A shirt for Baa and a new 'Little Jelly'

Firstly, thank you to everyone for their comments on my last post, I'm so glad! :D
Now, here are a few little things I've been working on...
Baa needed a new shirt. Although he gets snuggly cuddles, he needed something extra to keep him warm (and stylish!). And, yes, despite his pretty shirt and sweet face, Baa is a 'he'.

It was fun finding little scraps of fabric, binding and ribbon to make his shirt. It doesn't fit perfectly as he has a very big tummy and I also made the neck a bit small (so it doesn't do up at the back!), but I think he's happy with it!

I've been thinking about the idea of making some larger versions of my 'Little Jellies' which I sell in my etsy store; I thought they might be good for selling at the BrisStyle Christmas Market in December. So, yesterday, this little creature came about, I'm not quite sure if she's a bunny or floppy-eared dog...

She is made using old sheet material predominately. She is quite floppy and I think I need to make a few adjustments to the pattern and limb placement if I were to make more of these. I wasn't overly happy with how she turned out but seeing her again this morning (she was just sweetly waiting on my sewing table with her rosy cheeks and little smile ..), I like her a little more - and L was quick to give her cuddles when he saw her. So, maybe she's ok afterall! But I will need to give her a name rather shortly, any suggestions?

My suggestion for the cute Little Jelly is Bellina :-D
Baci!

Great shirt! And as for a name...hhhmmmm...um, Daisy? Bit boring maybe, but that's what first popped into my mind when I saw her :)

Love the names, Baa and Little Jelly! :)

How about Cuddles? That's what you want to do with him/her, isn't it? And what's wrong with a male lamb wearing a skirt?

I love your sweet floppy-eared-dog-bunny! Names? I'm hopeless with names. Hmmm...Ethyl? See, told you! Why not 'floppy-eared-dog-bunny?' Ok, I'll quit now. I'm sure you'll receive some better suggestions. I quite like the name 'Daisy' that Bec thought of. That suits. Baa is a cutie too :)

thank you Ste and Bec - she's been 'christened' Daisy-Bell ... sorry Tracey - I though she just wasn't an Ethyl!!

Yeah, I'm not good at names. If I say Floppsy Floozy, I'll just get into trouble. What about Dotty?
She is very cute. I like the idea of making your soft toys larger, especially for the market. I think Baa might set a new trend for all the little Rams. :-)
