Today we're going to attach the tail to your monkey. Up until this point you could use the back stitch or the double running stitch on everything. I've been demonstrating all the steps in this sew along with the double running stitch.
The Golden Lion Tamarin is our very first pattern and to celebrate we're doing a sew along! Today is the 4th part of the sew along where we are going to discuss finishing the monkey's face: the eyes, mouth, nostrils and brow.
The face is a really fun part of making a felt animal. This is where your critter really starts to come to life as you give it personality with a facial expression.
Welcome to day 3 of the sew along! Today we are going to start the face for our monkey and talk about the double running stitch
In the pattern, we show how to attach the grey face piece using the back stitch. The back stitch is great to use on any piece where the back side is hidden. When you use the back stitch, the back side of what you're sewing isn't very pretty. It is perfect for something like the face shape on the head.
You may remember this cute little monkey from March Monkey Madness. She was one of the most popular monkeys from the month long celebration so she seemed a fun choice for our first pattern.
We want making a Squshie to be a great experience so we thought with this 1st pattern it would be fun to do a sew along! Here on the blog we are going to go over all the steps of making the monkey, focusing extra on the parts that our pattern testers found a little tricky.
It is finally here! The very first Squshies pattern! Now you can make your very own Golden Lion Tamarin Ornament. If that news wasn't exciting enough for a limited time we are offering our pattern at a special sale price....50% off!
