Well....blanket stitch was NOT as easy to do as it looked. I ended up trimming the bird a little and that didn't go well, plus I don't think an eye is really what it needs. I like the wings though. Kind of.
Two more mice.
The giraffe's body is done. Then I realized that its legs would be easier on a machine...
Two more birds in progress. No more blanket stitch for me!
I tested a pattern (and discovered the wonder that is Undersummers) and so now I have two skirts. The patch pockets were my own addition. Because you have to have pockets.
This one is a little below the knee. The elastic waist is really too loose, but I'm too lazy to fix it.
This one is about calf-length. The original pattern is about ankle-length, and I still might shorten this, as it's really hot this summer.

Sewing is all about patience, thinking ahead, and trying again.
I had almost finished hand-sewing this when I realized it would be easier to machine-sew it
And hopefully less lumpy
So, slightly less lumpy. Been a while since I've sewn corners apparently
Yeah, should have but the eyes and ears on BEFORE stuffing it
But she's pretty cute!
Even if she doesn't stand up without help...
And has an oddly-misshapen back leg
