Project #3 Busy Little Bee!

I have been very busy the last few days! I’ve been sewing like mad!!!

I tried finding an Elephant Pattern that I could let my Step Son sew. Needless to say, everything was very complicated. So I made my own!!! It’s a little dodgy looking, but I call it my RagaMuffin Elephant! The stitching on the outside means that the kids don’t have to muck around with trying to get the stitching just right. Here’s my prototype.

Today I found a simple Elephant Pattern that I could use myself. I had an idea of making it out of Calico, so that I could take it to the Hospital with me when Bubba arrives. I plan on getting my Visitors and the attending Midwife to sign it as a memento!

This is the Page that I found, Denise has done a great job with the instructions, pretty straight forward to follow!

This is how mine turned out.

It took many hours and after running out of stuffing, I sacrificed a hardly used pillow to this great project! I must say, I’m quite proud of myself for accomplishing this!

This is a little project that I put together to also play with my Step Son, felt animals! I made this little owl from a simple design that I found on Google Images. I changed it around a bit but here it is!

After making this I browsed the net for a while and these rad little monsters!

This is the page I found these little monsters on.

Unfortunately, I don’t have a picture of my little project. I helped my Step Son make an amazing little creature using this design, but he took them back to his other home, as he wanted to take them the next day to childcare for show and tell!

I’ll be making a few little monsters as a demo and I’ll post them up here when I do!
