Sewjo...where for art thou?

I conducted a little totally non-scientific experiment on the weekend to try to pinpoint when my sewjo disappeared.

The carbon dating of my iPhone photos seems to indicate that it was somewhere around  February 3, although I'm quite sure that it was on a go slow for a couple of weeks prior.

With the forced hibernation due to the crazy hot weekend, I decided to set myself a challenge...


.... and thanks to my infatuation with Instagram, this is the finished result.

It took me all weekend in between faffing, drinking cups of tea, catching up on all of my Foxtel IQ'd shows, washing etc...

 Jeez.. there's that moon tan again!

...and thanks to the power of Instagram, when I had a little whine about how frustrating it is to 'turn out' softies,  Berene from Happy Sew Lucky pointed me in the direction of one of her tutorials.

Brilliant!

Now she just needs some clothes.

I love that the SewJo is returning!! I have lost mine too but I think that's because my sewing machine has been buried under 5 other crafts…. Love the doll - she is adollable! x

Hi Cam
Thanks for the link. Hope you found my trick helpful. I have a collection of straws of different thicknesses for the job, and my kids love turning all my skinny bits right side out with them.
Your doll looks so snazzy with her purple hair and fabulous pants suit. Does she have a name?
Look forward to seeing what you whip up next, now that you've found your sewjo.
