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.
Abracadabra...hocus pocus...shazam! Say some magic words and this rabbit puppet will pop out of the magician's hat! Create this clever, fun toy as a gift for a child. It's sure to play a starring role in their creative playtime!
This sewing pattern is perfect for advanced beginners. It involves sewing a straight stitch on the sewing machine, basting, and some simple hand stitching.
With this pattern you'll sew cute, soft rabbit hand puppet with a fully lined, stuffed head. You'll also make a black magician's hat and then you'll see how the two are cleverly attached to make this super fun and professional-looking puppet! Put your pinky in one of the rabbit's arms, your thumb in the other, and you middle three fingers in his head to make him wave and nod to the crowd! You can pull him down completely inside the hat as though he's disappeared, then make him pop out again to be the star of the show!
Like all of my patterns, this sewing pattern includes step-by-step photos, clear written instructions, and full-sized templates.
