I made a softie pattern and it worked!! His name is Charlie, named after baby Charlotte who owns his older and slightly different brother. He's made from soft polar fleece, with an embroidered face and a crocheted scarf to keep him warm
Many unhappy words are said while sewing faces. I find them hard to do well. After a couple of goes (bye bye beady french-knot-eyes and simple three-stitch-nose) I'm happy with how Charlie's face turned out. Thanks to J for suggesting some curvy happy eyes to balance out the downturned mouth.
Next project will be another slightly altered Charlie. Hopefully one better inclined to sit, as this Charlie's legs just want to spring back to straight. They do say third time's a charm ...
