There's A Marshmallow On Your Tablecloth

Any idea what this is?

Before I tell you what it is, I have a few things to share. Warning: Make sure you have some time to spend on these blogs before you click any of the following links.

The coloring page I used for a pattern for the embroidery in my blog header can be found here on Non dairy Diary. Delphine has since moved her blog to a new location. Every year, she shares a small calendar to download (plus a bunch of other cool stuff on her blog) and the one for 2009 has cute bunnies on it.

Thanks to Google News, I ended up at One Red Robin where you will find an embroidery pattern for the Little Mushroom Girl and her Bunny. And, check out the Ruby Doll too.

I MUST LEARN TO SEW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jhoanna of One Red Robin has another site that's also worth exploring: Softie Making. There's a link on Softie Making to Cherry Mix which is where I found a pattern for a marshmallow and made one last night.

Here is my marshmallow posing on an old tablecloth.

It's ok if you don't think he looks very marshmallow-ish. Perhaps he's an anthropomorphic albino Tootsie Roll. I didn't quite follow the directions -- you're supposed to sew the seams together and then turn it inside out but my my hand stitching is uneven and messy, so I just blanket stitched the whole thing since it's my favorite stitch.


I was thinking I might need to make him a little marshmallow girlfriend next.

I think your marshmellow looks really cute. I love his smile. I can't wait to see the female marshmellow.
Hugs!

Love him! Now you just need to sew Mr. Graham and Mr. Chocolate. Then they could be a sm'ore.

I love that softie site! Thanks for the link.

He's perfectly perfect. Have you thought about making a giant cup of felt cocoa for him to relax in??

You know what that marshmallow needs, don't you? A Hershey bar girlfriend!

I think felt food is so cool. I spend hours looking at it on Etsy.

Thanks for the link to the pattern you used for your header. I might have to dig out the old embroidery hoop this weekend.
