I Can Sew!
I've decided that it's time to stop telling everyone that I can't sew...
And stop telling MYSELF that I can sew...
Because I can.
I might be slow, and fiddly in my process... and things might not always go according to plan on the first go...
But I Can Sew.
I am a BEGINNER
I've had this book for years and years. It has survived many of my Library Culls, because I knew that ONE DAY I would make something from it.
And guess what? I FINALLY DID
These little guys are called Prancing Ponies, and I decided to make one for my New Niece for her First Christmas.
The fabric I chose was not really traditional for a Baby Toy, but I thought that I could make it work... with a Scrappy Mane, and a Trademark Heart.
When I finally had the Prancing Pony assembled, I showed her off to Mr Goldfish...
"Something's missing", he commented... "It should have a horn"
And yet again, Mr Goldfish was right. It did need a horn, so it could morph into a Magical Unicorn
