Playing Around With Faces

One of my favorite parts of softie-design is figuring out where to put the facial features. It's pretty incredible how drastically the personality of something changes with a slight rearranging of buttons and felt.
My little monkey is crawling now. He is not earning any points for form. In fact, Joseph thinks it looks like he has one leg stuck in a bear trap. He is very speedy however. And man, this kid is attracted to everything dangerous and gross: outlets, camera cords, and Albert's chew toys (the kind that you put peanut butter in!). If he had to choose between playing with a furry fake pony that dances and sings or a phone charger he would pick the charger.
I am sewing quite a bit. I have a lot to blog about this week. 10 more to go until I am ready for the Bloomington Handmade Market. This week I am working on upping the cute factor. I have a lot of middle-aged man softies finished, so it's time to work on a younger, furrier crowd.
