As a little starting school gift, I thought I would make Amelie a little stitched pencil case. I know she probably doesn’t need one yet, but still. I wanted to make it! So here it is. It didn’t take long, with a little evening stitching in front of the box. I appliqued it with a yellow pencil and stitched her name on. I know, she will probably ditch it very quickly in favour of some Helly Kitty of Frozen crap, but she likes it at the moment!
I’ve wanted to try making my own little peg dolls for ages but couldn’t find the plain dolls. So when I saw them flash up on EBay I was very happy. If you’re in the US these are pretty easy to come by on Etsy – I just can’t face paying more on postage than on the item! So I bought a family set and painted my little family.
