What do you get if you mix a bored 12 year old, Mum's felt drawer & sewing supplies with 5 eyes choosen from the haberdashery shop?
(note the 5th eye on the tail poking over the shoulder)
From this picture;
Little son drew his own pattern and raided the felt stuffed drawer to find what he needed. He did most of the cutting out himself and almost all the sewing. He also realised that some of the original design was too complicated so was able to scale it back. My role was to untangle any knots in thread and to machine sew the 2 colours for the body together.
He's rather proud of it & rightly so and is now planning on making one for his little 5 year old cousin.
Off to watch the celebs embarass themselves @ dancing.
