I've been looking at "softies" on Flickr and finally got the nerve to make one. I find that if I take a break from making Mei Tais every now and then I don't get so burned out. I cranked this little guy out in just over an hour, I'm guessing. That includes me coming up with the patter and finishing him up. Maybe it was more like 1 1/2 hrs, time flies when you're having fun, right?
