Time flies! Seems we were just rushing to finish a few Christmas stocking stuffers, and now it’s time to get a few “tuck-ins” made for the Easter basket! I have 3 or 4 little gifts I’ll be whipping up. Today I’d like to share a trio of cuties I made for the grandbabies. These three were a breeze to throw together and with the little addition of a pocket on the back for 2 fingers to slide in, these little puppets will provide hours of imaginative fun!
I used wool felt for durability, although if you’re concerned about wash-ability, go with one of the high quality synthetics. You can also make this out of cotton. I love the Woven Spider Wheel stitch for the eyes. (I told you I’d be using this stitch a lot! Check out the glossary for a quick look at how to make this stitch.) Because there are no buttons on this, it’s a perfect friend for all ages.
So, sew one or a basket full. I should warn you, they are rather addictive and satisfying to make! The pattern is featured in our FREE Open Patterns. Enjoy!
