Girls kilt age 14
It's actually more red in real life!
I unpicked the pleats (about an hour's work) then cut off the waistband. I popped it into the washing machine and washed it at 90 degrees to felt it. I ended up with about 1.5 metres of lovely felted tartan wool.
I played around with some scottie dog shapes until I found a few I was happy with.
I cut out 2 shapes from the same template then hand stitched them together using blanket stitch. I left an opening big enough to add stuffing and finished it off.
This wee one is about 8cm by 10cm
The bigger one is about 22cm by 20cm
I'm really chuffed with my efforts. Again they've cost nothing to make as I had all the materials. There's plenty of felted tartan left so I can make more. I think I'll try a cat and an elephant next. If I can make them quickly then selling them might be an option :-)
