1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / happy cloud and rainbow toy -- with TUTORIAL! on: July 19, 2012 12:35:20 PM
I like this little plush cloud and rainbow because it can be a toy, a teether, or even a nursery decoration for boys or girls.  It's easy to make, and great for using up little scraps of fabric!  I made this one from 100% stash fabrics and scraps.




Let's get started!

You'll need:


+ pattern (free download -- HERE!)
+ felt, fleece or minky fabric for the cloud - 10" x 14"  (25.4 cm x 35.6 cm)
+ fabric scraps* for rainbow strips
+ fabric marker
+ embroidery thread
+ needle and thread
+ sewing machine
+ stick for turning
+ iron
+ stuffing (I prefer Premium Poly-fil, as it's non-allergenic and made from recycled materials)
      * You can also use ribbons cut to 8" (20.3 cm) lengths, or bias tape, or rick rack....
~ Seam allowance - 1/4" (.6 cm)

Print. . . .

~ Print and cut out pattern pieces.  Be sure to print pattern at "actual size," and allow for printing outside printer area.

you can get the pdf pattern HERE
   

Prepare. . . .

~ Trace and cut out pattern from fabrics.
 


~ On one of the cloud pieces, mark the circles for the stuffing opening, and mark where you want the face features to go.


Embroider. . . .

~ On the right side of one of the cloud pieces, embroider your cloud's face.  I used 6 stands of embroidery thread.

 
~ I backstitched the mouth and eye outlines, and filled the eyes with a satin stitch.  Set aside for now.
 

Make the rainbow. . . .

~ Fold one strip of the rainbow's fabric in half lengthwise.
~ Stitch along that long edge, using a 1/4" seam allowance. . .


. . . and at the end, turn and sewing along the short edge.  You'll now have a tube with one end open, and one end closed.


~ Clip the corners close to the stitching for nice, crisp corners.


~ Turn the tube right-side out, using your turning stick (I use a skinny paintbrush, since all of my turning sticks / chopsticks have somehow become little boy drumsticks or weapons.) 
~ Press.
~ Repeat for the 5 remaining fabric strips.

Connect. . . .


~ Now take your embroidered cloud piece, and place the rainbow strips on the face, matching the raw edges of the strips with the bottom edge of the cloud.
 

~ Space them evenly if you like, leaving ~1" of cloud fabric on either side of the strips.

~ Pin the strips in place.


~ Sew the strips to the cloud, sewing very close to the edge. (~1/8")



~ Remove pins.
~ Now, fold the attached strips down, and pin them away from all other edges of the cloud.  (This is so the strips don't get caught in the seams when we sew the cloud pieces together.)




~ Place the remaining cloud, right side down, on the cloud-and-strip assemblage.


~ Pin in place.  Be sure to remember (and re-mark, if needed) the opening between the circles!



Sew. . . .

~ Sew the two cloud pieces together, starting at one circle (with a few reinforcing /back-and-forth stitches,) and stitching 1/4" from the edge. 
~ Go slowly around the curves and pivot carefully at the indentations and corners. 
~ Stop at the other circle, with a few reinforcing stitches here, too.


~ Stitch once more along the flat edge of the cloud, to reinforce the strips.


Clip. . . .

~ Clip notches inside the seam allowance along the curves, being careful not to clip the seam threads.  Cut notches into the deeper cloud indentations, and clip the corners along the cloud's bottom edge.  This will make all the difference in your cloud being bunchy and wrinkled, or smooth and properly puffy!


Turn. . . .

~ Reach inside -- carefully! -- and remove the pins from the strips.


~ Now, turn the cloud right-side out.  Take your time, as it's a little bit of a squeeze to get it all out of the opening. 
~ Run your turning stick gently along the inside of the cloud along the seams, pushing out stubborn corners and edges.


Stuff. . . .

~ Stuff your cloud with stuffing.  I used a lot of poly-fil to make it firm, but you can have it as squishy or plump as you like.  I meant to add a little core of lavender, but forgot... and that would have been a nice addition, I think!


Close. . . .

~ Pin the opening closed, making sure to tuck all the stuffing nicely inside.


~ Hand-stitch the opening closed with your needle and thread.  I use a ladder stitch, as it's pretty much invisible, but any stitch you're comfortable with will do.

Knot. . . or not. . . .




~ You can knot the ends of the strips of you'd like.  I think a teething baby would probably prefer it this way.  Donovan didn't care one way or the other.  He just wanted to roll around and chew on it. . . .






SUCCESS!

