Tiggywinkle for Christmas.

I would love to spend Christmas with you all. Tiggywinkle is quick and easy to make, and is a cute little prezzie. I made oodles of them years ago for my Craft Fair. I have just made this one for Muffin. Forgot to put the pinny and little ribbon around her hat for the photo.The pinny is green with a lace trim. Uploaded Image

Cut out a 12 inch and a 5 inch circle. Cut out a kidney shape for shawl. Cut out little pinny in a U shape. Glue a strip of fabric on to a pipe cleaner for arms. You need some wadding, some lavander, 3 coloured pins, and a teazel for the face. A suitable pine cone will do. Knit a few lines with 12 stitches on stocking needles. Transfer to 2 cocktail sticks, and make a little ball of wool. Do running stitch around the big circle. Pull in and fill with wadding and lavander. Pull tight and secure. Do same with little circle stuffing in the teazel with eyes and nose positioned. Gather shawl 1 inch in from each edge,and stick on. stick on pinny, stick on arms, and stick on head. Put little narrow ribbon around the hat. Place knitting in hands and stick on the ball of wool. Et Voila!

Frances's Avatar Very clever, Tiggy!

I am up to my ears and beyond trying to make lots of Christmas gifts and get my cards done. Just need more hours to each day and night.

And...tomorrow it is back to work at the shop. Hoping that our customers will be visiting all day. With this economy, there is no way to predict.
