I mentioned on an earlier blog, that I had been to my favourite fabric shop, Poppy Patch, and had bought some fabric. Well, here is the first piece:-
Yeees - a light bulb moment when I saw this.
|A 'sheep' dog!!!!|
I found the pattern in the March 2014 issue of 'Sewing World' which I bought at half price at Uttoxeter Quilt Show. Not an easy thing to make and this is version 2 as I had the sheep going in the wrong direction even though I spent ages working it out. However I am pleased with the finished toy. The original pattern used buttons for eyes, but I am a real believer in using felt so this is suitable for very young babies after the bow is taken off. Only need to sew on my 'Once upon a thimble' label and he (definitely a he) is ready. I love him!!
