I haven't worn corduroys in a long time, but luckily, I cut up a couple of pairs many years ago and saved them for a future project. I sewed up this monkey and owl for my twins as a Christmas gift.
This one is my favorite. I know that owls have been super trendy lately, but I think they're so cute. I like the frayed look that the puppets have, and putting them together this way saved a lot of time, especially with all of the appliqued layers.
I'm still not so sure about the monkey. I didn't use a pattern for either of them. I drew the animals out on graph paper to make sure that they were symmetrical. I still can't believe that they even slightly resemble what I hoped they would. I. Don't. Draw.
They are a hit, especially because I tucked a little squeaker inside each mouth that I saved from the inside of a dog toy. The coordinating fabrics for each are from my stash of random scraps.
I don't know, maybe this one is starting to grow on me.
