Making Softies from Aranzi Aronzo
My husband gave me the book Fun Dolls by Aronzo Aranzi for Christmas. I can't believe he remembered from the time I picked it up at Barnes and Noble and said, "If you're looking for a gift for me, here's an idea." Anyway, I have made two of the patterns -- purposely choosing two that did not need pattern enlargement. I also made one of the "unmotivated kids" for my friend's daughter, though it still needs a face. I'm often guilty of being a 90%er. I made the whole softie, but not the face. Or, in the case of this dog, I made and stuffed the tail and now I can't put my hands on it to sew it on. Yes, it's a tail-less puppy. Hopefully not a tale-less one.
