This months sew-along; Play Town. In all honesty, I wasn't overly excited about it. But I decided to do it anyway. It turned out to be fun. Glad I did it. And as Silas was playing with them, and questioning me about them, he informed me that he needed about a dozen more of them, so that some REAL playing could happen. Leave it to a 4 almost 5-year old.
The "shells" all sewn together except for the ends, waiting to be stuffed.
The pattern called for 4" wide foam, but I could only find 2" wide, so I doubled-up.
So two of each cut. That was kind-a fun. Used a serrated knife, sliced without any problems.
Stuffed them and sewed up the bottoms by hand, and wala. House...
and car garage...
So I tried to do some cute ric-a-rac trim along the edge of the front roof, like hers, but as you can see, didn't really work out very well. And I was feeling lazy, so I didn't unpick to fix it. Oh well. The kids like them, so that's what matters.
