Oups désolée, la photo m'a trompée, j'ai cru qu'il y avait un fond blanc pour le corps! :)

Bonjour, je ne vois pas les explications concernant le bas du bonhomme en blanc...Pouvez-vous m'éclairez? Merci!

Bonjour Vanessa, le corps du bonhomme (en bas) se fait en rouge, le blanc que l'on voit devant, c'est son écharpe - si j'ai bien compris votre question. Bon crochet!

Arbeitsbeginn ist nicht weiß sondern rot. Tipp: statt Füllwatte für den Kopf nehme ich eine passende Styroporkugel (ist waschbar und gibt es sehr günstig z.B. bei Tedi). Das Gesicht wird damit sehr schön gefüllt, und die Mütze wirkt auch ohne Watte.
