Loves Little Labours

These are the new chicks for
If you are thinking they look a little deflated,

you're not wrong.

Two steps away from completion.

Stuff, then hand stitch the opening.

I heart these Little's deeply.

For those of you who haven't made
stuffed humans or otherwise,

it's an undertaking.

Cutting out each individual pattern piece.
Choosing each material and cutting it out.
Doing it all over again with interfacing.
Sewing all the little parts
onto the other little parts
Hand embroidering the faces & details.
Triple stitching all the seems.
Stuffing all the appendages and sewing them in place.

Un picking all the appendages and doing them again.
Turning them right side out.
Stuffing the heads and bodies.
Hand stitching them closed.

I hope some kid loves these labours of love,
as much as I do.
