I am a terrible aunty! I have given up making Christmas gifts for my adorable nephews, it’s just too much work for me right now. It’s not even that I don’t have the time per se (although, it will take a lot of time), I’m just tired. If I’m sewing, I want to sew for myself right now. Selfish, I know, but I can’t help it.
I started working on this elephant, a pattern from the S.E.W. Everything Workshop book (great sewing book, BTW)
|Not my creation, a picture found on flickr of the final product.|
It is an adorable little stuffed toy, and I got everything needed to make one, but unfortunately, they take a LONG time to make. I only got as far as stuffing and closing up the body, and that took me 5 hours. That’s a long time… And it’s not even finished. And, I have to make 3 of them. No bueno. Therefor, I throw my hands up in defeat. Maybe I’ll make em’ for their birthdays.
As a result, I had a lot of Christmas shopping to do today, but I managed to get what I needed done, wrapped and all. Shane has a few gifts to get, and then we’re really set. Thank goodness it’s almost here, I need a break!
