Hungry Hippo

Wow! I can't believe how fast time flies! Seems like I just posted on here yesterday and a month has gone by already!  SO I must be busy right? ha ha ha... 

I have been wanting to share with you a hippopotamus that I made using a pattern from Carols Zoo ( 

I was surprised how easy it was to sew together. Took me about 4 hours to make this cute fella. That includes all the breaks and distractions, it would be so much less if I sewed this straight though.  Don't you just love how the ears came out?? I did have to give it plushie surgery right away because I put the tail in the wrong place to begin with. Not very common to see a tail coming out on top of a hippos back! Don't you just hate it when you do something like that? Needless to say, my older daughter came and snatched her up right away. I still have a few of Carol's animal patterns to sew up. I'll post them hear as I complete them. So until next time, have a sew wonderful day!!
