I now have my very own sewing machine. The world is my oyster in terms of what I can make! My daughter has a small cloth duck which she has when she goes to sleep at night and I wanted to make a small stuffed toy for her. I trawled the internet and finally found something which looked easy. It wasn’t too bad but it came up too small so I had to size it up by half again (trying to remember GSCE maths!). I managed to size it up successfully and I made my first stuffed toy. A pink elephant. The ears were supposed to be made of felt but I didn’t have any so these are double fabric sewn on. My hand sewing leaves a lot to be desired.
Unfortunately my daughter isn’t interested in it but I was very chuffed at my first attempt!
Time taken: About an hour plus time scaling up
