Do you come here often?

I have been wanting to make a simple softie for ages. You guys have seen some of my misguided attempts.
I wanted something without too many bits and pieces that would be quickish to complete. I find simplicity quite hard at times - I always always always want to add more.
This week while I was at work I drew up a picture of these guys and had to hang out till today to get a chance to get into the sewing room.


Can you imagine the fun I can have with these?

How about "I'm a softie at heart". Maybe "show us yer stash".

"I think therefor I blog"

Of course being a bit of a potty mouth , I have already whipped one up that will be a gag gift for a friend. (Didn't pass censorship ). How about some cheesy pick-up lines?.......

"Do you come here often"

Or what about "Your'e Dumped" painful and to the point yes, but delivered by a softie has to be better than a text message or whatever dumpers use these days.

I have a feeling you guys are going to get sick of these long before I do.

  15. Very, very funny! What odd little guys -- I love them. Love to write some gag lines.

    Like, girl: I'm hot. Boy: No, I'm hot.

    Girl: I just got my braces off.
    Boy: Hubba hubba.

    Girl: You're a fireman?
    Boy: Tonight I am, baby.

    (Oy, vay)

    I could go on but I'll spare you.
    Anyway...

  27. I love these little dudes. I think your ideas and getting better and better. I'd like to have one of these on my desk at work. I would have it facing me, and I'd sneak a peek in his mouth when i was fed up - it would cheer me up instantly, especially if it was a rude message :o)

  45. just a thought, is the writing printed on fabric or is it removable paper? That would be awesome if it were removable and you could put your own message in there. Like a mood bear, I need one for my bed that says "not tonight hunni" or "wanna play?"

    ReplyDelete
