We then decided that we should make something else and Izzy wanted to make a little hello kitty to hang on her door. We cut out some hello kitty fabric and teamed it up with a cute little pink spotty fabric and I showed Izzy how to pin, tack and then machine it. I actually forgot to leave a hole big enough to be able to turn it out and stuff it and so spent ages having to squeeze in minuscule amounts of stuffing through a tiny hole. Not sure I'm cut out to be a teacher! Anyway the finished product looked good enough and is now hanging proudly on Izzy's door.
Izzy then spotted some tiny little bells in my sewing room and insisted on making collars for her mouse and puppy. This was actually the thing she was most proud of when her brother came home from football and they spent all afternoon playing with them.
I actually made something last week too! A couple of tu tus for a fund raising evening that I am having a stall at soon. I have so much that I need to make. I'm starting to panic slightly. The tu tu's actually look much better than in the photo and I'm really pleased with them.
