I have a dislike of patterns. Someday, when I start actually sewing, that's going to pose a problem. However, this time it somehow worked out.
I was rummaging through my cloth collection, looking for something to make. I came across some fabric that reminded me of cactus. (A subject that I'm very familiar with here in Southern Arizona.) So I took my trusty sharpie, drew a shape directly onto the cloth, cut out four of them, and started sewing. Honestly I was just guessing on the shape of the pieces. By some miracle, it came out ok. But enough talking. Onto photos!
The flower is made of felt and some beads and sparkly things for embellishment in the center.
The bottom. I ran out of the green fabric, so I used this brown and tan batik-style print that reminded me of roots. I put a circle of cardboard in the bottom before sewing it up so that it stands nicely.
In case you're wondering, it's only my fourth or fifth plushie. It took a couple hours to make, all handstitched. It would have taken probably five minutes on a sewing machine.
