I love to look at all the blogs out there! In January of 2007, I didn't even know what a blog was. I was talking to a lady at work about sewing and she started talking about blogs. I had to interrupt her to find out exactly what she was talking about. She wrote down the names of a couple of her favorites, I went home and started checking them out and started linking from links and on an on. Probably 2 hours later, I came up for a breath! Sliced cheese! That's what it's like. Recently, I was over at cherry tomato and saw a picture of the wonderful fabric pears she made. I had to make one. This is the result so far. I don't know what has come over me, I don't consider myself a plushie kind of person, but these are so cute! I think I am starting to develop a plushie love......
Here is the pattern I used if anyone is interested:
UPDATE: to make the pear, cut out four of the pattern pieces of chosen material. With pieces right sides together, sew the sides together making sure for each piece to match up the "curvier" sides together and the less curvy sides together. Make sure to leave an opening along one of the seams for turning and stuffing later. Sew top of pear together then turn so the right side is out. Stuff with your stuffing of choice and hand sew opening closed. Cut a small piece of material into a leaf shape and sew onto the end of hemp cord (I used a zigzag stitch). Using a very large eyed needle (I used one I had for knitting), thread the hemp cord and then starting at the top of the pear, push the needle from the top of the pear to the bottom, basically sewing through the pear. Tie a knot in the hemp cord flush with the bottom of the pear and cut the hemp cord.
You are done!
