getting my hobby fill

Hello friends! I hope you had a lovely weekend. I didn't get anywhere with the Bentwood chair but I got really inspired by Amy Moss and her fantastic blog, Eat Drink Chic. Amy has loads of DIY projects (and free downloads) and one that caught my eye were these gingerbread men.

They are adorable and all that's needed is some fabric, cotton, hobby fill, some patient hand sewing (using a blanket stitch) and voila - here it is! It's not as polished as Amy's but it's a start (the head is slightly wonky like someone has taken a bite out of it, oops!). I gave it to my best friend's 19 month old daughter and she seemed to love it! I used chambray fabric and I really love the button! You can buy these individually from Spotlight, along with the fabric.

I also bought polka dot and pink patterned fabric which I can't wait to use next!
