One of the construction details was inserting elastic thread in her dress neckline and cuffs. I must say that while Liberty lawn is fabulous fabric, it is not the easiest in tiny bits and hems on the sewing machine!
Into Mother Jean's box of needles and came across this perfect little packet. Not only is it well marked and the exact needle called for, but it's also very nostalgic that my Mum's needle box has something to do with the construction of her great-granddaughter's Maggie Rabbit. I love that it shows it's wartime price of 7 cents.
Zoë has been very excitedly watching Maggie progress via Skype. She is so anxious to be able to see her and really, really, wants Maggie to come to her house NOW! Someone wondered what Luca would be getting.....Luca at 15 months is more interested in the boxes, pots and pans, but I hear that there are more kits proposed at Posie Gets Cozy....perhaps a fox???
