The first Mrs Perkins, I made to the pattern size. I actually found Melly & Me patterns to be lacking in instructions - not that you need a lot of instructions for this pattern, but they could still do with some improvement. Claire, when she made Mrs Perkins, said that she had an issue with Mrs Perkins horns, which I have to agree, they are fiddly to turn and they did take a couple of tries.
Ella is obsessed with this little giraffe (or Bra as she calls it) so I thought that I would make one for her, but bigger.
Introducing up-sized Mrs Perkins. I enlarged the pattern to 141% of the size (this is what the photocopier took it up to) A lot easier to work on, and Ella is just as smitten with her.
And together with smaller Mrs Perkins - so you can see the difference in size.
