Sally & Magoo

My daughter has been busy sewing yesterday and today and she has just finished her 'Sally' dog.  This is a Ric Rac pattern called 'Sally and Smith'  by Jodie Carleton and especially designed for beginners.  It is a fantastic pattern - all the instructions are well thought out and gives you very specific steps at every stage.  So my daughter was able to read through the instructions herself and understand what they mean.  I gave her a little help in some areas - but she managed to do everything including sewing on the button eyes, sewing and attaching the ears and embroidering the mouth on too. 
I also made up another Magoo monkey (Melly & Me design) just before the school holidays started.  So here he is just hanging out in the cubby house.

I hope you all have lovely Easter!
