Handmade Monday 138
Welcome to another Handmade Monday!
This week I had the pleasure of the company of my oldest granddaughter and we did some sewing. Keira absolutely loves using the sewing machine, and this little project gave her some practice in managing awkward curves!
We used the free gift that came with Craftseller - a little die-cut felt reindeer, designed to be stitched by hand. Keira decided to keep the hand sewing to a minimum...but look, she's such a whiz on the sewing machine her hands are blurry!
She still hand stitched his eyes, nose and little felt holly trim. He did end up with a few extra worry lines courtesy of the hand-stitched beady eyes (and some enthusiastic finishing-off stitches) but that's OK - he has every right to worry at this time of year!
I think her Rudolf looks super - he'll look amazing on the tree this year!
What's happening in your handmade world? Has anyone else been making tree decorations or crafting with kids?
