As most of you probably already know, my new favorite thing to make is plushies!  It's so fun to come up with an idea in my head and create a little character all by myself.  At this point my skills are very limited.  I have a lot to learn.  So, I was searching on the internet for some fun patterns to follow to learn some new sewing techniques for my plushie designs.  That's when I came across this book.

I am so excited to start working on projects from this book.  It has so many different styles of plushies!  Specifically it has the blanket stitch pattern that I have been trying to figure out for the past week.  YAY!!!  I'll be working on these projects between my personal projects and trying to incorporate my new skills into my own designs.  I'm sure I will learn a lot from this book.  I have a couple of personal projects that I'm working on for my long holiday weekend but I might have to at least start working on one of these little cuties.  I can't wait!!!

Do you have any special plans for the long weekend?
