I made this toy a few years ago but was thinking about it yesterday.
This would’ve been one of the earliest softies I made and is still one of my favourites. It’s from The Big Book of Softies As soon I got the book and saw this I knew the child I wanted to make it for. It brings back memories from my childhood of my neighbours and their caravan. Their granddaughter was my first friend. 30 years later we are still friends and I made this for her son. This is a sentimental softie.
I found all the materials and embellishments for it in my stash. It was fun to make as there was lots of little elements to it (applique, embroidery, sewing) At the time it was the most complicated softie I’d made and would still be probably be the most embellished softie I’ve made.
