So what have I been up to on the sewing front? Well not much, hence the lack of posting. Mostly I've been cleaning, cooking, un-packing, and generally catching up on all the Real Life (TM) I ignored in the pre CosCol madness & post CosCol illness. Honestly it's been nice to take a bit of a break and re-charge my seamstress batteries a bit.
I did tap into my inner craftiness to work on a fun little project though - my very first stuffed animal. He was made for a baby boy due in September. I, of course, made a few changes to the pattern. I shortened his arms by an inch (so he looked more proportional), rounded off his head a little (originally it had an odd peak) and did embroidered eyes rather than felt or safety ones.
I'm supper pleased with how this little elephant came out - he definitely won't be my last stuffed animal! (I've already spent way too much time online looking for cute plushie patterns... bad Jenny!)
