I'd previously cut out a load of the pieces. The first thing they needed was the velcro sewing to the backs of them.
Now we've been friends for a while, you can tell me the truth. I'm a big girl, I can take it. Does this look even slightly like a T-rex? Would a 3-year old think it was a T-rex?
One of the pages is this face which he can velcro hats and features on and off. I'm thinking the velcro for the glasses looks a bit odd when the glasses aren't on.
This is supposed to be a viking helmet. It might have been marginally more successful had I sewed the horn-type-things on the right way up! I would have unpicked but I used a small stitch on my machine and picking stitches out of felt is not fun.
This will be a jigsaw, well a jigsaw with square pieces. I just have to figure out how to divide 7" by 3 (stupid me) and whether this should be velcro-backed too.
Not a bad start, and that is only a couple of hours' work. I need to sew them to pages of course and make little pockets to keep the bits in. I might just cut out some more pages soon ready for another sewing session. We're going down to see my nephew at the end of October and I'd like to present it to him then.
