WIP Thursday - Clive the Plush Toy

I have been dreaming of making my own plush design for some time now and I think that Clive the deer is the right candidate for it. I am making the basic nude Clive to start with (how naughty!), and then sometime down the track I will introduce some special editions, but I won't give away too much about that yet - I've got to leave something as a surprise!

So this week I have come up with the first version of the pattern, cut out the fabric (don't fear - the final version will not have a flowery head), embroidered the face and pinned together the pieces. Now I just hope that Zoe gives me a few spare moments so that I can sew this baby up!

I will post my progress shots of Clive as he comes along. Nothing like a blog to stop you from procrastinating.
