The dresses look really cool ! well done

This is the tutorial for the shirring and it worked a treat.

I've always wanted to try shirring but thought it looked complicated but looking at that tutorial it looks really easy ! might even give it ago !

I am going to make these for her  Smiley

They are so easy to make, so do !

she always says "the pigs are laughing at me again".

hahaha I have to turn the sound off when I play !
 I love the pigs, it's the monkeys on the Rio version I don't like !

My daughter bought me an angry bird for Christmas - do spend daft amounts of time playing it when I should be doing house work !!!!
Anyway I decided it needed someone to play with so decided to make a pig.



As with most of my crafting I just sort of made it up as I went along ! I took some photos to share how I did it.
first I made a template from newspaper to get the parts the write sort of sizes.


then cut the bits from a fleece blanket - which in the sales made it much cheaper than buying just fleece material by the metre.


I used felt for the eye balls and nostrils.I placed all the bits out so I knew where they were going to be then I sewed on the eyes first using my trusty sewing machine, then the nostrils on the snout then the mouth.





then I sewed the snout onto the face,



I sewed the ear inside on first then put faces together and sewed round then turned right side out again  .



I put the faces together with the ears inside and sewed all round except for a small gap for turuning,



and then stuffed him with toy stuffing and sewed up the hole.



 I was so easy I had to make another one !!!



Hope someone else has a go as they were so easy and turned out so cute . . . now to start throwing things around . . .

I just love Spooky Pookys yetis so I decided to make my self one. I sort of made him up as I went along using the off cuts from my hat making (another 2012 Christmas prezzie make !!) and raided my felt bag for the other bits. I love how he turned out, hope you do to !
