My middle daughter, who’s 9, has been exceedingly busy over the last week or so making her sisters their Christmas presents.
Meet Francesca Fox and Molly Pup! After looking for inspiration on Pinterest, she drew out her patterns, cut out the velvet which she had chosen, then machined the bodies up, stuffed and decorated. Might I add – this has all been done by her – the only instruction I gave her was a quick refresher on the sewing machine. Proud, is putting it mildly! Her sister’s will be absolutely delighted when they open their presents on Christmas Day.
Unfortunately, I didn’t get to photograph the gorgeous Christmas Cards she had also made her sisters using vintage children’s annuals and cutting out shapes for Christmas Trees, Santa Claus etc. She had been flicking through copies of my old craft magazines and I think she had spotted some inspiring articles! I will try and remember to photograph them on Christmas Day and blog them!
