Like Peas in a Pod

Keeping in line with the Sweet Pea (baby gift) theme I have going one, I present my latest project: Peas in a Pod Plush!

I used Choly Knight’s pattern to make this stuffy. I had some fabric left over from my wasabi project so I wound up using those for the 3 peas. As for the faces, I used the same ones from the sushi plush that I sewed since they were already loaded onto my machine and they were the same size as what I needed for these.

I didn’t have any green minky fabric on hand, so I wound up making a trip to Joann’s and settled on a dark green plush (side note – this fabric is much thicker than a normal minky and sheds even worse. It was fine for a small project, but if it was any larger, I might dislike the material overall) for the exterior and more of the sweet pea fabric for the inside (because you know I like to coordinate). I did skip the zipper – not just because zippers in plush can be a pain in the rear, but because this is an infant toy and I didn’t want little fingers getting pinched.

Overall this was a very easy project to put together – it’s a great pattern to dip your toe into plush making and the results are adorable. Now on to a few more pea themed gifts to make this package complete!
