|Santa's Little Helpers - Jody's Crafty Creations, from the Cookies and Cream Craft Christmas Club|
I am happy with how these two turned out although I made some mistakes along the way! I forgot to iron pellon onto the legs so their legs are probably floppier than they should be, and I had drawn their faces from the pattern before I sewed their heads and they ended skewed! To fix this I painted over their skin but then decided I wouldn't be able to embroider their faces as the pattern said, so they got simple drawn faces and a bit of blusher. They are happily packed away until it is time to decorate for Christmas, and just in time too, because yesterday I received my September pattern for the Cookies and Cream Craft Christmas Club.
It is the last day of August today and it is beginning to look like spring in the garden.
Happy stitching, Wendy
