I have had a wonderful weekend, my husband went on a fishing trip so my boys and I had some fun of our own, we watched some movies and ate popcorn. Then while they were happily doing their own thing I sewed and make these babies.
This gorgeous tilda angel is a sample for work, she came from a kit and it was fun to use some darker fabric for her body than what I have used before.
I had to make her a friend so I made this one for me, I'm still having problems with creases in their necks, this is driving me mad, I stuffed them so tight til you could get no more wadding in their bodies, I snipped the curves when I sewed the shape of their heads and neck but still I get creases. Do you think it may be the wadding? I use a polyester wadding and its a bit springy, but I don't know if that makes any difference. The arms and legs are perfectly stuffed with not a crease to be seen.
Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
The weather here has been rainy and cold all weekend, husband came home today with no fish, he said he couldn't even catch a cold but he had a good time with his mates.
Perfect sewing weather for me though, I hope you found some sewing time.
