Design Your Own Stuffed Animals: Have you sewn stuffed animals, or "softies", from patterns, but always wanted to create your own designs? In this class you will start with a sketch and transform it into a sewing pattern for a stuffed animal. You'll learn how and where to add gussets and darts to make your design truly three-dimensional. Don't let faux fur or stretchy fleece scare you!  Don't shy away from a softie with long skinny arms, or curvy antlers! Learn all the tricks of the trade and come away with an original sewing pattern that you can make and sell. Abby Glassenberg is the author of The Artful Bird: Feathered Friends to Make and Sew and a new book about soft toy design to be published by Lark Crafts next spring. She is also a licensed toy pattern designer for Simplicity.
