Felt friends for Lottie

Standard

The summer sew-along is technically over, but if you’re back from vacation and lamenting that you missed it or want something to sew that’s a little bigger than Lottie stuff, remember if you missed the first deadline, you can enter until July 31 on this form and you will get your Nosy pattern Aug 1.  Here’s some inspiration for you:

One of the reasons I bought forest friend Lottie was her cute packaging, but sadly, she didn’t come with as many fun accessories as my other Lotties.  Given her name, she clearly needed some “forest friends” so I created a few from felt, using the artwork on her packaging as inspiration.  After that, my other Lotties begged for their own friends too!  If you’re looking for a project to use to help you teach hand sewing to a child, this is a great choice since they require only one type of stitch, and can be made quickly from small scraps of felt.
