DIY Plush Cloud

Happy Friday!

This week I decided to try making the ever popular CLOUD! My inspiration for this sewing project was this happy face knit cloud plush. I’ve been wanting to try working with linen fabric & thought this would be the perfect/simple project. Harper & I went over to Joann Fabrics earlier in the week & the linen that I wanted was on sale. YAY! I believe I paid about $8 for 1 yard. I never realized how expensive linen is! The good news is that I have a ton left over because you really don’t need a lot of fabric for a cloud.

Overall the project was pretty easy. I hand drew a pattern, pinned it to the fabric, cut it out, embroidered the eyes & smile, sewed, stuffed, sewed some more, and then used fabric paint to make the rosy cheeks.

What I learned about making a cloud is that you don’t want your “cloud humps” to be so exaggerated. I feel like my cloud looks more like a 4 hump camel! So, next time I will try drawing a much softer (less “hump-y”) looking cloud pattern!
