Bailey Monster

A long, long time ago, Misha and I saw the Uglydolls for the first time and, smitten, decided to make some of our own out of fleece. The ideas were good, but without too much follow-through. Case in point: I've had the shape of this stuffie hanging out around the house for probably... oh, let's say five years. Seriously. Talk about a work-in-progress. But with some eyes, freckles, and a little shoes and skirt combo, she's Bailey, the monster who'd love to be a dancer. She is somewhat concerned, however, that her natural plumpness puts her at a disadvantage. Bailey is going to be a present for a good friend. Shh, don't tell.

Anna,
These are reminiscent of some toys I saw on Danish Bohemia, an eclectic site with crafts, artisan pieces, etc. Bailey is MUCH cuter and of course has much more flair!
