December Stuffie of the Month – A Snowman!

December 29, 2014

It’s time for my last Stuffie of the Month – a fun Snowman from Melly & Me.

This cutie is made all out of cotton, so I got to use some fun prints.

I followed the optional directions in the pattern to make a pieced scarf.  Small cuts of two different fabrics sewn together.  It was a bit of work, but it turned out pretty cute.  The directions were easy to follow.

Snowflake really turned out cute and looks great with my other snowman in my Christmas/Winter décor.

To recap my thoughts on this pattern:

  • Cute finished stuffie (CHECK)
  • Straightforward construction (CHECK)  The instructions do not include any pictures but the written instructions were easy to understand.
  • Pattern layout easy to read.  (CHECK)
  • Full size patterns provided. (CHECK)
  • Check out Melly & Me for a ton of cute stuffie patterns!

Things I learned from the whole year of making stuffies!

  • I really do love making stuffed animals!  There is just something about completing an stuffie and giving it that first hug!  And then giving it to a child – now that’s the best!
  • I have learned a ton making all of the stuffies from different designers – how to layout patterns, etc.
  • I really can say that I am better at sewing stuffies now!  My construction has improved, my hand sewing has improved – all good things!

Thanks for reading my stuffie of the month pattern reviews this year!  I really had fun discovering new stuffed animals designers and making some seriously cute stuffies!!
