Posted in Special Offers on Monday the 17th August 2015 by Crafty Crafter
Hi de Hi Crafters!
I had to double take when I researched this pattern. Had I typed the number in correctly? Was there a misprint? No. No there was not! This week's POW
is designed by the marvelous Ellie Mae and is 100% definitely a trio of adorable stuffed animals!
I'm going to write this and pretend that I'll be sewing one of these for my partner's niece, but we all now that it's almost completely for me. That hippo must be mine! the fun thing with this pattern is you only need a fat quarters to create each animal (2 fat eighths make the Elephant and the Hippo, with a fat quarter and a fat eighth for the Giraffe) so you can have a lot of fun mixing and matching Quilting Fabrics
, completely tailoring it to your wants and needs.
What about little Ele?
Having done a little bit of maths, a fat eighth is just little smaller than a size of A4 so why not go wild with some felt fabric
"Won't that be a bit plain for you K.B.?" I hear you cry. Yes it would, had we not just received a whole new range of Camelot Fabrics Felt
! They are to die
for. I'd team this above orange with this gorgeous Mandala Print
below for the ears and tummy. I think the Jaffa Orange Felt
would really bring out the deep yellow/orange the Mandala print is in.
Now for Gerri you need a full fat quarter and a fat eighth (Gerri got a lot of neck!)
This is a nice Easy pattern to get in to, particularly if you want something to do with the kids over the holidays, and for just £4.50 you're really onto a winner!
Be sure to share your makes!
