having made a good few of these now the fiddliest bit is sewing head to body I find if your seams aren't 1/4 inch you may have to do a little surgery on the back of the neck which I cover with ribbon bow

Thank you so much Veggie :)
Had a close look at the instructions and it is far too complicated for me ( don't forget I can't follow a pattern as I only do p & q ) Also I couldn't print it off, but thanks anyway ... I'll enjoy looking at yours  :)

Ok I had a play  with the Moda Flying Colour  scraps and this is the result .. the little oblongs were 1 1/2 " by 2" and I cut them to squares I had 3 charms and a few 1" strips  and 3/4 strips of joined  cut offs  I used an oddment of old rose chintz lining and beige lining for the back... then I made them into a box bag

Wow!  You have good eyesight and very nimble fingers - that's lovely.   0_0
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.
