Another dose of (softie) inspiration

February 11, 2010 at 5:26 am 4 comments

One day I was looking for inspiration for a new softie project to make for home decorating, when I stumbled upon LucyKate Crafts. I seriously love her blog – so many beautiful projects, great pictures … it’s a great blog to spend an hour perusing.

I fell in love with her fox softies, and was inspired to create my own fox. It didn’t turn out as adorable as hers (she is a professional, after all), but still pretty cute.

Oh foxy, foxy

I have a soft spot for foxes, too, because our Cairn, Netta, reminds me of a fox.

    If you don’t mind sewing with fleece you might want to check out She has some absolutely adorable snugglies. You can download the patterns and print them right away. I have made quite a few of them and they are pretty easy if you use the pins like she recommends.
