I had to stop and share this handmade little fellow — hasn’t he got the cutest face imaginable?


HANDMADE :: I think yes. Especially with feathers.

This took some fiddling to get all stitched up, but I think I’ve got the basic method down. A few more tweaks to the next fabric doll, perhaps, like a narrower body and arms. I do love the felt feathers and the hand-embroidered face; I don’t think I’ll change that for the next one. A lot more fun than folding laundry, although I admit I was twitching a bit knowing that there were undone chores while I was sewing away. :)
