I cannot believe there's barely a week left before the Marks Hall Garden Show! I've somehow managed to arrange to work Saturday, Sunday and Monday at the Art & Craft Centre! My plan is to use the time to sew little thing - birds, mini moose, stuff like that. It never works out well - it's not easy to get stuck into anything when you have to put it down every five minutes to serve a customer (not that I'm complaining about having customers), but maybe a sense of desperation will carry me through.
In the meantime, someone asked me a while ago to make them a luck dragon, so I am going to try to make two - one as the commission and one for the show. They take up a lot of table space if nothing else! And if I'm late finishing them, I can happily sit down at the show and sew a tonne of sequins onto them.
This is my latest bear - Cedric - an upsized version of Bingo and Charlie, from my last post. Unfortunately it wasn't just a case of upsizing the pattern. It required some adjustment, so he took longer than I thought. But I like him - he's very stolid and traditional.
Hopefully, I will be back soon with some more updates for the craft fair!
He is very cuddly looking. Is he made of the same fabric as th others?
Yep - same fabric. It is a bit more delicate than the mohair, but - because its so much softer - the seams barely seem to show at all.
