Aunt Norie’s Sewing Room

October 30, 2002

This from a busy grandma. She has several tiny tots all at once, "all of a sudden, it seems." She likes to make small stuffed toys, using animal pictures she copies from coloring books, toys, they can chew on too. She saves or collects nylon hose from their moms. Sue cuts them up and uses the hose for stuffing the toys.

The little ones like toys that have arms, legs, tails, ears that the child can grab and hang onto, yes even chew on, are the favorites. The toys made with nylon hose for stuffing wash and dry so quickly it makes a perfect stuffing.

What a great idea and with Christmas so near; thanks for that great idea, lots of grandmas looking for such an idea just before Christmas, I'm sure.

If you are not already wearing a thimble, try training yourself to use one, you may feel a bit awkward and clumsy at first, however your hand stitching will go more easily when you become used to wearing one and have no more sore fingers.

Remember now if you find you need to replace worn jacket cuffs with colors that are hard to find, look in the warm wooly sock section, lots of colors there, then just cut off the tops to use for new cuffs.

God Bless you all, Love Aunt Norie, P. O. Box 265, Tonganoxie 66086-0265.
