Do you recognize this super cute guy? If not , let me introduce you to Sonic, the Hedgehog. My grandson, Oliver, knows all about him and loves to play video games where Sonic is the hero. When Ollie arrived at my house one day last week, he brought along his partially created, original rendition of this favorite spikey character. He twisted my arm to help him finish Sonic up using my sewing machine. How could I refuse?
It took two sewing sessions, more old t-shirts, some red socks and the stuffing from a rejected pillow to get Oliver's new best friend completed. Oliver gave me specific instructions as to how each arm, joint, and spike should be made. I tried my best to follow his lead as he did all of the cutting and designing. Ollie went home with some grey t-shirt fabric and grey thread to add soles to the bottom of Sonic's shoes himself....a detail that O didn't think of till the last minute. My eight year old grandie is quite the inventor and crafter! He and Sonic kind of have matching smiles, I think...love them both! That was hard work though...think I'll stick with quilts!While the sewing machine was humming away, Ezra found time to make friends with our new puppy, Ginger. They both have nice smiles, as well! Do you sew with your little people?
