Mrs. Perkins!

From here on in she's Missy Perkins! Certainly not old enough to be a Mrs! Oh, what fun I had making her (except for those tiny wee horns!) - what a lovely way to spend a day!

Here she is doing her exercises - not quite as supple as Janet's Mrs. Perkins, but then she has been made by an ex-dollmaker and is pretty heavily stuffed!

Here she is with another softie from Melly & me designs, Birdie! The family are so impressed - I will be making lots more!
PS - Janet, I managed to make our self-set deadline, whew! C'mon, Joy!

Let me be the first to congratulate you on another addition to your family of softies. I just love the yellow mane with the horns. Now that we've done one, the next will be easier, right? Your fabric choices are lovely.

Mrs. Perkins turned out very nicely. Every stuffed animal seems to have a personality all their own.

Missy Perkins looks quite proud of herself, doesn't she? But she definitely needs a friend, of the male variety. (wink)

QUILTILNLG IS BLISSFUL, DI said...

HA--Missy Perkins is very soft looking and so ladylike--well, in most of the photo's at least??? Some how I thought we had til May 28th--Oh well, like I said my Mrs. Perkins is all sewed, she just needs some "body" Hopefully that will be soon and I will post her. So what Melly and Me pattern is next for our little group??? Just, Di

Hello Lurline. I love your Mrs Perkins ... so cute doing her exercises. I found the horns the trickest part too! Have another one cute out and ready to stuff ... a rather late birthday present.
