A while ago I made a Bear cushion for our elder grandson, which I am pleased to say that he has really taken to. Recently, however, our son told us that our younger grandson has also taken a shine to the cushion, so in the interests of filial harmony a request was put in for a second cushion for our littlest grandson.
As I didn't want to make a replica of the first one, I trawled through all sorts of cushions on Pinterest until I finally decided that I would have a go at a sheep cushion.
I had never worked with fleece before so that was the first challenge!
As you can see, however, it turned out fine :)
The front and back of the cushion are 16.25" fleece circles, the face is grey felt with scraps of white and black for the eyes which I have raw-edge appliqued to the fleece backing.
this tutorial by Shiny Happy World that uses Soft & Stable as wadding. Now, as it happens I had a strip of Soft & Stable left over from the Catch-All Caddy, so problem solved!
My first attempt at the ears wasn't very successful as I made them so slim at the bottom I found it impossible to turn them right side out. The second attempt, which you can see here, was much better!
I was really pleased with how this turned out and hope that she will be as much cuddled as her Bear companion!
