I got this gorgeous ribbon on ebay to use on my cards & realised it was the perfect width for one of my favourite watches that strap had broken. I brought some D rings (also on ebay) & sewed them on one end of the ribbon & hemmed the other end. I'm really pleased with the look :)
I was quite pleased with how this turned out apart from where I stitched the bottom up it's a bit gathered but I will do better next time :) I really enjoyed doing the patchwork & would love to make some more patchwork soft toys (though time is a bit factor). I added some cellophane amongst the stuffing so it makes a crinkly sound when squeezed. I found the pattern & instructions HERE. I used buttons for the eyes and a felt triangle for the beak (all sew on very tightly lol).

I made this a while ago & my son's ex girlfriend wanted it to take on her hols (so I was very pleased especially as it was my first attempt!). As it WAS my first attempt I cut up an old duvet cover to make it but it came out better than I expected. I was hoping to make more but there just doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day.
