I even went so far as to sew a good portion of the dog together, as evidenced below. But sadly, I just couldn't be doing with this project. It was a faff. So fiddly and not at all how I expected it to turn out. So I threw it aside crossly.
Don't feel bad for the little half finished pooch though. Despite having no ears, only one arm and some drawn on eyes and nose, because frankly he was really creepy without them my little fairy has adopted him as her own. I'm glad he won't be lonely.
And to make up for my epic failure on this project I made a little ruffle necklace or collar inspired by the beautiful tulle one in issue 18.
So what do you think? I informed Mr F it was a necklace and he looked at me like I had lost the plot. Sometimes he just doesn't get my creative genius. I think I do see his point but it might be fun to give this one a go again.
Anyway, onwards and upwards. There's always the October issue.
