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.

    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.

  30. 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.

  32. great site you have!!! nice 2 meet u.Welly, indonesia

  33. 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.

  34. 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.

  35. I love her inner-ear fabric, especially. Of course, Kaffe Fasset is fabulous in everything he does.

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

  37. oh my gosh … what a lovely little one. so fab! mav

  38. So Adorable, very flowery indeed. Totally not E.T. She is much much sweeter.

  39. 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 🙂

  40. She is absolutely stunning! I love that dress (and her ears!)

  41. 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…
