I am a plush pattern designer, craft book author, and sewing teacher. I design patterns for stuffed animals from my home studio in Wellesley, Massachusetts. Sewing dolls and toys is my passion! I strive to make my patterns easy to follow by including step-by-step photos all along the way and writing clearly. My toys are clever and fun to sew. I think you're going to love making them! You are welcome to sell the toys made from my patterns!
Since 2005 I've been sharing my ideas on design, technique and the culture of craft through my blog (whileshenaps.typepad.com). I have a master's degree in education from Harvard and taught middle school social studies in Mississippi and Massachusetts before becoming a textile artist and the mother of three girls.
My daughters, now age 8, 6, and 18 months, are the happy recipients of all of her prototypes!
My first book, The Artful Bird: Feathered Friends To Make and Sew, was an ALA Booklist top ten craft book of 2011 and I have a new book coming out about soft toy design! It will be published by Lark in May of 2013.
Sew a soft, cuddly duck for someone special. This huggable sofite duck is ready to attend your next tea party or snuggle up for a bedtime story. Add a dapper necktie or a pretty bow to make your duck extra fun. This pattern includes instructions for both accessories, and gives you the option of making eyes from felt or using a pair of safety eyes.
This PDF sewing pattern guides you along with step-by-step photos and easy to understand instructions. If you've sewn a few projects before you'll be able to sew a duck! The pattern templates are full-sized and ready for you to print at home and the instructions are straightforward. The finished duck is 10" tall.
This listing is for a digital PDF sewing pattern. It will be emailed to you immediately after purchase.
To make a duck you'll need:
-1/2 yard of white minky or fleece
-1/4 yard of yellow minky or fleece
-1/4 yard of quilting cotton for Lester's necktie OR a scrap of quilting cotton for Lily's bow
-scraps of black and white felt for the eyes OR 1 pair of 12 mm safety eyes
-optional: poly pellets to give the duck's body weight (poly pellets are sold in most craft stores)
