3 Plushie patterns for fun kids’ toys

Now that all of the presents have been opened, I can show you what I’ve been making without spoiling the surprise. I’m lucky enough that even though my kids are getting older, they still love stuffed animals and dolls. This year I wanted to give them each something special and try out some new patterns.

You might recognize this doll pattern, it’s Mae from Bit of Whimsy patterns. This pattern does not disappoint. It is fast, easy to read, the pieces fit together well, and the results are so sweet! I finished these up on Christmas eve and Santa was getting pretty cranky waiting for me to help wrap presents so I didn’t manage to get their skirts sewn. I think making them will be a fun project to do together with my daughter now that the hustle and bustle are over.

I wasn’t planning it that way, but the horses I made are the perfect size for the Mae dolls to ride.

The plush horse pattern is also available as a paid pdf download from the Rumpled Quilt Skins website. It is written and put together very well, but it took me about twice as long to make each of these compared to the dolls. Some of the steps are a bit tricky, but wouldn’t be a problem if you’ve made stuffed animals before. I love the quilted surfaces and the fact that these horses can easily stand on their own.

For my boys I made bean-filled frogs from a free pattern available on the Ottobre Design website {click here}.

This pattern instructs you to use interfacing on all of the pieces, which you could leave out if you want, but it makes the frogs pretty sturdy feeling.  And you can’t see the lumps from the beans.

Now I’m about to go blog hopping to see what everyone else has been making. 

Happy New Year, everyone! Can’t wait to see what 2013 has in store…
