Yesterday I posted asking how to go about making a plush moose and trying to get some help with the pattern I had started making myself, http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=129070.0
) and thanks to a suggestion in that thread by Eliea, I used the pattern from http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=10382.0
as my inspiration. Here is my finished result:
I also added a scarf to see how that would look - it was actually my dog's bandana, so I think I'll either knit little scarves for the 4 moose I need to make by Christmas, or go purchase some baby-sized ones.
If you'd like to see the entire set of images, including my "in-process" ones, they're at http://s122.photobucket.com/albums/o252/pinktoque/craftster/moose/
Thank you so much Eliea, for pointing me in the right direction, and Sewing Stars for posting the pattern.
This was my first moose, and as I mentioned before, I need to now make 3 more. I made a few little mistakes here and there on this first one, but am sure the next 3 will be much better now that I've gotten the hang of it. I must mention that I'm jealous that Sewing Stars can pop these out in an hour cut to finish... I really need to get a sewing machine, or at least a portable one. Hand sewing takes forever, and I bet they'd turn out a little bit better with more even stitches.
Anyway, that was my first attempt at a plushie inspiration I found at this site! I hope to make many, many more in the future now - thanks for all of the help, fellow craftsters!
