I am teaching at a summer camp and was asked to make a little plush to have at the table for a “summer camp show” this weekend. I had this sketch in my little sketchbook and loved the simplicity of the shape. I wanted the students to be able to see what a very simple pattern would look like once you added some nice features.
I’m going to have the students work on a much smaller scale so that they can finish a piece in one session, or at least come very close. They’ll move from pattern, through cutting, stitching, adding embellishments, to stuffing.
You can find more info on the camp, here.
