This morning we opened another of the craft kits I ordered from Yellow Moon – the Christmas Character Decoration Sewing Kits.
Only Jasmine actually wanted to do one today as the boys were too busy playing trains!, so she got the choice of which kit she wanted to do. It comes with a Penguin, a Snowman and a Christmas Pudding and Jasmine choose the Penguin. Thomas did come over and have a look, but decided he couldn’t possibly make a Christmas decoration today because it isn’t December yet 😉
On opening the kit the first thing you have to do is thread ribbon through a really small bell. Even I struggled with this and I think maybe a slightly larger bell would have been better! But really, this is the only negative thing I have to say about this whole kit because everything else is very well designed and Jasmine managed to do an awful lot with minimal input from me. I guided her with the sewing part as we haven’t done much sewing with any of the kids before (this WILL change in the near future so watch this space!) and I helped her get the stuffing inside the decoration, but she stuck/glued all the parts on to the body by herself using the included instructions/picture as a guide.
She was very pleased with her finished penguin 🙂
