It's another first for me. I joined this swap ages ago, thinking I'd have plenty of time to figure out how to make a softie. I did make this one a while back, but it was sort of free style. The reality is, I don't have much experience sewing with a machine, so had to find something I could sew by hand. I'm so grateful to Turkey Feathers for her little lambkin pattern. It was a perfect project for a first try. Very easy to piece together, and fun to sew. He is now on his way to Norway.
