After practicing my freemotion sewing recently by making a freemotion sewing portrait purse of Alan Pitchfork (the foolish sock gardener) – his two pals felt a little bit jealous and wanted their own potraits!
So not to be mean, I had a go. Here are the chaps with their purses…
Percy Grower is quite pleased with his – he thinks he looks rather dashing with his flowery headband!
Bob Flowerpot on the other hand is very hard to please. He thinks he looks too fat and rather like a frog! (Actually, I think he’s right!)
And silly Alan Pitchfork likes everything, so he’s very happy with the way he looks. He’s especially pleased that he’s got two purses and the others only have one!
I might have to re-think the shape of Bob and have another go. And then maybe I’ll try some other freemotion sewing sock creature portrait purses. Sock monkey heads would probably be fun. Any suggestions from the creatures I have in my shop?
