It’s my turn on the Pool Side Beach Party Tour! Check out the discount codes and giveaway at the bottom of the post!
So this isn’t actually what I had planned to make. Not at all, ha. But being the procrastinator that I am I left things a little late. (Plus I always underestimate how much time the behind scenes of blog tours take me!) Originally, I had planned to sew up a bunch doll beach things but I just wasn’t super motivated although I had the patterns all printed, the fabric chosen, etc. I just needed to sit down and sew.
Then I wanted to do a free motion applique and I started it but it’s just nowhere near to be finished so at the last minute I decided to whip up a cute little jellyfish softie instead of showing a half done FMA. The jellyfish took me about half an hour to make, most of that time was spent stuffing it!
Miss V knew right away that it was supposed to be a jellyfish. Silly Bean thought it was a rain cloud, ha.
I’m going to work on this again, it didn’t come out quite as round as I wanted so I’ll work on another version and try again. (Plus I think I’ll work on a rain cloud softie!) I think it’s cute though as is. The face at the moment is just drawn on, I’ll be embroidering on the face too for the next one. I like how the box corners look too, so I’ll keep that for the next jellyfish I make.
The dress Miss V is wearing is very summery and beach/pool appropriate too, no? I’ll have another post on that later!
I’ll be finishing up that FMA later today and will post about it on Saturday! Can’t wait to show you that!
