Rudy the Reindeer!

Here is Rudy the red nosed Reindeer! My daughter made this for her teacher - isn't she clever! She chose the fabric, traced the pattern onto the fabric and used my sewing machine to sew the body and legs. She also stuffed them. I finished it off for her by doing the antlers, ears and eyes and attaching the legs. I think she has done a wonderful job (especially for a 6 year old!)- and she really enjoyed making this. I loved helping her too! I'm sure her teacher is just going to love it!
Here is a picture of her and Rudy the Reindeer.
The pattern is a Melly & Me design called 'Rudy'. I am also making up another couple of these as presents for other teachers too.
How is all your Christmas sewing going?

Art Smock

I have been quite busy doing some Christmas sewing (which I can't show you - as it will spoil the surprise) but I have also been making a few other things too. Here are some pictures of two Art smocks that I have just finished. They are made using Kellie's free pattern from her website 'Don't Look Now!' The design is a slightly simplified version of the pattern but I am quite happy with the results.

Now back to my Christmas sewing....
