Here's some of the process. Can you tell what's happening? Look at our pieces and piles!
Here's a big clue:
And here is the outcome:
Yes, it's a koala, and she's (it's a girl, according to C) about this big:
I was prepared for a stuffie project this time, as a few weeks ago I'd come across this tutorial and thought it was pretty cute. Courtney thought so, too... in fact, she loved it!
I printed the templates, and Courtney cut them all out and also cut almost all of the fleece and felt pieces herself. The tutorial calls for all hand stitching, but I thought it'd work to use her little machine (plus save a lot of time). However, there were too many layers in places, so we decided it would be best to sew it on my sewing machine. That went quickly, and we both did the stuffing of the body and limbs. Then a little hot gluing (by me) finished it off. It was a fun project, and Courtney happily took the koala home to add to her ever-growing collection.
I finished my own sewing project the night before, too, but haven't had time for photos yet. Hopefully I'll be able to show it to you tomorrow. Here's a little peek at it in the very early stages. Any guesses?
