Daisy Blueshoes


So, here I find myself, finally! I have been sitting on this blog for a long time! I am so excited to, at last, get it started.

I thought to kick it all off I would share something I recently made. So let me introduce you to Daisy Blueshoes!


I finished this little cutie a few weeks ago and I took her along to the little sewing class that I teach on Saturday mornings, the class is for kids aged 7 and up and we call ourselves the 'Saturday Stitches Club'! Anyways, I took her along and asked the girlies to name her, they decided on Daisy Blueshoes, I think it's a sweet name, and very self explanatory, :)





She is completely hand stitched from felt and cotton and stands at around 15". I am quite fond of her indeed, but I suspect she will find herself on sale in my 'soon to be open' Etsy shop!

So who else make softies, dolls, stuffies, plushies etc? What do you love about making them? I love working on all the little details, and the excuse to let my inner nine year old run wild :)




Thanks for dropping by!
