I just love the Purl Bee’s tutorials. They posted another winner yesterday, and I just had to drop everything and make one: the purl frog.
Meet Florian. He’s a mellow, happy sort of fellow, made from April Cornell’s Sonnet fabric.
If you like him, you should make your own and post him at the purl frog groupon flickr.
I did stray from the instructions when making him.
- Print the template, and cut along the dashed SEWING line rather than the solid cutting line.
- Trace the sewing line on the wrong side of a rectangle of fabric. Make sure you have at least 1/4″ of fabric all the way around the template.
- Pin another rectangle to the first, right sides together.
- Sew on the marked line.
- Cut out 1/4″ from the stitched line after sewing.
It just saves you from having to cut twice and match up the pieces.
