Stacy Had a Little Lamb
I have been sewing away!!! :) I am so excited to be apart of Sewing to Rebuild!!!
Here is what I have made so far.
I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE this bag!! It has to be my favorite one that I have ever made (and I have made TONS)!!! I think it's the fabric. I need to try to find some more. This was donated (along with a bunch more) last year by a fabulous lady! ;) 2 of my good friends donated a lot last year to help out with Bags of Hope and Love. I haven't given up on that. I just need to settle in and see if I can find some people that are willing to help out with it. I could reach so many kids if I had just a few people willing to help out. ;)
Here is my little lamb!!! This is the very first stuffed toy that I have ever made!! I LOVE IT!!!
I used this tutorial -
Little lambs from Molly’s Sketchbook
I made a few minor changes.
1- I used fleece instead of felt. It is sooo sooo sooo soft. Now I need to buy more because the Cs both want one... LOL
2- I used the 4 leg pieces to make 4 legs instead of 2.
3- I added a little, bitty tail.
I am now in the middle of an outfit to go with this set. I decided to make shorts with a matching top. I am making the shorts the way I always make them but they are girl shorts so they aren't as long as I would make them for Colin. I realize yesterday that I have never made shorts for Cailey! LOL I've made everything BUT shorts!! You can find the tutorial HERE. If you feel better using a pattern I suggest THIS ONE from Squiggly Twigs Designs. You might recognize the model at the top of the page. ;) There are also some free patterns on Pattern Revolution. I have never made any of those patterns so I can't say how easy they are.
HAVE FUN SEWING!!! I sure am! ;)
