A friend came over one day a couple weeks ago and sewed the bodies while I cut them out. Then we started in on the hats and jackets. The bodies I used Warm and Natural batting that I had tan Rit Dyed before cutting. I stuffed all of them while watching TV in the evening and assembled them during the day. The hats and jackets are from felt. In the end there are 57 of them! I used various patterns from Country Friends and Old Road Primitives and sometimes changed things up a bit by adding different accessories to them.
Don't they all look like they are just marching off to meet their new owners?
