My Creative Space: Meet Rubi!

And then she was the latest member to join the softie family.

Name: Rubi Rose.
D.O.B: 1st September. The first day of Spring!
Hobbies: Just being so damn cute.

Doesn't she look so soft, fluffy and hug-able?

My most favourite part of making Rubi was making her Mary Jane shoes. I hand sewed them because they required a bit of a delicate touch! I love them so much I can't stop making these cute shoes. I teamed the shoes up with some thigh high socks to add some character to her.

Here's a close up of her dress, I used some white lace, pink 100% hand dyed wool felt and cute little love heart buttons.

I really enjoyed making her so much that I have started to make a new batch of sisters for her. This time I made a cute little dress with grey wool felt suspenders and red apple buttons, topped off with a classic pair of black Mary Janes.

Rubi has inspired me so much that I am going to make another special one to give as a gift to my colleague's daughter. She loves the colour purple, so I'm off to search for everything purple now! Cheers!
