Exclusive blog content: Angel Plushie by Tracy Easson

A start to a busy week here on the blog!
Today we are sharing a fab step by step from Tracy Easson. In our January issue, Tracy shares a fabulous plushie with us. A superb painted face, Tracy style! This extra content just for the blog shows us how to create your own plushie!

Step-by-step… Creating a Simple Mini Art Doll

1 Prepare fabric by soaking in a mixture of cold water and coffee, leave to dry.

2 Ink up stamp with an Archival ink pad and then stamp onto fabric.

 3 Place another piece of fabric behind and machine or hand stitch together, remembering to leave the bottom open. Repeat three times.

4 Use a soft toy filler to stuff, using a pencil to push it into the smallest spaces.

 5 Stitch the bottom closed.

To finish the project: Cut away the excess fabric and used to stamp the sentiment onto. Fix it in place with a few stitches. Complete with a little rusty bell held in place with a safety pin.

We love her Tracy, thank you so much for sharing!
