We chose colours, make paper patterns, cut out and started to sew. We made decisions between buttons and sequins ... the sequins won, they were far shinier and colourful.
There were plans to give these Christmas ornaments as gifts to teachers, and moments of wanting to keep them. But more importantly there was determination to do it all herself, and determination to finish at least one.
Most pleased with the Chrissie Pud, a few more stitches needed on the Tree, and then a Santa Boot to finish the trio.
I think she did a fabulous job. This Pud is good enough to eat. She tells me the stitches represent chocolate in the pudding as she doesn't like nuts or orange peel so it certainly wouldn't be either of those things! And while I was mainly there to encourage and supervise it got me thinking about crafting a little something myself ... maybe another day.
