But tiny jackets and satchels for small bilingual donkeys....
Love it !!!
OMG! Reuben is too cute! And very well dressed...
Jodie, Reuben is absolutely adorable, love his name and love his clothing. Please tell us he is going to be a pattern, I would love to stitch him.
Dear RuebenYour new jacket and satchel are quite fabulous. I really would like a grown-up sized jacket just like yours.I wonder what treasures are inside your bag. No doubt, very intellectual material and of course your lunch.CheersJenny
Waaaaaaaannnttt.Shame I can't sew.
You are seriously clever!
I used to have a satchel just like that one!!! Perhaps I am, in reality, a stuffed donkey. I feel a bit like one today.
I love sewing little clothes, which is possibly why they're such a big part of my plushies. :) The best part is figuring out how to make the clothes functional (so the plush can be dressed and undressed) and as close to "real" clothes as possible.Rueben looks really dashing!
Oh Rueben. What a natty ensemble. I can't wait to hear of your adventures.
I have no idea how on earth you manage to sew something that's so teeny tiny! Not only that, but the sewing is immaculate. Take a bow Ms Ric Rac!
You are a gem
You blow my away! He is amazing....LOVE that tiny satchel bag!
pity. There would definitely be a market for grown up jackets like that one.That looks like what I would call a 'patient project'- any tips?
Oh..I love you doing it too!
Wecome Reuben! Now we in the French household want to know which other language you speak..hmmm..we're crossing fingers and toes that you have a little bit of oohlala in you ♥
You are amazing. Ruebens clothes are divine, specially his bag clips!! xo
That's because it's all about the giggle (hee haw). Where the heck did you source those clip whatsits? From the Borrowers?
Hmmm... which language does he speak?
Oh Jodie, he is lovely, and so is his jacket.
Three good things - I have the exact same handbagLove the Elvis-ish hair (uh huh huh).That is the best coat pocket in the known world.
I love Rueben he's looking pretty debonair !Ooh I must be bilingual too.
eeeeeoooooorrrr!!!I'm the opposite. Love a bit of full sized garment construction, but the thought of the itty bitty stuff makes me itch.
Oh he is so cute and his jacket is gorgeous! Which languages does he speak?
I covet that satchel! Please can you bend the rules and make a Lucy-sized one just for me??!Locket x
Hey Reuben! You are a cutie. And you should tell your mum all that fiddly mini-clothing detail would irritate me beyond belief. Give me human sized clothes to sew any day.
Bilingual??? Do TELL!!!
Jodie he is ssso cute love him well done.cheers shezhttp://shez-enjoyinglove.blogspot.com
I love him!!
That is seriously the cutest thing I've ever seen! :) I was in a down mood today, seeing Rueben was such a spirit lifter. he's darling. :)
Love those little buttons! And fantastic color combination :-)
Welcome Rueben!What a delightful new character Jodie.
Hoi ezeltje! Wat zie jij er schattig uit. Zo'n lief klein tasje en dan ook nog zo'n mooi jasje. Je bent een schatje (o:Jodie, please read this to Rueben. He will understand.
I think Rueben needs a story now!! Preferably a LONG one.
Oh I can see I'm going to enjoy this! xxx
Hola, Rueben! Love his satchel and the wee pockets. Another squealable member of your pack...just irresistable!
Of course he's bilingual. He speaks Donkey, as well as Too Cute, a language spoken by all Jodie's Softies and understood universally.
Dear Rueben, could you please tell Jodie that she needs to quit her pesky day job so that she can spend all her time creating more friends for you, (and maybe some pants? with a hole in the back for your tail?) and and and......(Doesn't matter to her devoted readers whether or not she can pay her bills - just wanna see more characters like you with the morning coffee!!)
Reuben is so so so cute and adorable!!!
Speechless........just too awesome....again!
Oh Rueben looks so handsome!
Love it too! You are the queen of sweet details Jodie!:)
I'ts going to be a good year mrs ric rac!!
Rueben is just delightful, Well done Jodie!
Love it too, so cute and perfect.
Rueben looks fantastic, and what wonderfully well made clothes! He would be super as a new pattern, hint hint!!
I am a bit jealous of reubans outfir to be honest. I am on the hunt for a little leather stachel just like that... and who doens't love a green jacket!.he is ACE!!
Rueben is just delightful Jodie!Warmest Hugs,Sandi @ Ess D'Ess Bears and Bearly Sane Studio
If I pretend to be a small bilingual donkey would you sew some clothes for me??????Pleeeaassssee!!!!!!!
Wow, long time reader, but hardly ever comment, sorry. But this has to be said.....This is without a doubt your best softie ever!!!! When will Emma stock this pattern???? Well Done!
totally on the same page as you with this one.He is DIVINE! You're an amazing freak ( I can't believe how straight that stitching is!!) xo
Holy crap! So awesome. Awesome. Awesome.
I'm going to sound like a 2 year old. I WANT ONE! ;) He's so cute! Reminds me of a nicer version of the nasty boy that got turned into a donkey on the island where Pinocchio ended up. (Vague memories!)
What a looker! Love him :) What languages does he speak?
%$#@ me that's just too darn cute!! ♥
Exquisite sewing. That is all. Nic x
Ack! If there ever was a metrosexual donkey, Ruben is our man (I mean ass).
oh oh oh he is cewut. Yes lovely lovely outfitWhere do you get such flipping small buttons and bag thready throwy thingos! (they remind me of my bra strap thingos!)BTW - I learned to crochet today AND I made a granny square - I cannot believe it!
Just gorgeous!! Love the satchel, I want one too :-)
Reuben is gorgeous donkey, with a gorgeous GREEN jacket and such a cute little satchel.And he's Bilingual.Well of course he is!
Is there a teeny, weeny carrot in the satchel?
just to divine..........
Ok, now I wanna know what he's going to get up to... at skool. Er, and are you going to give him trousers too or is he going to be all embarrassed at skool? And is he going to have blades... like Rueben Blades?
Hi Jodie!Yep - small satchells and jackets - just the best!!! Love this little guy and his couture... I'm wondering what languages he speaks?Loadsa love!Vik xx
OMG he is toooooo cute
My BIL's name is Rueben, I call him Ruby. He is not nearly as cute as your donkey, nor does he have as much fashion sense.
He's soooo great!
Perfect for such a handsome guy.Enjoy your itty bitty sewing.
Oh my gosh he is totally gorgeous! And the detail, that stitching, absolutely perfect. Well done :)
They already said it. I agree, and then some. Love it all, especially the satchel!
Blimey Jodie, your stitching stands up to the very closest of scrutiny! What amazingly beautiful sewing and Reuben is quite the most handsome donkey I have ever seen :o)xxx
Want this jacket! How hard is it to mug a donkey? He is so on trend in his chartreuse and rust (well, in Etsy world anyway) - in fact all he needs is a moustache and he'd be on the front page every day lol!
Is it wrong to have the hots for a donkey? Now I have typed it - it seems very wrong - I think it usually involves criminal charges! Love him you have done it again.
