Softies has a website! More importantly, Softies has a website that links to the beautiful blogs of all the contributors, like While She Naps, Karvoski, Red Felt Flower and the indomitable Soozs, whose work we have admired in Mixtapezine. Should Softies have passed you by, it’s actually a book that combines various talented people’s designs for knitted, crocheted or sewn soft toys of various shapes and sizes. It is a book that I enjoy ‘reading’ in much the same way as I used to love ‘reading’ the Australian Women’s Weekly Children’s Birthday Party book. I’m never going to make anything from it, but my, aren’t the pictures pretty.
For those more craftily inclined, the book itself has patterns and instructions that allow you to create small furry critters to have and to hold, cherish and love. I note that the website also provides nice wallpaper for you to download – perfect for those like me who will never make anything this cute, but still require eye candy on a daily basis.
