I’m still stabbing away at needle felt but I fancied trying something else. I wanted to try to sew something – even though I spent most of my school days trying to get out of sewing classes!
Mind you that was more to do with the teacher rather than the sewing. To cut a long story short I had some old material and an old pillow so I tried to make a doll. In hindsight I should have made a pattern but I just went for it and of course it’s wonky but that’s about the norm. I sewed it by hand because I don’t have a machine (you can tell because of the dodgy seams).
To finish it off I needle felted it with bits and pieces of wool that I had. For a first attempt I’m quite happy with it, even if she does look a bit freaky! I’m quite amazed that I actually managed to make it. I really want to make more things now and I’d love to get a sewing machine because I have a lot of ideas but it’s time consuming (and in my case messy) sewing by hand.
I’m looking forward to my next project.
