Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No its a ...

Hello all.
I'm feeling more positive today thank you, you have all been very kind. I have a new job so hopefully all will be well, but we're not here to talk about work, no lets talk about this...
Can you guess what it is yet?
I was commissioned by a friend
to make a gift.

A small soft toy.

I must say it was quite a challenge and...

rather fiddly.


Did you guess?
It's supposed to be a racing Go Kart

What do you think?
I'm rather pleased with it.
I can't say I'd want to make another one though! lol.
.
Next time we'll be looking at bunting.

I think cuddly vehicles are really difficult to pull off, but you've done it. Hey, well done. My son keeps on asking for a cuddly tractor. I've been putting it off. Maybe I should have a go. Thanks for sharing.

I think you could make more or less anything with your sewing machine Fiona - you are so clever with it.
Sorry about a couple of weeks of hassle - hope things settle down now - hope also that S is better.
Remember you are always welcome for a cuppa if you are over this way.

Such a sweet, sweet little car, I am very sure the little one who will receive this will love it.
There is no end to your talent.
Happy days ahead now.
