The bad new is that I've filled the Vogue 8184 hole by making 60 piggies softie dolls instead. Birthday invitation comes the Tyger's way? Make a softie doll! School fete coming up? Make LOTS of softie dolls! I just can't help it - they are so cute, and gorgeous and cuddly - even if the person making them runs out of polyfill and stuffs the tummy with fabric scraps instead (ahem!)
I'm even thinking of making a Christmassy one, and using it for our angel on top of the tree. How cool will that look? Much better than putting an 8184 dress up there, ha ha! I'd best scoot and get some more polyfill then. Cute as they may be, nobody wants to look at a lumpy angel.

PPS I must say I was very proud of the Tyger - right after I took these pictures she wrapped up the doll without a murmur and the next day happily gave it to her friend for her birthday. I was worried for a moment or two that we might have a softie doll hostage situation on our hands, but all was well.
