The girls and I made felt softies last Thursday. I used the pattern I found at allsorts for the scottie dog. Thank you Jenny Harris! Made mine in black felt, here he is trying on a ribbon collar. I was surprised at how easy it was to fit together. I hadn't made a felt pattern with gussets before. Meg made one with a pattern from a Japanese softies book for a rabbit and Em got a "first sewing kit" from ALEX company all done up in a small orange suitcase. The kit came with pins, needles, thread, trims, and cut out felt pieces ready to make 3 different animals. A very nice kit!
