romeo and ....
I couldn't help myself. I spent the last part of mothers day kitting up Juliette, since she didn't require the ever ellusive stuffing beans. I'm liking this book. Lots. Quick, simple patterns with good detail. Expect to see more.
And thanks commenters - there seems to be some kind of weird problem going on in my comments page - sorry if I haven't responded to your comment! It always frustrates the hell out of me that I don't get your email addresses when you leave a comment, and often there isn't an email contact on your blog site either, but I do love comments, especially when they tell me you're still tuned in, or lead me to a new blog. So thanks guys, I'll try and answer you as often as I'm able.
**Added later - thanks for the comments about Juliette! For those who were interested in the technical notes, her skin in machine sewn cotton interlock (T-shirt material), her dress is hand stitched lycra, she's stuffed with wool and her face details are made from wool felt. I chose the materials based entirely on what I had on hand. I have sewn toy skins in lycra, and may well have done this one in lycra if that's what I'd had lying around, though sometimes (depending on the pattern) the stretch can distort the shape a bit. These patterns are designed for stretch though, so it would probably be OK. I really recommend the book if you are into toys made from stretch fabrics.
