What are you most proud of? My original design. If I had more time I'd put the pattern up for sale on Craftsy. Perhaps it will be my first pattern as a Designer after the first of the year. It took some adjusting to achieve the design but I had a lot of fun in the process. In the end he looks like I imagined he'd be. He's quick to make. From idea to the finished toy took only a few hours. I started in the evening by creating the pattern. The most time consuming thing was embroidering his features. Aside from the fleece everything I used I already had! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Go ahead, put the ideas in your head on paper. I used a large brown paper bag for the pattern and a sharpie to highlight the middle. This makes transferring the features to fabric easier. Add a seam allowance to the edge to accommodate stuffing. Don't add a seam allowance to the applique in the middle. When stuffing fill the extremities first. Use a blind stitch to close the opening. Design takes some work but in the end you'll feel quite satisfied!
