31. Elsie Cabbage

DSCF2312

I was lucky enough to test another one of Jodie's patterns, Elsie Cabbage. I put her in a tree, because she's a tree-climbing kind of girl.

In fact, Elsie is happiest when she is outdoors.

I don't know if it is the lop-sided pig-tails, just like her own...

But Amélie has claimed adopted her.

How could you not love this cute, freckly face?

I don't know why we bothered with the shoes, because Elsie prefers to go barefoot.

...and naked, apparently.

Watch out for Elsie Cabbage, the pattern should be available in a week or two. If your local doesn't stock Ric-Rac patterns, give them a funny look and ask them to order some in for you.

    1. The stitch length was 2.2. It is the default for my machine and what I like to use for piecing quilts and for stuffed toys. I use a longer stitch length (3) for dress-making, but we don't want any bits of fluff popping out of the seams and the seams have more stress on them when the toy is so tightly stuffed.

      I used linen thread to sew on her arms and legs, so hopefully they will stay on!

    1. I love Jodie's patterns. It is always exciting creating them as they are so different to everything else out there.
