Sewing for two sisters and one brother can be tricky! Using Lisa's Pattern along with her simple directions, two snuggly, little owls were created with fleece scraps in purple, gray and zebra. For my favorite boy, I hope you can see I used the same pattern pieces upside down and sideways!
The result kind of looks like Mike Wazoski from Monsters, Inc!
Perhaps my silly creation is Mike's sister's cousin's nephew, Fred Wazoski? ;-)
This was a fun project for practicing applique. I'd like to do the pattern again with different fabrics. Since fleece is stretchy, some of the proportions are a little distorted. The kiddos love how soft and cuddly they feel though, so fleece was a good choice that way! Also, the softies would have a more finished look if I had taken the time to match my thread to each fabric instead of using gray for all of the applique.
Another sewing lesson learned, right? ;-)
'Sending a big "Thank You" to Lisa at Stubbornly Crafty for this darling pattern! I hope you'll visit her site and see her amazing skills! WOW! You will be impressed!
What have you been sewing? Do you like making snuggly softies?
