Stuffies

Lately my biggest thing to make has been little soft stuffie toys. Whether they are made of felt or fabric, I want them all! I've also discovered a love for hand sewing. For any of you who know me, you know that i've always said that I HATE hand sewing. But recently It feels like all I want to do is sit on the couch and make critter after critter of little hand sewn felt stuffies. So first up is an octopus. I love octopuses! I know they creep many people out, but I LOVE THEM! This one happens to be purple (could there be a better color for an octopus?). He's made out of some wool felt from the shop and little green sequins. If you want to make a little octopus for yourselves it's a free tutorial over here



Next up with my stuffie obsession is an owl pillow! You can find the pattern here if you want one too! I tried to stick with some gender neutral/boyish colors and I took forever picking them out! But i'm so happy with the results and love him!



P.S. Do you like my new curtains. Not much of a view of them, but i'm so happy with them! It's one of my favorite fabrics!

They're adorable! Reading your post was like reading my own mind, recently I've also started making hand-sewn felt Christmas ornaments (post hopefully coming soon) and I feel the exact same way about hand-sewing/embroidering now!!!

That octo is the cutest thing I've ever seen, and his colors are amazing.

How fun! Very cute! I love octopi (are they octopi or octopuses?) too. Well... does it count if I like to eat them? I guess technically that's squid... there was this one time at an aquarium in Texas where a baby octopus played peek a boo with me. It was pretty awesome. Oh... where am I?

That owl is adorable! Love them both!
