Stuffed Platypus

June 14, 2010

Oddly, many of the crafts created in our house lately are being made by my oldest daughter, M. and many of them are for children.  We’ve had a lot of births and birthdays lately, which is why there are so many kid-centered crafts.  This time M. decided to whip up a stuffed animal the day before our cousin’s first birthday party.  She was looking for a stuffed monkey pattern, but didn’t find one that she felt comfortable making while short on time.  We did find a stuffed platypus pattern and decided that since you can’t just go to a store and expect to find a stuffed platypus that this also  had a nifty factor in addition to being easy.

Stuffed Platypus

This was a great project in addition to being quick because it uses a small amount of fabric. The denim that she used came from the lower 1/3 of  one side of a leg from old jeans and the feet and bill used very small scraps from a custom apron that she did, so some of those really small scraps that may have been tossed were useful.

    I was asked to make a Platipus for a friend who lives in Australia, she is coming home for a visit and wants me to make one for her. Thank you so very much for sharing the pattern with me. Betty.
