You did a brilliant job Peg. She's lovely.

She is a cutie, Peg. I made one for a young friend's baby shower a few weeks back and must admit that I found the pattern a little difficult to understand with regard to setting in the tail - would have been great to have had a little diagram to help out because I thought it was wrong until it came together!

Allie said...

You did a great job on your first softee Peg, she is lovely!
The trick to making softees is to stuff, stuff, stuff, and when you think you can fit no more stuffing in........do a bit more stuffing!!

Mistea said...

Such a cutie is your DeeDee. Love the colours. Yep, definitely a trick in that pattern.
Well done on your first attempt.
