DD3 has been sewing up a fleece storm lately. She started Catie the Cat, but we had to wait for cats’ eyes to arrive in the mail, so shifted gears to Pablo the Polar Bear for a friend’s birthday in late March.
After I blogged about the horse she painstakingly sewed for my nephew, Angela from Collected Yarns commented about Linda Carr’s book of fleece animals. Of course I purchased it for DD3. She was a real trooper working her way through the horse pattern – it was very complicated with tiny 1/4″ seam allowances. Fleece animals sounded just as fun with a lot less headache involved.
Pablo was quite simple to sew, although ensuring seam accuracy is a bit of a challenge with the 1/4″ seam allowances. I did help with the embroidery, and my job was to check on the seams once they were sewn. Isn’t he cute and cuddly?
