Softies trio

To give you an idea of scale, my hubby photographed my first three softies together. Note that the dog sits on a standard pin cushion.

I just bought a book on softies that is fantastic: Softies: Simple Instructions for 25 Plush Pals by Therese Laskey

This book is loaded with great ideas and I made my second softie following the dog pattern and embellished it with embroidery. I took the idea for the eye from the rabbit doll in Laskey’s book – it includes a seed bead.
