This week we are all about stitching and sewing soft toys and today we’ve got a special treat: Mariska Vos Bolman, author of Sew Cute to Cuddle, shows you exactly how to make the most adorable stuffed toys in two fantastic soft toy sewing tutorial bundles and video kits.
The Toy Hippo Sewing and Video Kit includes all the materials (including some rather delicious designer fabric – Violette by Amy Butler), you need to make Mary the Hippo, one of the 12 patterns for adorable stuffed animals in Sew Cute to Cuddle. As well as the materials you also receive a 30 minute step by step video where expert sewer and pattern designer, Mariska, shows you exactly how to make your very own ‘Mary’. The kit also includes the written step by step pattern to follow alongside the video.
If gorgeous, big hippos aren’t your thing and you’re more of a cheeky monkey kind of person, don’t despair, we have also created
a video tute for Patrick the Monkey – a super cute cheeky monkey also from the pages of Sew Cute to Cuddle. With his big ears and curly tail, Patrick is definitely going to be a favourite with children and grown ups alike!
We’ve made another 25 minute video with author Mariska, to show you exactly how to sew Patrick so he will come to life in no time! The Toy Monkey Sewing Project Video and Pattern Download includes a PDF download of the pattern and the video tutorial.
Please let us know if you make Patrick or Mary and share your makes on our Facebook page – we’d love to see how you get on!
