more softies...


It was such a thrill to see Blossom Bunny in Softies, so I was just as excited to be asked to contribute to More Softies which has just been released by Penguin Books.


I had been wanting to make Miss A her own Princess and the Pea playset, so developing a simplified pattern for the book provided the perfect opportunity to actually get one made... you know there is nothing like a deadline to get things moving along!


More Softies has lots of wonderful patterns designed by some very talented crafters. There is also a dedicated Softies website with bonus patterns, wallpapers and an album to upload picures of toys made from the books.

Do pop over and take a look, and please let me know if you happen to make your own Princess & the Pea...
