The 9patch game

The game 9patch continues.
Even I am the part of designers team I was slightly nervous after sewing the first block.
I decided on recycling and using corduroy shirts so combining different colors seams a little bit difficult.
Adding new colors to this block made me calm.

And the place in whole project.

The girl - paper pieced stuffed doll

After finishing the boy I decided to continue the story and designed a girl for him.
Some days ago they met them and fell in love immediately.

The idea for making these guys came to me two years ago, but I couldn't find the proper shape.
At the beginning of May after  making some prototypes I was satisfied with the result.
Now they are a couple.
You can find the pattern at Craftsy HERE.
Even you are a beginner you can make it with more attention to the small pieces for the shoes.
I made the girl with closed eyes and long lashes - she looks so shy.
She is wearing in hands a beautiful bags as a real woman.

The very interesting detail is about the necklace.
I don't have in mind some jewelry except the bracelet at the wrist, but the neck looks "empty".

The chainstitched necklace looks so cute addition.

The girl is about 7.5 inches tall and the boy is 8 inches tall.
Some friends of mine adviced me to enlarge them.
Hm, what a good addition!
Anyway till then grab the pattern from HERE.

There was a boy - paper pieced stuffed doll

The work goes easy after a long time of thinking about both the idea and details.
I have made some prototypes before I got the shape right.
So proud to share with you.

I like paper piecing and design a pattern is not quite complicated to me.
After I found the perfect shape it was funny to finish the first doll, created this way.
Don't wait and go to grab the pattern from HERE.

Before stuffing:

There left a small step to the finish - sleep stitch the bottom.

The result - a nice doll to play with.

 You can get the pattern from CRAFTSY.

 Stay tuned for the next my toys!
