Well so much for last week! So many thunder storms in Groningen last week that my computer blew up! But all is better now and to start this week off I have my first tutorial for you!
Last week it was my boyfriends brothers birthday. Boys can be so difficult to buy presents for, especially teenage boys so I sat and brainstormed for a good while before I came up with the idea to make him a plushie set of weights. He is very much into his fitness so it was a perfect idea.
Here is a picture of the finished plushie.
I only made 1 and that one was made in a bit of a rush as I only had 1 day to do it in and had to fit it in around work. Looking back I thought it would have been even more cool if I had stitched into the side of the weights “2.5 Kg” but oh well. You can take the weights on and off and mix and match which is a nice touch.
I was so pleased with this plushie that I thought I would make it a tutorial and post it here. When I made mine I didn’t use a pattern (was in such a rush!) but I have drawn one up for you. You can download the tutorial here (free for personal use only). I hope you enjoy this plushie too.
