Flowery


I finished Little Lamb on Wednesday afternoon. The man who came to install some blinds for us the week before last saw her sitting on the kitchen table in a semi-finished state and said “Oh! An E.T. doll!”. So I call her E.T. the Lamb and she is wearing her very flowery outfit for last month’s A Month of Softies’ theme.

I used Kaffe Fassett prints for both the dress and the inner ears, as I found them to be the brightest, most flowery option. The head and body are made out of the old velvet curtains from my studio which a friend of my mum’s said was very Scarlet O’Hara of me.

Now it’s back to those pears.

    She looks gorgeous. Kaffe prints are great for flowery projects, second only to Amy Butler in my opinion… Can’t wait for the pears..

    WAY cuter than ET. Also, ET didn’t have ears, duh. What was that guy thinking? I think Emmy TuTu is adorable.

    Scarlett O’Hara…yes, it took a while but it all came back to me. Alternatively, how very Von Trap family of you !! I love the Kaffe Fassett fabric. Have you seen the Lecien fabric range called Le Fleur? Retro and gorgeous. Just like your lamb.

    She is absolutely gorgeous. i am going to make it my mission to buy one of your dolls! My daughter Emily, who is 21 months old would adore them – and so do I!

    She’s lovely. I guess if you made her you can call her a lamb if you like! I like her mix and match prints, great with those stockings!

    It makes me smile to come to your blog and see a new creation –illustration or softy. What does E.T. stand for in this case? Maybe “Ewe Terrific?” No, it needs a better T word. Anyway, good job 🙂

    Any suggestions on how to get started on my own little softies? I would love to contribute but have no idea where to start or what book to look at so I know what I’m doing. HELP. Love your work and all your cool stuff.

    She is adorable with her cute little nose and shy look, but ofcourse she is because all your creations are!! I love Kaffe Fassett fabrics they are so colorfull.

    I used my prize winnings from Blingo (linked as my URL) to buy an ET doll and everyone made fun of me! Why can’t people love ET as I do….sigh. Anyhow, I think its an adorable lamb and I love the flowers.

    How ever do you do all this?! Write, illustrate, craft and raise a squealing little girl!??! you do it all brilliantly, me thinks.

  20. ninth.muse@gmail.com

    Aww… she is so adorable. She deserves to be immortalized as a character. You should illustrate her! hehe.
    Your site is lovely and you inspire me to make little creatures of my own using the little sewing knowledge I have 🙂

    Very cute and colorful! For some reason I especially love her cute nose!
    Isn’t Kaffee Fasset the best? I ordered the greenish fabric a couple of weeks ago and can’t wait for it to arrive…