I hope you enjoyed the tutorial, and please - if you have any questions at all, just ask!  I'd love to hear what you think!  Smiley

And the fine print stuff -- Feel free to make these for personal or charitable use.  Please do not sell my pattern, or post it without permission.  As with all toys, supervise your child during play, and look for signs of wear and tear.

Gallery thread link:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=377075.0
# of Flakers:  ONE
*** One flaker, but this person had TWO partners.  She was to send 5 shirts to each partner, for a total of 10 shirts.  Since sending 10 shirts is quite a feat, I would appreciate TWO angels, one for each flaked-on swapper.

Details:  We would need 5 embellished shirts for a toddler and 5 embellished onesies for a baby.  They can be embellished with stencils, paint, applique, whatever... just NO iron-ons.  The shirt can be store-bought or hand-made (most people opt for store-bought.)  No extras, please.  

If you are interested in angel-ing for one of these swappers, please PM me, and I can provide more details if you'd like them.

Swapper #1
babalina58  <---- fiddlegirl8 is an ANGEL for babalina!  Smiley
Allergic to smoke.
In the US.
You would be crafting for:  an almost 3 yo boy, size 4t, short sleeve shirts

Likes:  He has a wist; also maybe a nice sugar skull shirt.  Likes blue, yellow, orange, red, brown, black. Prefer store-bought shirts.

Dislikes:  NO GREEN.  No cartoon charters (sponge bob, etc.), smart mouth shirts, PUFF PAINT, 3-d paint, Bling, nothing that he can pull off like googlies eyes,  tiedye, store bought applique, iron on stuff, foil stuff.
  

Swapper #2
barbolot <---- missmoppet is an ANGEL for barbolot!  Smiley
No allergies.
In the US.
You would be crafting for:  a newborn, gender unknown; onesies size 0-3 mos (no "newborn" size), or even 3-6 mos; long or short sleeves OK

Likes:  aqua, orange, red, blue, green, yellow, grey, black; stripes are cool, too.  Love bright colors, but I know they're hard to find in onesies... any color is fine.
** sea creatures, tattoo flash, tie-dye, monkeys, birds, Texas, kawaii, Dia de los Muertos, animals.... open to lots of ideas!  We love fun, happy, bright themes.

Dislikes:  pink, purple, neons
**Commercial/character types we dont watch TV.
**Nothing political or blasphemous; no snarky or dirty things, please.  
**No Texas flags, guns, longhorns (U of TX-type stuff.)
**No gore, scary things.

5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / A Week of Baby Onesies Swap Round 6 - Spring / Summer Edition! on: February 20, 2011 08:34:59 PM

lovingly handmade by laurasaurus in the '09 Spring Edition!

It's almost that time again -- Spring / Summer Baby Onesie Swap!!

This swap is for babies/toddlers sized newborn to 4T.  We'll be making 5 or 10 onesies / tees again.   If you choose to swap 10 onesies, you can choose to have one partner making all 10 of your onesies, or two partners making 5 shirts each.  Please also bear in mind that if we have an odd number of swappers, we may have to arrange a round robin-style partnering.  Smiley

Extras are discouraged, but my sweet swappers keep wanting to spoil their partners' babies!   Grin

The shirts can be store-bought or handmade.  Each shirt will be embellished in some way: applique, stencil, dyeing, embroidery, etc.  NO IRON-ONS will be allowed.  (Too many issues with them fading, cracking, peeling, etc.)

I'm thinking sign-ups next Sunday (Feb. 27th), with 2 weeks for sign-ups, and 5 weeks for crafting.  This would put send-outs mid-April.  We want this swap to be as stress-free as possible!

GOLF!  
**If you wanted to thrown in a Christmas shirt, that would be fine (I know crafting a Christmas shirt for a boy is tough though).

Dislikes:  I just can't put a pink shirt on my son, so nothing in that color family.

8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Tiny HAUNTED House Swap? on: September 06, 2010 10:27:34 AM
This house is actually a free printable one you can get here!

We had sooo much fun with the Tiny House Swap, and always meant to do a Round 2.  I don't know if there ever was one, and maybe I missed it(?)...  but I would love to do another round.   But, how 'bout with a little twist?  We could make tiny haunted houses!  What do you think?

*** The houses are made up to 4"x4" in size, max.
*** Made with whatever media you like.
*** Created with high level of skill.
*** No extras allowed.

We'd need to get sign-ups started, like, now, so we'll still have time to craft and send by Halloween.  Maybe it's too late.... but I hope not.   Undecided  My organizer slots are full right now, so I can't organize.  We'd need someone willing to organize it, too.

Here's the sign-up link to Round 1, with all the perameters and details.

Here's the AMAZING gallery.
