Making these was so much fun. I used my illustration sketchbook for inspiration so a couple of these are circus themed. I pretty much made these as I went along, which meant a fair few unpicked stitches but I think I got it right in the end. I've used a mixture of LaidOutInLavender's beautiful vintage fabrics and my own fabrics (mostly felt and cut up t-shirts).
I love these fabrics and I love the name Niamh (pronouce Neev). Niamh is particularly soft and cuddly and she dances with joy.
I started Oscar before I got the vintage fabric, so he's made out of an old t-shirt of my brother's. He has wire inside his arms and legs so they are posable.
The fabric on Rosie's ear is just about my favourite frabric of the lot and I only had a tiny square it, which is why Rosie is so tiny. Her lovely ears have wire in them so they are posable.
was made from peppermint fabric so looks like he's in his pyjammas.
And lats but not least, Sydney the waving bear.
