plush racoon.

We looked after milo’s friend and his big sister on sunday for a bit – so I wanted to get some crafting in to keep her occupied. I showed her my pinterest boards and asked her to find something that looked fun – she loved the idea of making her own plushie, and decided that this is the one we would make.

We made ours out of felt, printed and cut all the pieces and sewed away. She was  big help with cutting and trimming, while I did all the major sewing. She was so tickled with her pink raccoon and couldn’t believe we made our own stuffed animal! It took us a little less than two hours start to finish. I think hes rather cute, don’t you?!

Pattern and instructions found here.

When I saw this tutorial, I knew I would be making this yeti!

It was fairly easy to do, and I finished it in about two hours or so. Most of the sewing is by hand – and I even tried to learn a few of the stitches…. You will need to know blanket stitch, (successful, but was a little messy with it)  whip stitch and ladder stitch (still need help with that one!). I watched short tutorials on you tube that showed me how to do them.

I love this little guy! Usually when I make plushies, I gift them, but I just don’t think I can part with this guy. Even milo tried to claim him, but I just can’t do it. Follow the link above and make your own  yeti!
