i made a fabric doll for our friend’s little daughter

some of the fabric scraps bought new previously for crafting purposes, some recycled from old sweatshirts and such so i guess the outcome is not entirely eco friendly
the doll’s box bed originally from some corporate unnecessary gift from my man’s work. i turned it out and painted it with acrylic. also this time i had been a little resourceful tracing the tiny bear pattern straight from my tablet screen

and while making the doll i managed to surprise myself with the whole new level of clumsiness. i cut off a small piece of my own finger with tailor scissors (really sharp ones) so! while searching frantically for the piece that fell off instead of maybe going bandaging the finger i thought what would i tell people when they ask. and only came up with this: “i decided i had too many fingers….” (it sounds better in hebrew or russian, i promise) well, not sure it’s all that funny but people are smiling at it (a little too high a price to make someone smile, maybe?)

p.s.  learned a new word the other day

it’s “flabbergasted”

let me try use it in a sentence now…”i was flabbergasted to see i cut a hole in my finger”

did i get it right?
