Bobo - box
Today I made two fabric boxes with sarubobo plush.

When I make new items, I usually make two or three ones because to reduce the cost. It takes less time than making only one item.

But this time, I made a mistake. (* - *)

I wanted to put this purple flower printed fabric on the purple gingham check!

I wanted to put this red flower printed fabric on the red gingham!!!!

I realized it when I finished one box.
I had no energy to unstitch my one hour work...

Then I put a sarubobo plush on each top. I didn't put the little sarubobo on the red.

It's my boyfriend's advice. The red one seemed to want something in it's hands.
But now, I feel the purple one lonely.
I'll make other baby for it too.

The red one looks so precious, like a parent holding up their baby!

I love them - the little figures are fantastic - they look deceptively simple - are they?

Wonderful! I love yours sarubobo so much. They look as alive. I think I shall try to do something similar!

I think that your mistake turned out really nice. I kind of like it when you find unexpected colours or patterns in a piece. And that little mama with baby is just too cute!

Dear Mai, I loved visiting your site. It's amazing. I love sewing by hand too, machines confuse me and don't behave. I have spent the better part of an hour going through your pages. I need to do this properly one day, so have added you to my favourites list. Your English is awesome. I am impressed because I don't speak another language. You can check me out at http://ahiparagirl.blogspot.com and today I put in an excerpt based on your page "My dream is ...". You are very generous to share so much of yourself and your creativity here on these pages. I too love simple stitches. My embroidery is rough but I am self-taught and that is ok too. Happy creating and lovely stories here. I enjoyed myself. :)

Hi from Germany!

I'm surfing your site for hours right now! You make so fantasic little things, I can't stop!

I tried the Sarubobo tonight and it did work out fine for the first time. I will show it on my "Montags Macher" link list on Monday.

But your mother with baby is just adorable. Great work! If they don't have a home jet, let me know! ;-)
