well hello, i have interrupted my sewing to show you what i am working on.... we are heading to my home town of Toowoomba this weekend to celebrate the baptism of baby Adelaide who is the first child of my very good friends Darren and Sarena. a little while ago Darren said that they would rather a hand made doll from me over a bought gift, so nothing like me leaving it to the last minute...
i have decided to have another go of one red robins babushka doll. that is my first attempt on the right. i added bells instead of ribbons and i made an absolute dogs breakfast of the base on my first doll, so i have decided to just sew her up as a softie that doesn't stand up!
my first attempt is old now and well loved, she is fuzzy from all of the hugs and kisses over the past year :0)
i have decided to use all the one fabric on the front, which i am guessing will change the length somehow but i will cross that bridge when i come to it. as you might imagine, so far i have hand sewn the ribbons on and i am about to hand blanket stitch the red felt on because i really don't know how to use the sewing machine to do this next step. anyhow i hope she turns out, i only have tonight to finish her as we head off bright and early tomorrow.
have a great weekend, i know i will.
