      • Love the fabrics. Can't let DD see that or she'll want me to make new stockings for the dogs!

          Dolls for a friend’s daughters. Can’t post on Facebook yet because said friend is on there obviously but had to share! Pattern by Gingermelon on Etsy ❤️
          They’re SO much better than the first one I made for DD. So now I’m going to have to make DD another one so that she has a ‘good’ one. Then I’d like to make one each for my three nieces.
          Edit: the hair colours were the choice of my friend’s 10yo daughter. She chose orange for herself and green for her 18 month old sister. I’m a bit nervous about the 18 month old getting the doll, but I tried to make it extra strong to hopefully withstand a bit of love from a toddler.

                  Thank you I had everything measured, cut and tacked and ready to start to sew it together and I realised the sewing machine I had borrowed didn't have the peddle or the power cord. So I'm going to have to wait until next week to finish them I was so disappointed x

                  • I've finally finished the two blankets and two burp cloths for my 3 month old daughter. They are far from perfect but I'm happy with them.

                    On a side note - how do you ladies sew straight? It is so difficult [emoji23] x20200105_102804.jpg20200105_102714.jpg20200105_102653.jpg20200105_102626.jpg

                              Make sure you cut on the grain. Cut straight and neat. Then when sewing use the guides next to the foot. Most patterns use a 1.5cm seam allowance.
