The owner of the Cabbage Patch doll has her own pyjamas in the apple tree material and with the left over scraps of material I have made the doll the same.
I’ve also made socks/slippers.
I hit some problems when something went awry with the tension or the feed-dog on this more modern sewing machine that belonged to my mother.
I turned to my 40 year old war-horse which has a niggly problem with beginning and ending threads coming undone just a little.
So perhaps both machines will end up in the fix-it shop. Time to consider my options. I’ve felt rather indulged to have two sewing machines but having a second option as I worked on these gifts was really helpful.
I knitted Max, the mouse in 2012 and he lives at my house ready and waiting for grandchildren to play with him when they are here. I thought I had posted him to my blog a long time ago but no he was hiding away in my Drafts folder! So I posted him here today.
The pattern for these “Three Sleepy Mice” was amongst my mother’s collection. A google search under the same name finds an online version. It is a great pattern to use up small amounts of leftover yarn.
Long days indoors in winter can be a good opportunity to sort out those UFOs….
