|Pattern Description: |
Toy patterns with the option of making a teddy bear, blanket, animal blanket or a reversible chicken/egg. I made the chicken/egg so far.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, very much so, I was pleased with it overall.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, there aren't many instructions, but that's ok, as there aren't that many pieces to put together. The whole thing was pleasantly easy and straightforward.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I liked the variety of patterns, you can make a lot of different toys, and I liked that the chicken was reversible. This was the biggest draw for me, I used to have reversible toys as a kid, and I saw this and couldn't resist.
White and pale yellow fibre fleece, with bright orange felt for the beak and feet.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I didn't sew the feet together, I just made two feet instead of four, as I made them out of felt, they're not going to fray, so I made them a little smaller than the pattern to allow for no seam allowance. Also, instead of embroidering the eyes, I simply drew them on with a permanent marker. It worked well, as they were small enough.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I'm going to sew it again, in different colours. It was so quick and easy and fun to make. Also, I will try the teddy bear pattern at some stage soon. I most certainly would recommend it to others, share the joy!
A cute little pattern, good instructions and fun to make. Grab a copy and try it out!
