Stuffed Toy

This is my first attempt at creating a stuffed toy. He's from a book called "lets make cute stuff" by Aranzi Aronzo. His name is Spritekin. I made him from a t-shirt which I bought at a charity shop, and was rather hard too use the sewing machine on because of the stretchy fabric, but I persevered, and here he is.

I made this simple rosette for my Mum who needed something spotty to wear for a charity event. I used about a metre of inch wide spotty ribbon, and two colourful button, hand sewn together with a brooch fastening on the back, which was most challenging bit to sew on!
