Stitch ‘n Kids: Donna Wilson’s ‘Make your own Magpie’

Sara was given this ‘Make your own Magpie‘ kit for her 7th birthday, and last week on a boring, rainy saturday she made the above bird — all by herself! The kit consists of a pre-stitched magpie shape, a bag of stuffing and some random pieces of fabric and felt, most probably the cuttings from some of Donna’s gorgeous designs. A sewing machine is not required, just a bit of hand-stitching, which Sara was capable of doing all by herself. She got so into it, that once her magpie was finished, she made it a little hat, built a house for it (with a nest of course) and played with it for hours and hours. So cute! There’s also a ‘Make your own Monster‘ kit, which I think is equally nice.
