As Cleo is going to be a door stop, I needed to put some weight inside her tummy before I could complete the body. I used a plastic container.....
I placed it upside down with the lid as so, then filled with stuffing until it was held firmly in place
I then took the lid off, filled it with river stones and popped the lid back on!
I hand sewed the base to the body, pushing more filling in as I went.
and hey presto!
She still needs her arms and tail, that's tomorrows job.
Cute eh? Oh and I did her ears too.
She'll be finished tomorrow, it's not very often I get a project finished that quickly!
It's blowing a gale out there still so all I can do is stay indoors and I might as well craft.
I'm off to close all the curtains to shut out that awful weather, sit in my recliner chair and watch the final of Australia's Masterchef (far better than the NZ one) with a cuppa.
Daylight saving starts tomorrow so we lose an hours sleep, I'll just have to stay in bed longer.
Bye for now
