There is something so sweet and satisfying about hand-sewing. I am a very beginning sewer (like, I still need the instruction manual to operate my sewing machine). But somehow the idea of stitching something by hand seems infinitely more do-able. I can pick it up here and there, it makes no noise, and it is something I can do with two kiddos underfoot. Perfect!
So this week, in the spirit of keeping calm, crafting on, I worked on two little handsewn projects.
The first was from a sweet little tutorial over at Clean. Ella was excited about the idea of a treasure hunt, and these little pocket eggs can be filled with whatever kind of treasure you wish! She created the adorable triangles and cut out the hot pink egg herself!
The second project was for a new baby friend of ours. A lovely little baby sister for Ella’s best friend. I tried my hand at my second Waldorf baby doll, using an upcycled t-shirt for the body and hat. She is so soft and squeezable! I would add a bit more wool to the head next time, so the chin skin doesn’t pucker so, but I’m totally in love with making these little dolls.
