Hands-On Nativity--Step Two

Here is my progress on my Nativity for the kids.

I had to pin all the headdresses, trim, faces, and etc before I could sew them.

The original used felt for the faces, hands, and beards, but I wanted something that was more durable/washable, so that meant I had to turn under the edges for the fabric faces!

I decided to embroider the animals after they were sewn so I'd know where the features needed to go.

Here they are all sewn.

The next step is to embroider on the faces.
