Half the mites are stuffed – but not seamed up yet

My thumbs ache after stuffing the mites this afternoon. They can wait and be sewn up later on; stuffing them will allow the seams to ease a bit and take a better shape over time.  I used about 25% of the stuffing – and there are another 26-27 to go still that Stef is making. It will be lovely to see more fabric patterns – I am bored with mine already.

The more colours the better!

Stuffing and mite cut outs

Stuffing the mites – its amazing how much stuffing is needed.

I’ve checked out using a sewing machine to closeone of the pale pink ones in the picture, the other is hand closed. Machine stitching with a short stitch and narrow zig zag works fine.

All done and up to date
