Hi! My name is Jen and I blog over at The Crafting Fiend. I'm fairly new to blogging and sewing (less than a year for both). I am married to my first love, a handsome Brit and we have a gorgeous 15 month old daughter who is a climber and seriously lacks fear and finds what should be scary fun (oh boy!). Today I have a tutorial for you and free pattern for making your own merry moose ornament.
To start you will need to print out (or trace onto paper from your computer screen - ya I've done that...) the
first cut out your pieces. For the eyes I used the nose pattern and just rounded it a bit.
Stitch on the eyes and then the nose. Use embroidery floss to do the little black bits in the eyes.
Next sandwich the antlers in between the front and back piece and start stitching around.
Add a bit of ribbon in at the top - be sure to stitch it in securely.
Once you've gotten nearly back to the start of your outside stitching stuff a little polyfill in if you want (I think it makes it cute) and then finish stitching the moose shut.
For your moose's scarf cut a piece of flannel 9.5" x .5", place the fabric right side down and wrap around the moose and knot it. I also gave it a teensy tiny stitch to hold it in place,
And the finished mooses (I know mooses isn't a word but I can't for the life of me remember what the plural for moose is and moses is fun to say...):
(ps. I also cut a little fringe into the scarf bottoms)
