Special thanks to Seams Sew Lo for putting together this tour. Her Best Homemade Toys Roundup post was just the kick in the pants I needed to knock out my sewn toy project. Be sure to read through to the end, as our sponsors, Seamingly Smitten and Phat Quarters have a giveaway!

Confession time! December is the one month out of the year that I will consistently make projects that I HATE. You know me. I love fast women's clothing projects to add to my ever expanding wardrobe. I'll tolerate a few kids projects here and there. But I don't do stuffies.

Unless, my kids look up at me with their big brown eyes, bat their lashes and say, "Mama, I want a Slime Rancher Plushie for Christmas." That is seriously my Kryptonite!

For those NOT in the know, these are Slime Rancher Tabbies. Cute little buggers aren't they?

Now, I did consider just buying the plushies. No one would even have to know. But after I searched etsy, I saw they were $45 for a 5" plush! WAH. And those were the cheap ones. 😭 I can't pay $45 for a 5" plush. I get it. I'm not saying they're over priced. I'm a seamstress after all. I know the work that goes into making plushies. But I think I can handle a few hours of work to save some money, especially considering materials is like $5 each.

The best thing ever, was when I found this FREE Kitty Plush Pattern from Choly Knight. The "Tabby" Slime is identical to this plushie. All I had to do was eliminate the feet (and that makes for 1 less step!). Now of course her cats are WAY cuter than mine. But I admit that I'm doing my best here. Stuffies aren't my thing.

So I present to you, my "Tabby Slimes". They aren't perfect. But they are cute. And yes, I realize 1 is missing. Its a work in progress. What can I say, I took on too much work for Christmas, AGAIN.

  1. I think your kitties look great! I would never spend $45 for a small stuffed animal either. I always take on too much at Christmas as well, but somehow I finish even if it is at the last minute!

  2. Free patterns are the best DIY Christmas present don't you think?
