Garden Snail Stuffie - easy DIY needlework how to
Hello, friends especially needleworkers!
Yesterday I only could make a needlework project because it took much time, but the result was soft and cute in blue color. This time i made a garden snail with the combination of felt and cotton fabrics, my first experience in combiniting both fabrics . And i hope you like it like I do.
Project Time: approximately 7-8 hours
Difficulty: Quite difficult for me
- French knot
- Whipped stitch
- Blanket stitch
- Back stitch
- Invisible stitch
- Running stitch
Materials & things needed:
- Felt fabrics in baby blue and soft blue
- Fabrics blue and white stripes
- Scissors (small craft scissors and a larger one, paper scissors)
- Embroidery floss
- Sewing thread in white
- Sewing needle
- Filling stuff (I used dacron fiber)
How to make it:
I pinned the stripe fabric from the back, around 3-4 cm width, the length was around 15-20 cm. Then with the white sewing thread I back stitched it. After finished I cut it off.
Then, I sew one of it’s side. Also it turned it up.
Next I put the dacron inside then closed it with the invisible stitch, roll it then sew to make the snail’s shell. The shell part is now finished.
Then I cut the body. For the left and right, I used the baby blue color. For the bottom I used the soft blue color.
I also made the top/upper body part with the same soft blue. Trimmed a bit (I made for they would match each other). After that I blanket stitch to join the left and upper part.
I then also join the right part. Then I made two black french knots for the eyes on both body side. Then I sew the shell on it. I hid the sewing behind the body.
Next I did the running stitch to join the back part with left and right part. Before I closed it I put some dacron inside too.
VOILA, now a super cute garden snail plushie is finished. Isn’t it cute?
