So I just got hooked on trying my hand at making plush animals, and I kind of like it. Here are a few things I made up with links to patterns.

I really like this bunny from Martha Stewart

Another really super cute bunny better suited for little hands

A unique style of bear, but still adorable...just maybe not in green plaid...he looks a little like gumby.

Folk art style bear. I feel like this could be made into a cat with a little adjustment.

Cute bear, but such a headache. He'll be headless until Friday since I'm out of stuffing. This tutorial was terrible. The instructions were extremely vague and the photos were of very little help. I had to do a ton of tweaking to get this to look normal. She says beginners can do it because it's super easy, but I disagree. I would suggest intermediate to advanced sewers only.

And finally, a green and white bird. I'm planning to make more and turn it into a mobile for a baby shower I'll be attending soon.

Wow, you have been busy, and nice to have a critique of a pattern.  I love the bird, and the mobile will be great. Do you plan on sizing the pattern down and up to get different sizes?

I didn't even think about resizing the bird, but I think that's a great idea! I know for sure that I want to enlarge a few of the others like the Folk art bear, because he's super cute Smiley
