I love the work of Abby Glassenberg of While She Naps. It was her book, The Artful Bird that was a big influence on my bird making efforts. This week on her blog she featured a vintage pattern pamphlet with the most adorable animals. Since it is so old, it is now public domain so Abby made it available in PDF form. I downloaded it right away.
The pattern includes the bunny, a kangaroo and little roo, an elephant, a horse, a too adorable penguin, a pig wearing an apron and two dolls, a little boy and a little girl. The instructions are for machine sewing the toys, but I prefer hand stitching so I just cut the pattern to size (no seam allowance) and stitched away.
If you are interested in trying your hand at making these too cute toys, you can find the pattern here. I think the penguin is next on my list!
