A few weeks ago I decided to make some stuffed toys. I had made a few years and years ago and had fun with them. This time I wanted to make some with clothes, joints, and props. I'm still gaining on the process, but here are my first ones.
The "gentleman" in the red jacket is a wolf doll made from a pattern I bought on Etsy. You can't see his tail in the picture, but it's a cute fabric one. I made his clothes different than the pattern called for, but otherwire he's close to the pattern.
The small mouse that's seated is my first one that can be jointed. Her pattern cam from a book, How to Sew Little Felt Animals, by Sue Quinn. The mouse's head moves, but I didn't have the right size "joints" for her arms and legs. Her tail is made out of leather, a deviation from the pattern but one that I like better. I made a little pair of gold wire glasses for her, although they need more work. But she sits on my art desk and seems very content with them.
My next mouse, and the best so far, is going to be a gift for a gardening friend of mine.
