This is Dolly, and she is the first thing I ever sewed. She made from one of my dads old work shirts and I think is stuffed with bits of shirt as well! I think I made her when I was about 4/5 with help and guidance from my mum.
From what I can remember the face is sewn on using some of the threads from one of those hotel sewing kits.
Its a cracking face isn't it? i really like the wonky eyes adds character!
That and the huge stitches I used to attach the legs!!
And the fact that I didn't even use a matching colour thread on this arm!
Its kind of weird to think that this is the first thing I made, the first thing that I cut up and sewed together.
