Despite my love of DIY, I don't really consider myself a crafter. Thats because I always think of a crafter as someone who makes stuff for the pure joy of it. I am more of the functional/practical piecer together of things - not for the joy of making something but rather because we can't find exactly what we want or its radically cheaper to do it ourselves.
So color myself shocked when I saw this magazine, aptly titled STUFFED, at the bookstore. I was totally smitten. While vaguely aware of the whole plushie/softie crafting trend, it never really interested me as I didn't quite see the point. Consider this my confession of a change of heart because this chic lady walking her dog is awesome. I want one!
Anyone out there a softie crafter? How challenging is this? Will I just end up frustrated with a pile of scrap fabric? Inquiring minds want to know.
What kind of crafter are you?
