There really is an animal for each letter so almost all I could want is here or close enough for me to make it. Like the mouse isn’t there but the vole is and they look enough alike. And the size is right and easy directions. So this is perfect. Then I went to “Fabric and Sewing” site and got fleece in all the colors I needed. I have some fleece here to get started with so I don’t have to wait for that but I do have to finish the one I had started. I got the three bears but needed Goldie Locks and I am using Emily in my book from Australia.
I have the pieces all done except one arm which I still have four rows to do, then I will start stuffing her and putting her together. The under pants shoes and socks are all knitted right into the body.
You see the face is all knitted in too and the hair all has to be tied or knotted in.. That will take some time. Then I’ll make her dress and petticoat and then I can start on some of the other animals. I think I will do “Giraffes Can’t Dance” That is the only modern book I got but it was such a cute story I could not resist it. I need lots of animals for that book. Now that I have a good pattern for a frog I can’t wait to do “Froggie goes a Courting” That is an old Tex Ritter song that my kids always loved.
I got my bread made first thing this morning so now I can work on my dolls. Must run. Have a great day.
