GalPalsGiveawayImage I’m excited about a collaboration I’ve done with Sew Mama Sew and have written a guest blog post on Tools and Tips to Simplify Plush Toy Making plus this doll giveaway.  Read about the tools I use to simplify tricky steps when sewing plushies and tips on making better finished toys. MainToolLayout I’ve been a long time fan of Sew Mama Sew and consider them the queen bees of sewing.  I admire their vast collection of sewing tutorials with TONS of amazing free patterns.  I learn something new every time I read their blog.  I also like how they bring together a large community of sewers and crafters making, teaching, and sharing beautiful handmade pieces.  It is a great blog to learn, to create, and to get inspired. In conjunction with the guest post, there’s a giveaway.  The giggly doll in little pigtails (above) is all dressed up and excited to meet her new playmate!  Comment below on what your current favorite color is to enter.  The giveaway ends Monday evening, October 20th.

    My favorite color has always been turquoise but I love the soft blue you’ve used with the coordinating accessories.

    I thoroughly enjoyed your tips and tricks! Where on earth did you find those tiny pinking shears? One thing I never thought of was using the straw to stuff too! Der! That is a huge help!! Oh and my fav colors are turquoise and pink. Thx for the tips and the chance to win!

      Those tiny shears are hemostats that can be purchased on Amazon–just type in hemostat in the search bar. It is an essential tool if you make a lot of plush toys.

    I’ve always been a fan of sunshiney yellow. Thanks for the great tips and tools for plush making on Sew Mama Sew! I always wondered how to make those chopsticks and tubes work…

    Some great tips! Favourite colour right now is purple (usually is) or puce – which is a purpley pink – kind of an odd name for a pretty colour.
