the finished product

we managed to finish the little doll from the previous post. it is quite cute and of course big sister lil would like to make one too. it is actually no problem for me as all i have to do is draw the outline and thread needles. unlike a pattern which takes lots of prep time, this really keeps them occupied while i do other things.
here is the backing fabric, a lovely paisley purple heavy duty fabric.
and here is the front. i stitched the bow eyes and hair. Mia added the red cheeks, i then did a quick straight stitch around the outside and popped a bit of fill inside.
Claudia loves her, i guess i better whip one up for her tonight.
and here is the stitcher herself! she is already talking about painting something tomorrow....
i am so proud of her little stitches, click on the pictures to enlarge them and have a great long weekend (if you live in Queensland that is)

  5. Hello Hunni

    What a clever little stitcher, I think Mummy must be very proud!
    Thank you so much for the advice on linking, I will give it a go later, just on my way to a birthday Party.
    As for the swap, i'm quite happy to have 2 swap buddies (it keeps me occupied 'hehe') and i've already been in contact with them so I don't want to mess anyone around but I would love to buddy up with you if you're up for it.
    Hey, what difference is one more going to make lol! Jess is quite keen for me to swap with you too, perhaps we can get the children involved. I'll leave it up to you sweetie x

    Love and big ((hugs))

    How Old is she Rosey??
    I am always wanting to do stuff with the girls but it always ends up something super messy which takes the joy off it all abit!

  8. How lovely to see the little ones crafting instead of watching tv.
