Meet Coccinelle the softie

March 30, 2011

Meet "Coccinelle" my latest little softie.  I found a sweet button on a blog the other day that is essentially a toy drive for children affected by the earthquake in Christchurch.  The incentive is being organised by a blogger in New Zealand.  You can check her out here.  I set to work at 9.40 pm to design and make a softie! 

An hour and half later Coccinelle was born!

She is made from brown wool and scraps from my scrap basket.  Her face is linen.  I incorporated the selvage from the body fabric onto the pocket as it was too sweet to throw out!  Thus her name, Coccinelle.

Pictured here getting a hug from Juliette in her favourite spot in the house - on the bookshelf!
Hopefully the first of many hugs from a special child across the seas.
