Hungry Hungry Hippo

As promised here is my second softie for Mirabel, more or less finished. Her name is Henrietta Hippo and I found the pattern for her in Sew Hip issue 3.

She is actually quite large at 40cm long and 18cm tall.

I may still add on some eyelashes so the eyes don't look so weird.

The pattern wasn't too hard to follow though I did have some difficulty around the head where the pieces didn't all meet up quite right but the bow hides most of that. All in all softies aren't my favourite thing to sew and I hate stuffing them even more, so back to garments sewing for me.
