Do you ever see a creation on someone's blog and know, then and there, that if you don't make that, you will probably never think of anything else ever again?
I had that experience today at approximately midday. I saw in my blog reader that the amazing and wonderful Jorth had posted something, so I popped over to her blog. And staring me in the face were the cutest ever little softies. The minute I saw the little darlings I knew I had to make one for my soon-to-be-born darling.
A quick rummage in my stash, a quick trip out for some felt and filler, plus a few hours tonight, and I have a little babushka for my own babushka:
They are very simple to make - the tutorial link is on Jorth's Blog. The other good thing is that you can use scraps of fabric, with a bit of felt and filler. I think I spent around $10 in total.
I am still going on my baby quilt, which was going to reveal the baby's gender, but I think this bit of baby sewing lets the cat out of the bag --- I'm having a girl!!!!
