If I didn't get myself into gear this weekend and create some goodies on the sewing machine, I was going to put myself under house arrest until I did! The arrival of a close friend's baby provided some additional motivation. Instead of buying a toy for her, I thought, "Why not make one?" So I did...a cute little duck.
First I cut out the shape I wanted. I was trying to emulate the design of everyone's favourite childhood toy - the rubby ducky.
I stitched the patches on first for the beak and wings before joining the main panels.
The main panels were sewn together inside out and I left a small opening at the bottom for the stuffing.
