My Creative Space.

I'm so pleased that My Creative Space hosted by the lovely Kirsty is back......such great fun to join in and see what everyone has been creating.

Although I have some orders I should be working on this morning I decided to experiment on something new.  I wanted to keep the sad eye theme going ...........it doesn't mean that I only like sad things, I just like the look of the over-sized eyelid. I wanted this item to be washable ( gentle hand wash not tortured in the machine with everyone's socks and jocks), but I had to come up with some way of putting the eyelid on with no raw edges. 
 I don't mind the idea of raw edges myself, I like hand stitching to be visible, I think it gives things a more used look, rustic handmade......I don't know, I just like it but if this item eventually has to be washed........there might be more than a few sad eyes!
 A few cups of coffee later my new little friend has eyelids and a nose........finally starting to get some personality, don't you think?
Now all I have to do is figure out how to attach it to a body!

For many more Creative Spaces head on over to Kootoyoo and say hello.

All I could think was ouchy - looks like form of softie torture :)

Those woeful eyes draw you in...very clever eyelids! Is he a wabbit?

Oh i didn't realise there was so much cruelty involved in eye lid attachment on a softie, it's postively plastic surgery.
Yippee for MCS coming back, ahhhh, love Posie
