This morning when I got up I was determined to make something other than a card.

I found a photo in my Crafts Beautiful September Edition (page 83) which showed some animals made from fabric leftovers. I thought I would give it a try. Now I don't sew (I can, but I'm lazy ;)) and I am really happy with the way 'he' turned out.

So here is the new addition to the family - 'FRED' named by my youngest.

I cut the fabric in to 2, 14cm squares and the the other bits from felt. The eyes weren't on the picture in the magazine but I added them as I think FRED needed them. I used rice to fill him as I didn't have any dried peas or lentils - and he sits perfectly :).

As I really enjoyed making FRED - you will probably get to meet a few more new additions soon.
