Today the sun was shining, and it was so warm outside, i was sitting on the terrace while sewing for 2 hours :D
I started off with preparing the paw patches for the feet
Then pinning them into place
Sewing them on to the red line i stitched. And leaving a small opening for the stuffing later on.
After 3 and a half hour all arms and legs where finished
Then half an hour for sewing the darts.
Then I spend an other hour to pull out all the red threads, pinning the parts together for sewing.
Just in time for TV “listening” i was ready to make me an other cup of coffee and settle down with my box of parts.
3 Hours later I had the legs on the back and the front and pinned the paws into place
The head, The body and sewn the head to the body.
Here you can see, i have the opening for the stuffing in the front, and also just sewn half of the neckline of the head.
That’s because it is easier for me to insert the spine later on, and sew the 2 “arms” on to the head seams and the rest to the back seam.
Here i show you why i spend a day cutting hair
Can you see … nothing caught in the seam line … which means no annoying pulling hair out of the seam line … which i sooo much hated.
Just give the whole thing a really good brushing - i use a cat brush
Catch it somewhere and give it a good shake
No seam line to see :)
Still to do tomorrow :
Sew the arms and sew the pads into the feet
That's then again for a while with sewing …
Because the next part is the wirering (how is this spelled ? my dictionary doesn’t know, and i don’t know either) of the arms and legs.
Preparing the spine, covering wire and spine with something soft, and secure the padding so it stays where it is supposed to stay.
I don’t know how far i will get with it tomorrow …
