... lol, the sewing machine has had its first outing. I know, I know - shocking :-)!!! I've been cross-stitching a well I'm not sure what but he has the name of ninja panda - it is out of a cross stitching magazine as soon as my youngest saw him he asked me to make it for him so with a little bit of stuffing and a bit of felt and a key ring chain pinched from somewhere here he is:
Now I know he's not perfect but for a first attempt - lol. I did make a bit of a pigs ear of it in that I thought it would be easier to turn inside out from the side than the bottom, but then made the opening to small so had to unpick some and then I've stitched it by hand (not too neatly - oops!!) but its a learning curve - so I know for next time.
He's now safely on Tom's bookbag and can you see his little cross stitched dinosaur button and a badge from when we went to see Sarah Millican - we did get two badges but didnt think the school would think to highly of me considering it says gobsh*te - lol.
Any hints/tips greatly received. Now then what to do, what to do!!
Thanks for looking xx
