Meet Lulabelle!

This is my monster for week 3 of the willowing class. I named her Lulabelle- not sure why- the name just jumped at me.

One thing I liked about this is that it is all made from stuff I had here. All recycled! Buttons, fabric, ribbon, felt - all part of my stash. Glad it came in handy for something :) Even the stuffing! I actually had no polyfil and I wanted her done NOW. So I took a flat pillow and gutted it! hehe.

This is a detail of her tummy. I am so psyched that my simple machine even did these stitches! The heart is an embossed velvet upholstery fabric.

It was nice to be at a sewing machine again.

Love it! I like the zipper mouth. I didn't have a zipper and didn't want to go buy one. I am making more-how about you? Good luck on your job interview!

She's just too cute! Great job. Good luck on the interview. Of course, you'll get it.

Awww. Lulabelle is adorable!! I like the fabric you used, especially since you had it all around. Good luck on your interview. If it was meant to be, you'll get it.

She is truly adorable! I haven't done one yet, but I will. It's great that you were able to use all materials you had around. OMG - even ripping the stuffing out of an old pillow! How resourceful!
