One of my absolute favorite things to make are plush toys! They are so fun and rewarding! They make great gifts for kids and funky adults like me and my sister! Every Halloween I have to make some kind of plushie. This year I decided to make a little cartoon candy corn for Hannah. Here’s the how-to…..
What You Need:
*1 sheet each of white, yellow, and orange felt
*Marking Pen or Pencil
*Black and Orange Embroidery Floss and Embroidery Needle
*Sewing Machine and Coordinating thread
Here’s The Pattern:
First, cut out your felt pieces. Draw in your face with a marking pen or pencil.
Stitch on the face with your black embroidery floss. I used all six strands and used a simple back stitch embroidery stitch.
Once your face is stitched you are ready to stitch your pieces. line up the top of the bottom piece with the bottom of the middle piece, right sides together. Stitch together with a 1/2″ seam allowance.
Open up the seams and lightly press open with your fingers a few times or a cool iron.
Stitch the top to the middle with right sides facing. Do the same thing with the other pieces. You should end up with two candy corns. Lay the front and back together with right sides facing each other. Pin all the way around, matching the seams at the sides.
Stitch all the way around your candy corn leaving a small opening in the bottom for turning and stuffing.
Turn the candy corn right side out through the hole in the bottom.
Stuff your candy corn with fiber fill or other stuffing of your choice.
Whip stitch the opening in the bottom closed with some orange thread. To finish off, tie some ribbon around the neck in a bow.
Isn’t he adorable! I named him Carl. My sister loved him and he is now residing in her room! I would have made one for myself, but Beau would have destroyed it, since anything with stuffing automatically becomes his. I hope you stitchers out there enjoy this little pattern! I can’t wait to see your cute little candy corns! I’ll be back tomorrow with a no sew trick or treat bag! Until then…
