Softie for Mirabel

Every year Meet me at Mikes organises a fundraising event where lots of makers and sewers send in their soft toy creations which are donated to the children of the Mirabel foundation (more info on how to join in here).

Last years effort was pretty miserable and still not finished so this year I am determined to make and finish something to send in for a good cause.

Last night I was inspired to start my Softie for Mirable project and below are some of the process images. Thankfully my friend Thouraya sent me this pattern by Hop Skip Jump a while ago which i adapted a little bit because i'm not that good at following patterns so did a few bodgy things that are thankfully hidden under that clothing!

All she needs now is a cardy, something for the hair and some shoes!


  1. Aw... this is so pretty. Thanks for sharing the process pics, too.

  2. She is so beautiful... I love the jeans

  3. thanks Ammie and Olivia! Hopefully she will find her way to someone special and make them happy.

  4. she is so pretty! i LOVE her eyes. and she will no doubt make someone very happy!
    really hoping i get time to participate this year - i love this project, it's what got me back in to making softies after a long break x
