We were thrilled to bits to find Jackie Morris' new book The Ice Bear on sale in our little bookshop. After hunting around for an elusive Birthday present, the book was the perfect gift. I so wanted to keep it for myself, but that's just being selfish (and I'll put it on my Christmas list, haha!). Moomin wanted it too!
After a gruelling shopping trip (who knew school bags could be so hard to choose!) we retreated to our sewing boxes. I've been making this doll for Moomin for so long and everything else has come first but now we've decided to give her the Coraline look I felt inspired to knuckle down. With the movie on in the background, I spent the longest time stitching the hair in place. Some time today will be clothes making :D
