Mushroom Boy

handsewn softie- my first attempt to convert a drawing I did into a softie...

it was difficult to make your own pattern, but I learned a lot in the process!
1. make a prototype first with just white felt or fabric (that way you're not attached to it and can adjust and make a proper pattern off of it)
2. attach the body to the head piece first, repeat and then sew it all together
3. don't overstuff or your handsewn stitches will pull
4. plan ahead, plan ahead, i didn't allow seam allowance for the face

but all in all, he's still cute!

Tree off of a pattern, I plan to make a Christmas tree like this for the holidays


Lucy with pet Goosey- my first hand sewn project! This one was off of a pattern, but as soon as I get better- I'll make my own creations.
