A Piggy, a Bunny, a Kitty and a Bear

I have some good news to share tonight, my new collection of Pocket Stufflings is finally completed!  I am delighted to share them with you and will be working very hard to make the patterns for them available by early next week!  Here they are...

So, from left to right - Anchovy Kitten, Petula Piggy, Tinker Teddy and Beatrice Bunny.  All are made from hand woven felt and completely hand stitched.  For the boys, I made short overalls with cross-over straps - they close in the front with snaps and are edged in contrasting blanket stitch.  The girls wear dresses with working pockets and I've added beaded lace at the hems and/or buttons and beads down the centre of the neckline.  All are available in my shop.

The Pocket Stufflings will be made into two separate patterns, each featuring a boy and a girl. 

The Kitty and Piggy.

The Teddy and Bunny.

As usual, I will try to make the patterns very easy to follow and will also include hand drawn illustrations at each step of the process.  These would be perfect for little ones to carry around with them wherever they go and are very sweet together as a set.  The only draw back to making them is that you might not want to give them up!

Please be on the look out for my next post as I'll be doing a very quick pattern GIVEAWAY for these little Stufflings before we leave for our holidays at the end of next week.  If all goes well, the patterns should be ready by the end of the weekend and the draw would take place next Thursday, the 18th of August.

Enjoy your weekend,
