I actually finished this custom piece at the end of February but I needed to wait because it was a March birthday gift.
My good friend’s Mother loves chocolate poodles. She asked me to make a stuffed one for her Mom’s birthday. I looked at dozens of pictures of Chocolate Standard Poodles and tried to find a pattern for one. I found a bunch of crocheted poodle patterns, but no sewing ones. So I decided to try and make my own by using the Puppy pattern from Abby Glassenberg’s Stuffed Animals book and tweaking it to look like a Poodle.
I changed the shape of the nose, ears and tail. I also added a top “hair” piece. The materials used were brown fleece and a frizzy cuddle which I think made the puppy really look like a poodle!
Isn’t she so cute!!
I didn’t have any birthday gifts to get done this month, but I did make a stuffed friend for my best friend from high school. She needed some TLC after a hospital stay so I sent her a care package and included a kitty to cheer her up. I was testing a smaller version of my monkey/kitty pattern. The kitty turned out cute but maybe a little creepy. I sized up the pattern slightly and need to test again but this little kitty did it’s job in cheering up my bestie!
She’s smaller than my sewing machine!
Two cute stuffies this month! One original jeni ro design, one partially original jeni ro! Fun stuff!!!
