Yeti Softie

 
Meet Mr Yeti Softie!

My husband is a bit of a Cryptozoology freak (proof here on his blog), so I decided to make him a super secret softie for his birthday.


Little did I know how much of a drama this Yeti would be to make.  I ran out of stuffing at the last minute and had to make a quick (but very secret) dash to the shops for more, constantly had trouble with the white fur going everywhere, broke my 3 last sewing machine needles and eventually had to hand sew him to finish it off. Amongst all that, I had a 'certain someone' knocking at my door asking what I was doing every 5 minutes.
  
So, I was really happy and relieved when he was finished, and if I may say so myself, he is such a cute softie (just as well after putting me through all that torture)! 

Thankfully Symon loves him and even said he was his best birthday present ever!


Now he's ordered a Big Foot for Christmas...
