Yesterday, Little Girl had a friend for a sleepover. I was pondering what to do to try and ensure that They’d Sleep. Always a tricky one! It was too cold, wet and miserable for much outdoor activity so I decided on a crafty one.
I remembered reading about Yarn Dolls (or woolly dolls) back over the summer holiday and although I was too lazy didn’t look it up we had a go and even if it wasn’t done properly the kids had a great time!
It kept them amused for an hour or so last night, and then another hour or so this morning. I loved how they spent ages deciding on all the tiny details like little cap sleeves for the t-shirts and enjoyed all the snippety-snips of the wool. Once the scissors were finally retired, and everything was tidied up we had a little photo-call. And so I would like to introduce you to Daffodil and Petal!
Aren’t they colourful and fun?! If you’re interested in making your own woolly doll then I found a similar tutorial here.
I hope you’ve all had a lovely day and see you again soon,
Today’s sky ● overcast (again!)
