Well, maybe a little bit like Christmas? At least it does in this month's issue of "Handmade" magazine, which is a "Christmas in July" special.
Inside there are lots of Christmas goodies, including my little friend, "Sparkles" the Christmas tree softie.
Sparkles is the perfect project for a beginner softie-maker - he's really quick and easy. Here is how he appears in "Handmade":
The cover of this edition looks like this:
A future edition of "Handmade" will include Sparkles round little friend, "Pudd".
**The gorgeous photos of Sparkles and Pudd on the chair were taken by Megan Slimmon of Seed 3 Photography. If you're in Melbourne and thinking of having professional family photos, wedding photos, newborn photos, kids photos (really, photos of almost anything!), check out the Seed3 website. As well as being a super-talented photographer, Megan is just lovely, and makes the photography session so easy, and a whole lot of fun!
