If you'd like to try a sewing project, here's is where I'll put some tutorials with patterns for fun animals and other plush toys to make yourself. I've got a growing collection of vintage patterns, and I'm starting to try them out.
This first one is a cute little toucan to make from fabric scraps. Decorate your child's room with one or a few, make one for a gift, or for yourself! This one is fairly easy, intermediate level. Pattern, instructions and some photos of my process are included!
Here's an apple ornament or pincushion that is so fast and easy to make that you could make a bunch for hostess gifts, to sell at the school fair, or to decorate your home.
Here's a tutorial for an owl shaped business card holder made from fake leather and fabric scraps.
Here's a butterfly brooch template!
Make some brooches, hair clips, table decorations, garlands!
