.Christmas Sewing: Giddy-Up!.

I said before that I have been doing lots of sewing lately, ready for Christmas. All of the other gifts are going to have to wait until after the 25th to be shared, but I can show you what I have just finished for Oscar and Lil...

A "Giddy-Up" horse each using a new Melly & Me pattern! You know how you see a pattern and know that you just have to make one? It was like that with this pattern. I thought it would be a long shot trying to get two of them finished the week before Christmas but they were pretty straight forward to put together. I think they took me three nights of sewing after the kids had gone to bed.

This one is Oscar's....
And this one for Lil...
Pretty cute, huh? I'm really pleased with how they turned out - now the problem will be trying to work out how to wrap them...

Head - Amy Butler Midwest Modern, Garden Maze in Mustard

They are wonderful. Why do you have to wrap them? Couldn't they just be "out there"? Or, you could wrap a blanket around them.

They are awesome Toni - especially their sad eyes and polka dotted face. Hope the kids appreciate all the work you put it!

I love these too. I made Two Pippi Ponies this year and am planning on a new softie for their stockings each Christmas.

I might give the nieces and nephews a softie from the same pattern for their birthdays throughout the year after...

That link for the pattern doesn't seem to be there anymore. It's cute though!
