Moving on from disappointments** to some quick, fun crafting.
Inspired by Made by Joel.
Drawn by C*
Sewn by me (with C assisting on the stuffing stage).
And played by resident jazz virtuoso in training.
*Drawn straight onto the fabric, and capable of being a trumpet, cornet, clarinet or saxophone as desired. Our simpler shape was easier to stuff than the design in Joel's book, and I sewed a black oval to the end to make it a bit more three dimensional.
**Pleased to report we seem nasty bug free at the moment. Touchwood...
