Little and Large.

I loved making the Tilda scarecrow from the book Sew Sunny Homestyle so much so that I decided to try and make a smaller version. Today I took the book to a printers and photocopied the pattern, one at a 40% reduction and the other at 50% reduction. I had no idea if it would work or if it would be to fiddly to make. The only other adjustment I had to make was to cut the skewer stick for his arms. I decided not to cut the sticks for his legs, I just shoved them right up into his body making the legs a lot more sturdier.  Isn't he just fab. Here he is next to Sammy just so you can see the size comparison. This little guy is reduced by 40% and I already have another two cut out and ready to sew up. However, it doesn't stop there, I have also drawn a version in my sketch book which I think would look fab appliqued to a tote bag.
