We Lived Happily Ever After: SNEAK PEAK (which stuffed animal did I pick?)

SNEAK PEAK (which stuffed animal did I pick?)

If you follow me on Facebook and Instagram you know that I was torn between making a Narwhal Whale and a Loch Ness Monster for my next sewing project.

I was asked by BuzzFeed to come up with a felt stuffed animal pattern and tutorial for them... ummm YES! :)


So by popular vote, the winner is *drum roll*


NESSIE!

I've been having a blast making her. I'm still working on the body now but the pattern is fully developed, and I already have her pretty much stuffed. I couldn't resist choosing a color of felt that matched June's playroom.


Yes, there is a half naked baby in the above photo... And no, I do not let my toddler run around naked almost every day (did I pass the lie detector?) 

June LOVES her Loch Ness Monster- she thinks its a giant duck and wants to ride on it's back... but sewing + a baby using your project as a rocking horse don't mix well- so I actually had to sneak this monster into a different room to protect it from my little monster!

I can't wait for her to play with it when it's done!

I still want to do the narwhal at some point- they are one of my favorite animals (probably because they are so unicorn like, haha!)

Stay tuned for the whole project coming soon!
