I had a very productive 2 days and finished 3 animals! All of which will be for sale as soon as I get my Etsy shop set up.
The first is this super cute teddy bear. I just color this color which is Aquae. I use Berroco Vintage which is a blend of 50% Acrylic, 40% Wool, and 10% Nylon. Its super soft!. I used the baby safe eyes with a white highlight and I like this look better than the plastic safety eyes.
The second is a monster from the Design your own monster on craftsy. I love how quick it was to make it. Again I used Berroco Vintage in the color Petunia and Fondant. I used the same eyes but this time instead of black I made them with the purple and I really like how it turned out.
The last animal is a whale. I need to take a better picture but for now this will have to do. I already made this one before but this time I stuffed it more and it gives it a completely different look. I really love this one. I used the same technique for the eyes but made these slightly bigger and and oval shape instead of round. I also used Berroco Vintage in the color Misty.
So this isn't really a finished project but I was so excited I decided to share it with ya'll. I bought this 5lb box of stuffing at my local craft store for $13 by using a coupon. This should be enough for several stuffed animals and I will be making tons more so I know I will definitely need it.
I also just ordered some more Berroco Vintage Yarn! YAY! My LYS doesn't have many colors so I had to order it online. Yarnmarket.com has a 20% sale on all Berroco yarns so I decided to try it out since I have never purchased from them before. Its until October 1st for anyone wanting to buy some Berroco Yarn.
I'm almost done with the Platypus. I would have finished it for today but things came up and I didn't get a chance but pretty much all that's left is attaching all the pieces so it will be done for next Friday.
After that I will work on the seahorse. I'm so close to finishing but its taking me forever. But I will for sure get the one done this weekend.
The Owl is on hold until my yarn arrives. I ordered 2 yellows and an orange all which are candidates to be used for the beak and feet so as soon as that comes in I will finish him up. I will probably sew the parts I can now. I am also waiting to see what color to use for the eye circles and its probably going to be one of the new colors. I'm not sure how fast the shipping is so it probably won't get finished for next Friday.
The last animals on my to do list are the 2 dragons I started and I'm hoping to make some progress on them this weekend too.
Have a great Weekend!
