Day One........

Hayley is spending a month with us.
Today she made "Sally".

The cute little dog in Jodie's pattern."Sally & Smith"
Hayley's sister Kasey loves her Sally.
Hayley wanted to make her own.
 From selecting fabric, cutting , stitching, stuffing and embellishing.
All her own work

 Please don't look too closely, some bits are just a bit wonky but when you're only 8,
never sewn a softie before
 and you already know everything!!!

What do we do for the next 4 weeks?

Hayley, you are a superstar and the youngest person I know so far to make a sally softie. She looks great.

Hayley is lovely, you are so fortunate to have her for 4 weeks - I am envious! Tell her lots of stories about YOU! :)

Hayley your Sally Dog is fabulous.
I think you are a lot like Nan Hayley.
Wonky,
How MOST things LOL
But boy doesn't she look like Mum???
I think you will need to do puppet making painting more sewing and maybe a movie in town on the weekend.

Too too cute - both Haley and her new friend. Tell her well done - the ladies love it! Good to get her sewing now - doesn't every dog need her own blanket?

Needled Mom said...

What fun for her (and you). I think the softie needs a wardrobe!!!

That's a pretty good looking softie...I've never even made one before....Have fun over the next 4 weeks...I'm with Bev...how about a quilt?

LoL, great post. Sally turned out great even if Hayley did know everything.

I think that little wienie dog is PERFECT and it's hard to believe that a little 8 year old made it. She did a marvelous job! I would love to have one (as I'm owned by two living barking wienie dogs LOL).
