I recently got some fabric designed by Kokka. It was so pretty that I didn't want to cut into it. Do you ever find yourself with this problem? Well, I was trying to think up the perfect project because the last thing I wanted to do was waste the fabric. As I analyzed the print, it reminded me of all those fabulous handmade stuffies. That thought translated into miniature stuffed animals for my daughter's doll house. So I made a mini stuffed animal, then another, then another and I couldn't stop! They're just so addicting. I'm already thinking of making mini ornaments, child brooches, and ponytail holders out of them as well.
Fabric - I used Wonder Forest designed by Kokka
Cut out two animals with about a 1/4 inch seam around the animal. You'll want to leave a little more fabric at the bottom of the animal (refer to picture).
Place right sides together. Hand sew a running stitch around the animal (refer to picture). Make sure to leave plenty of room to turn right side out.
Turn right side out using tweezers. Stuff with polyfill. Tuck the bottom of doll inside so you can't see the raw edge. Sew closed. Done.
