I have created something truly delicious. Toast. he he. They're SO cute! I'm not going to lie, I got the idea from someone else. Aiwa, a wonderfully talented plushie maker, is the one who inspired me. I saw a link through How About Orange's blog. Here's the link to her tutorial to make a Plush Toast Keychain.
They were just too cute to pass up! I've never done a felt plushie - or any plushie for that matter - but this seemed simple enough, and adorable! If you looked at the link you will notice that her plushie is lighter than mine. Well, I didn't compare her pictures to my felt and just used what I thought would work. I think that it works great, but it looks like I have created wheat toast. lol. I do have white though, so I will have to use that and the lighter brown to make white bread.
I bought more colors because I saw another picture of some Breakfast Plushies she has made. I would really like to try them out. I got enough colors to make the toast, egg, coffee, and pancake. I can possibly make the milk, although I don't have any blue felt. We will see what I can accomplish. I showed these plushie pictures to some friends and they've all seemed to really like the coffee cup. I was rather fond of it myself.
Another cute plushie idea would be this cute Cubed Series of animals. I saw the link to the Cubed Bunny Tutorial at How About Orange (in the same post as the toast plushie, see link above). I think that I will try to finish what breakfast plushies I would like to make and then we will see if I will attempt to make any more.
I bought this really cute little case as my beginner sewing kit, since I'm not sure how big I will be into it. It was just $3.99 at Michaels, not too bad.
This kit has served me well for my first project anyway. I may need to buy a few more colors of thread, like bright yellow for the egg and pancake (butter). I do have light yellow but we will see how that works out. I'm sure I'll be posting more pictures soon since this seems to be addicting!
All credit needs to be given to Aiwa for the idea. I did make the plushies but she was the genius behind it. Please visit her website by clicking on her name above ^^.
