I know I have been quiet for a while (did you miss me - no don’t answer that lol). I’ve been having a puppet building break and taking time to do some of the other crafty things on my list, and as usual the run up to Christmas is crammed with things to do. I thought I’d share some of the finished results. These are all items going to the church Christmas fair for fundraising.
just a quick note to say my order book is closed until after September. I am having a break from puppets for a while (other than the four I am doing at the moment) to do some other projects. The main one is to have a go at doing recycled/repurposed outfits with a 'growth' theme alongside other local sewing enthusiasts and led by Oxfam Darlington. The outfits will be part of the fashion show at the Festival of Thrift in September. I am just waiting to find out what season I will be doing!
It's good to have a day when I can sit and sew completely. I am currently sewing nostrils on a couple of Maggies before pinning in the mouths. I have also tacked the ends of some legs in and pinned linings to bodies so I can get them all done on the machine in one fell swoop. Love bank holidays 😍
