I made J some little finger puppets to go in her Christmas pillow case. I was inspired by this idea, but it seemed a bit silly to make winter finger puppets in the middle of summer. I eyeballed the pattern and came up with these four little ladies.
Aren't they just lovely? I had an idea in my head that hand sewing was laborious and time consuming, which I think is a hangover from when I was a teenager, and anything that took more than five minutes was far too difficult. But when I sat down to make these finger puppets I was pleasantly surprised by how easy and it was, and how quickly they came together. It just goes to show that my idea of time consuming has changed significantly since I was younger. They were actually much faster to make than knitting something up.
