A Sweet Toy for our Baby Girl!

Remember a while back when I said that I wanted to make THIS adorable pattern for Lovebug? Well I'm FINALLY finished! Let me tell y'all now... it's not an easy pattern, but I think the result was worth all the hard work! Here's what you need...

I used more of the Wee Woodland fabric by Moda, since I wanted it to match the nursery. You just need the pattern, 5 colors of fabric, muslin, heavy weight interfacing, thread, poly-fil (not pictured,) and a chopstick for stuffing.

The only advice I have for completing this project is to take it SLOW & follow the pattern exactly. You might wanna brush up on your hand stitching skills too! I ended up doing a few steps each night and taking my time with all the hand stitching. I really love how it turned out!

I'm so excited to see it in the nursery! I'm sure it will just be a decoration for quite a while, but it's still fun to handmake things for our little Lovebug!

Have a great weekend!

P.S. I'm linking up to the parties on my sidebar!


  1. Love, love, love it. You rock, Sis.

  2. SO stinkin cute!!!! OK... ready for another bump picture set :) I can't wait to see that little lovebug!!!!!

  3. I have always wanted the Dwell stackables, but making my own would be WAY more fun and special. I may have to check out that pattern. Yours turned out beautifully. Great work!!! I am sure your kiddo will eat them up (possibly literally during those teething months.
