Sunday Silhouettes – Stuffed Toy

Stop the presses! I used my sewing machine today..woohoo!  Tried out the sewing fabric interfacing today and made this stuffed bird.

Stuffed Bird-2
I found the design I wanted to use and opened it in the Silhouette software.

Ungrouped it so that I could cut the individual pieces from different fabric and resized them.  Copied each shape and flipped one copy of each shape horizontally so I had a mirror image as I was going to cut from the right side of the fabric.

To prepare the fabric just iron on the interfacing and cut any excess fabric off.  Send it through your Silhouette machine and you get the pieces as shown below.

I then stitched the yellow pieces to the pink and the brown to the yellow for each side.  Then put the two sides together (right sides together) and stitch around leaving an opening so that you can stuff it.  Turn right side out, stuff and stitch up the opening.  Add an eye and you have a cute stuffed animal.

After I was done I realized that I could have stuffed this with catnip for the kitties.  Oh well next time!
