So, when I saw this adorable little plushie on Pinterest, I knew I wanted to make one for our sweet Kayleigh. It's soft, it's cute, light and easy to hold, and it has taggies!
I went to JoAnn in search of soft, plush fabric. I fell in love with the chenille and minky they had by the bolt, but it was $15 a yard. I headed to the remnants section, and found soft green terry. Best part? All the remnants were 50% off! I spent about $1 on enough fabric to make 15 of these little guys.
Kelly's plushie tutorial comes with a full PDF download. It has two pages of instructions, and two templates to choose from. So helpful!
I decided to take the embroidery a step further and embroidered Kayleigh's name on the back
I used waste canvas to help me keep it all straight. That stuff is handy!
I used ribbons from my stash, cut them different lengths, and followed Kelly's tutorial to sew it all together.
I loved Kayleigh's reaction!
It's perfect for holding, and squishing, and tasting, and tossing
I'm pretty pleased :)
Now, it's your turn!
