I’m all thumbs when it comes to pins, needles and threads. But the little boy insisted we make a batman doll.
He made the pattern,
then we pinned it up onto an old white handkerchief. He insisted on white.
But, he insisted that we add the “details” before we began cutting.
And this is where the project stands right now. I’m hoping this is our stopping point because I have no idea how to thread the sewing machine, or how I could ever get that machine maneuvered around these tight little corners. And hand-sewing would take forever.
But oh, how I wish I was different, and this doll was different. That instead of weaving stories, I could weave blankets, dolls and toys into existence. That I knew how to thread the sewing machine (yes, I’ve been shown several times) and more importantly, that I just wanted to remember how to do it. But sewing is just one huge block for me.
