Weasels! (a give away)


Sometimes we call Louise "Weasel."  I know, it's a goofy nickname.  But there it is.

I wanted to make a plush weasel for her birthday, and I got excited about it, so I'm way early. This is a pretty simple pattern.  I used some old blankets so they're really soft and cuddly.  (And who doesn't want to cuddle with a weasel?)

I used the last of my wool stuffing in three of the weasels, and I used polyfil with the rest.  I've decided to stop using wool, but I was disappointed a bit with the poly-fil.  It isn't as firm and doesn't hold the shape as well, although it is nice and squishy.  You can see the difference in these two weasels.  The white one's face is pointy, and his legs are firm; the brown one's face is puffier, and his lays splay out a bit.  I've ordered some cotton, and I'm eager to work with it, but I was too eager to finish these to wait for the cotton to arrive.



 The pattern is free to download here until Thursday at noon.   The give away has ended, you can now find the pattern in my shop.  Please remember to send me feedback for the pattern!
 
Also, I'm adding 6 weasels to the shop right now, and don't forget about the EARTHLINGS coupon code (40% off!)  available through Friday, April 1st.  Go watch the movie!

Love the weasels! The poor mustelids don't get enough softie love! The body form is perfect and the faces sweet. You've portrayed their slinkyness so well!
