Happy Harry - The Hands


I hope that you all had a nice weekend!

Today I have the photos of sewing Harry's hands. Because he is a small doll, his hands are only about 1 1/2" across - so sewing and turning the tiny fingers can be a bit tricky. Thank goodness Jill's patterns are always accurate so that makes it all so much less stressful. :<)

The hands are drawn on the fabric and ready to sew.

The hands are sewn and ready to be cut out.

Now they are turned right side out and the fingers formed.

Pipe cleaners are inserted into the fingers and tied at the wrist - to be trimmed later when inserted into the arms. A bit of stuffing will also be added to fill out the hands.

Thanks for stopping by!

Wishing you a good day today! Here in this part of WI we have rain and thunderstorms forecast again for today and tomorrow. Rain this past weekend . . . . so much rain! :<)

Tomorrow I have photos of choosing the fabric for and the sewing of Happy Harry's body, arms and hat. Now we add some color! :<)

Hello Barbara,
I don't know how you sew something so small so perfectly. I assumed you would be hand stitches the doll hands. Sewing them, Phew! I have a sewing machine but when I needed to sew something most of the time I hand stitched it. You are awesome at what you did.
