Figured seeing I am such a Moda junkie fan....how could I not use Moda to make my little helper.
Taking my time cutting out fabric from the "Nature's Chorus" I was getting pretty excited about mine looking like Khris' little fella.
Coming together rather nicely and starting to take shape.
Next came stuffing the body.
Ow ow ow!!!!
Get that fiber stuffing into the body!! After awhile my finger started to hurt and as I had left my chop stick home, I ended up borrowing Khris'.
A little tip Khris told me. When stuffing softies is to spray the fabric with water and it'll have a better shape at the end of the stuffing session.
Hettie on the left and "him" on the right. I don't think "him" has a name. I called her Hettie as I love to visit a local quilting shop called "Hettie's Patch".
Already working her little shell off, with some pins in her shell.
I am very excited about making Hettie as after all the rewarding effort we put into the flood appeal, having a bit of fun was just such a buzz.
Shhhhh.... I have an elephant pincushion pattern as well. Hhmmm this could become an addictive problem.
You're only limited by your imagination.
