My stuffies are done! Rather than got through the frustration of embroidering on their features, as the pattern called for, I decided to go a different route. Either way, say hello to my stuffies WITH faces above!
Looking at the photo, you can tell what I did. I got some pom poms, and grabbed my fabric glue. Boom! My stuffies came alive with their facial features.
As a side note, I’m was holding my dog back as I was taking the photo for this post. He loves stuffed toys, and enjoys eviscerating them with glee. Sorry, boy, these aren’t for you!
So, that’s the end of my stuffie saga. If you’d like, catch up on the rest of the story here and here.
And, to conclude, the pattern for these critters comes from Annie’s Knit Animal Friends, and you can get it for Kindle over on Amazon.
So, lately I have been knitting stuffed toys from Knit Animals Friends by Annie’s, and I’m doing finishing work on a bunny and am working on a dog as a follow up. The photo at the top is where I left off with the bunny. He’s taking shape!
I decided to knit toys because I came across the pamphlet of patterns that I had purchased a while ago. And, I had poly fill, but apparently not enough for Mr. Incomplete Bunny up there.
It’s been fun to knit these toys. Each animal starts off with a basic shape and basic sweater. All of them have similar finishing, but embellishments, ears, noses, and muzzles make them different animals. It’s a neat ideas and very smart.
I’ve had to keep an especially hard eye on Sputnik when working on the stuffed toy because he thinks all stuffed animals are his to destroy. Silly doggo.
