I first designed a pattern called “Little Geese” six years ago now. Miss Matilda Gosling is a revised and updated version of that original pattern. I like to think that my softie making skills have developed and improved a lot over this time, and think the alterations I’ve made to my original pattern reflect this. You don’t need a pebble to keep your geese standing firm and tall any more (now I don’t live by the beach I appreciate it can be hard to get hold of pebbles!) and I’ve added some pretty – but very simple embroidery to her neck. Her legs are wired, but if you’ve never tried this technique before then Matilda is a good project to begin with as her wiring is very simple indeed.
Matilda stands 9” tall (approx) and is completely hand stitched from felt.
