I love sewing llama softie patterns so much, I must be trying to sew them all! Here’s my review of Gingercake’s Lulu Llama sewing pattern. I also have a free llama softie pattern, plus I sewed this llama pattern from Jennifer Jangles too!
I bought a yard of faux rabbit fur for this project (the pattern only calls for 1/2 yard) and that 1 yard of fur has been the gift that keeps on giving! So far I have cut out 1 llama, 5 owls, and a puppy (still coming), and I still have about a fat quarter size left!
Note: the faux rabbit fur from Joanns (it’s so soft!) does have a bit of stretch to it, and the Lulu Llama pattern calls for fur with no stretch at all. I fused some Pellon Shapeflex 101 woven interfacing to the back of my llama pieces, as Virginia suggests, and had no problems at all.
Who can resist a face like this??? I still consider myself a beginner at hand embroidery, so I was glad that Virginia’s instructions were very easy to follow.
I love the sweet details like cotton fabric inside the ears and tail – and the matching llama blanket.
And I can’t wait for Christmas when my kids get to open up all the toys I’ve been sewing and hiding in my closet!
