This is my first attempt at making a Hello Kitty and it took 3 weekday nights to complete. Why the hurry? Because I have been procrastinating and was undecided what to give my colleague for a farewell gift.
With only pictures as a guide, I guess I'm lucky to get the shape and features right on the first try. The eyes and nose are sewn on and this poses a challenge to my embroidery skills. It would be weird if one eye is bigger than the other. Usually my soft toys uses plastic beads/safety eyes which also saves time.
My colleague's favourite colour is black, so I personalised it so that Kitty is wearing black overalls instead of her usual blue/pink ones. In the end, I'm very happy that she likes the gift and I wish her the best of luck in her new job!
