September is National Sewing Month
I have frantically been trying to finish Booga's birthday present complete with pattern, and tutorial but I am only at 50% on the plush toy and 75% on the pattern. In other words this has taken way more time than I had anticipated! I know everyone is curious what am I making for the Booga? A stuffed Toby the Tram Engine - it even has trim. This project has a ton of little pieces so I am gluing and then sewing everything because I don't want to lose anything. At first this pattern was going to be a nice simple box but with most things I do I wanted it to look like the actual item so he slowly go more and more detail. Several hours later he was finished (pattern wise). As I sit here gluing each piece down I am questioning my sanity and the what the hell was I thinking has come into play already.
I am well aware this violates copyright so I am NOT profit from this in anyway - i.e. sell the pattern or make this for profit. I am making this for my almost two year old son who is obsessed with Toby for his birthday. If I finish it today I will post it as soon as I finish it so everyone to see.
