Plush Toy Sewing Pattern

The other night, I got into some sewing again!  This was supposed to be a dog however, it turned into a mouse somehow!  I consider myself a beginner sewer so I wasn’t surprised to see the final product look a little different than the pattern.  I only had a small selection of grey and floral fabric at the time too which didn’t help the situation.  Still, it’s cute!

Here’s how it was supposed to look:

I purchased the pattern on Etsy at “ElfPop’s” Store.  It was an instant download and I found the pattern very easy to follow.

I found closing the project along the bottom to be very difficult (as you can see in my project, the raw edges of the legs are showing!  haha).  Clearly, I need more practice with hand stitching fabrics.

I liked her tip of using fabric glue to hold the small felt pieces in place while you stitch them on the sewing machine instead of using pins.

I used interfacing and 6mm safety eyes for the eyes.

I emailed ElfPop a few questions so I can try this out again!  Stay tuned!

Happy Sewing!
