for amanda: stuffed animals

Amanda, sorry this has taken me sooo long to post. I made these cute little guys last Christmas. I found this tutorial for the elephant and this tutorial the giraffe on makeitandloveit. I then made a whale and seahorse pattern (printed off a silhouette, traced it onto fabric, etc.), and put them together the same way as the elephant and giraffe. The seahorse was a little more tricky because that skinny little tail is hard to get batting into. Make sure if you do it, you make it big enough to stuff. Have fun!

Delicious Toy Story

I'm back.. after a long absence. I've missed you, blogging world! Sorry about my lack of posting, summertime takes over. I can't argue with nice weather, family in town, vacations, etc.

So... here is my latest creation in the kitchen.
