Back in 2010 I decided I would start sewing stuffed animals and kinda jumped into it. I started making Lovebots out of felt and my sewing wasn't very good. Over time I started to improve my sewing and I switched to fleece because felt just wouldn't last after a few nights of cuddling. My first few Lovebots are pretty much terrible. (Sorry friends and family and anyone who bought one. I was new.)
The only Lovebot I have ever kept for myself is the first Lovebot I ever made. His name is Petey Lovebot and he's in bad shape. His head is almost off, his thread doesn't match, and the felt is pilling up really badly. I have to admit that I am in love with him though. I can't resist his silly little smile.
So the other day, I remade Petey. I used fleece, like all my other Lovebots I make now, and better construction. He looks like a million bucks now! I'm so proud of how far I've come in such a fast year. I really want to work on bringing more Lovebots to more loving homes, I really find happiness in bringing my creations to others.
Love and Turtledoves,
