Stuffed Toy Snake from Ikea Fleece Blanket

Dear readers, this blog will no longer be updated.

Please update your link, and we hope to see you again soon 😊

The process was really simple:
  1. mark two identical shapes of a snake on it with a 2B pencil, cut around them with 1-cm space allowance. 
  2. Stack the 2 shapes together, place a red ribbon of 4" length on where the mouth is (as the tongue) and stitch along the marked line, leaving about 4" of opening. 
  3. Fill it up with the old pillow stuffing, bit by bit. Then stitch up the opening. 
  4. As for the patterns on the snake, they were some lace trimming from my craft box.
  5. The eyes were buttons from my sister's dress (buttons that she hated and removed so I saved them).
  6. The red ribbon was saved from some old present we received.

That was my mink boa for the evening, and good for sofa decoration for the year.

Note: The remaining Ikea blanket has been made into a wine bottle bag :)
