Well, it got me thinking immediately! What a great way to combine the completion of another challenge with the creation another Softie for Christchurch! Of course, as with other projects, I couldn't just follow the tutorial (where would be the fun in that?)
This is what I came up with:
Critical as ever, I would say that the stitching round the eyes could be a bit better, but in general I think this is a pretty good first effort. I may have to make at least one more of these with the fabric the right way out!!!
***Note to anyone else wanting to try applique work- start with squares or simple shapes not curves and circles!***
