Day 2 & 3 in Everyday In May

On day 2 of Everyday in May, I started a creation, my long, fitted jacket. What I mean by started was taking over an hour to cut out all the pattern pieces for it. That is all the creating I did that day.
Today, I ignored the housework (I need to do some tonight), and took the plunge into toy making. I created my first 'softie'.
The purple horse is made out of an old bedsheet, some funky wool from my diminished supply (will possibly stay that way also since I am not feeling like knitting at the moment, sewing is so much quicker), and the stuffing from an old pillow. It was fiddly, the horse that is, as there was very little seam allowance. Next time I think I will enlarge the pattern pieces so I have more to play with.
The kids are all lining up for a toy to be made from my tan faux suede! So far they want, more horses, giraffes, puppies, and elephants.
