Creatures to Love

Here are my newest stuffed creatures. I designed the pattern for each of them, and used scrap fabric to make them. The eyes and embellishments are felt with some embroidery.  The Cat and Alien creatures will soon be for sale in my Etsy shop in a variety of colors and designs, each one is unique.  So stay tuned for creatures that you can befriend!

Creatures: stuffed and small.

I found this great vintage Simplicity pattern for little stuffed animals, and decided to make one my niece’s birthday.  I picked the camel because its cute and easy for one year old hands to hold.  I made her older brother one too. (So he won’t steal hers!)   They were pretty easy to cut out and sew together, but  I will admit that the turning and stuffing were a bit  painstaking at times.  I am also guilty of not being very good at embroidery.  Those eyes I did are a bit wonky.

When I was cleaning up the scraps of fabric, I unfolded one and saw the cutest little alien monster, just waiting to be made.  So I also created Creature, the friendly alien monster.  I used felt bits for the detail work and just made it up as I went along.  It was hard to decide where his eyes should be and I’m not sure if thats a mouth or a nose.  I also added a bum for fun.  He turned out pretty well though.  I plan on making a series of creatures now.  I’ll have to come up with some good names for them.
