So, me and my sewing machine are making fabric animals. All my previous animals have been hand sewn (time consuming! but strangely satisfying). Now, I am looking at using the machine, to make the process faster and make them more cost effective. See what I did there- Cost Effective! Like they are actually selling!!
Anyhoo, I am still in love with my machine, and we are getting to know each other. And I think I am quietly morphing into my mother. Which is fine.
|I used some of our original Spoonflower fabric on this guy. I think if I am going to compete in the very saturated handmade toy market, I need a point of difference. I think our fabric could be that point.|
|I used a crochet doily or the tummy on this guy, teamed with upcycled fabric swatches and felt. And he has flappy wings! Eli says, "Hooray!! Good Job, Mummy!"|
|And then there were two! Mum, My lovely In Laws, Nieces and nephews love them too- look how they are all smiling!|
Do you think these guys are a viable product?
