HALLOWEEN DOG ACCESSORIES
WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
- 30cm of Fleece in red, white and black
- Card and pencil
- Sewing machine and thread
- Hobby fill
- Needle and thread
Step 1 - Draw your spooky shapes onto card using the pencil. We chose a bone, bat and devil's fork. If you are not confident to draw the shapes yourself, you can find many templates online. Draw a 1cm seam allowance around your finished design.
Step 2 - Cut out templates from card and trace around onto the fleece fabric with a pen. Use scissors to cut out the patterns, you will need 2 pieces of each design.
Step 3 - Pin pattern pieces together with right sides facing in ready to sew.
Step 4 - Sew around your pattern pieces with a 1cm seam allowance but leave a 5cm opening for turning through. Use scissors and snip into the seam allowance around the curves of your designs to help create clean lines once the toys are turned through.
Step 5 - Turn the designs right side out through the gap you left in step 4 and use a pencil or pin to poke out the end of any pointy sections.
Step 6 - Stuff each toy with hobby fill, ensure the fill is stuffed into all corners of your design and the toy is nice and full.
Step 7 - To finish use a needle and thread to sew up the opening of each toy.
