Christmas sewing - Eblieh and Eee Eee
This is the one I decided to try - but I machine stitched it - for speed really, rather than aesthetics. Since the pattern wasn't intended for machine sewing there was a couple of places where a number of seams met and they were a little tricky.....but a bit of wrangling and manipulation soon sorted them out.
I also made a couple of wee mice, complete with little beds, for Santa to give the girls. I saw the pattern mentioned on Flossie Teacakes (Florence has some wonderful adaptations including a pig and crocodile). The tutorial is here. The Eee Eees are very satisfying to make - quick, simple and effective.
The photos below show Katie sporting her first ever ponytail (polylail). She was very proud of it, although it lasted all of 5 minutes before being pulled out, and blissfully unaware that she is still completely lacking in proper hair at the front! Her attempts at a 'camera smile' result in this wrinkled nose grimace - which I find incredibly cute but I am, of course, awfully biased.
Hoping you have a lovely Sunday evening and not too much of a shock tomorrow morning.
