Review: Soto Softies - a blog with more cute critters than you can shake a stick at!
Another inspirational blog by a very talented lady called Maritza Soto. Soto Softies is a blog which showcases the wonderful, and wacky creations that Maritza says are 'the cast of characters for the movie going on in her head'. The thing I find most amazing is that she only started sewing last year, so this gives me hope that all my current efforts are not in vain! Maritza's trademark softie is the 'mini-manti' - a praying mantis which is much more huggable than it's real life counterpart. Her use of vibrant vintage fabrics makes her creations even more delightful, as they take on a life of their own.
This little wood chuck is hilarious with his 'finger guns', and his button-on arms. Soto Softies is a colourful insight into the world of a very talented individual, and one which you should definitely bookmark for those moments when you need to raise a smile. You can also visit (and buy from) Maritza's Etsy store and give a mantis or a wood chuck a new home.
