One Xmas Item A Month

How did you go for the month of April? Did you manage to make something to tuck away until Christmas time? If time stretched too thin for you never mind ... there's always next month.

This little sweetie caught my eye some time ago when it came out in 'Australian Homespun'. A Melly and Me pattern and the perfect gift for a little girl. Dee Dee is my first soft toy and I'm very pleased with how she turned out.




This is the first of 4 soft toys I have in mind for christmas gifts. Now to find somewhere to store them safely.



I'll be popping around later to enjoy your christmas sewing.

Hi Nell, DeeDee is so sweet! I think I recognise that fabric, too? Nothing this month for Christmas....yes, very thin on time, just wish it was so on the body-front, too! *grin* Have a lovely day, Nell.

I will get on the ball for next month now that I have some craftiness back.
