How do you say “bandwagon” in Japanese?June 19, 2006 at 11:01 pm | Posted in Sewing/Crafts | 4 Comments
I finally broke down and ordered a Japanese craft book I’d been wanting for months. It’s even more wonderful than I thought it would be. I’d first encountered the book via a tutorial on craftster.org that included a scan of one of the book’s patterns. With that pattern, I made my first plush animals ever:
I knew that I wanted to make the duck pattern as soon as I got the book. I’m totally in love with the ones that Stephanie from littlebirds made.
Meet Spats the Duck! He’s made of green wool felt I found at a thrift store and a cotton print that I’ve had for years.
Edit: Spats has been claimed by my friend’s three-year-old Jack and re-named “Quacky Quacky.” When Jack met Q2, he grinned from ear to ear and immediately started singing and making the duck dance. I’ll post a pic of them together sometime soon.
