Alex has received her Back-tack package so I guess it is ok to unveil her.
This was my first swap and I have to say I definately felt some pressure. The rules for Back-tack 3 were pretty intense the little object had to be a 'softie', less than a certain height, black and white with no less than 20% of one other colour, have 5 buttons and the first initial of the person it was being sent to and may or may not be one of three suggested patterns.
To cut a long story short, this is what I ended up making. Alex said she liked her but I get the impression she thinks it is a bit weird.... read quote...
"I got the weirdest softie ever existed, I guess. At least it is in the Top 10 of "Weirdest Softies Ever""
which I am taking as a compliment, I too, think it ended up as quite a strange little creature but I did come to quite like her as she sat on the mantlepiece waiting to be sent. Hopefully she will grow on her and it won't freak out small children.
