Oops! This should have been posted late last night, not this morning. Oh well.
Yesterday I finished up the hat, put the stripes on the stockings and had a minor shoe catastrophe. Not to worry, they have been patched up, as you can tell, and someday I will get a process down for these pesky feet.
I also started on the vest. I am sticking to hand stitching for these puppets, partially because some clothes must be sewn onto the puppet and therefore cannot be done on the machine, partially to practice my stitching and mostly because I really enjoy hand sewing.
