toadstool tutorial

by Heleen
You need:
- piece of polkadot fabric

- embroidery band
- embroidery floss
- some stuffing
- button
- ribbon for the loop

step 1. Cut a piece of embroidery band, 6 inch length.
fold it double and embroider a nice little scenery on one half.
note: the bottem of the scenery is on the fold line.
Step 2. take two pieces of red and white polkadot fabric
and put right side on right side.
pinn the hood (roof) pattern on and cut out with seam allowance.
Make a tiny cut in the seam allowance at the top to mark the opening for the loop.
 And two tiny cuts at the bottem to mark the opening for the embroidery band.
0.1 inch (2 mm.)
Step 3. pinn the embroidery band between the cut marks on the hood fabric,
see picture.
Sew the hood on both ends of the embroidered band.
Fold the seam allowance towards the embroidery band and press.
Fold a ribbon into a loop and pinn the loop on the top mark of the hood,
see picture.
Fold precisely the two parts of the hoods right side on right side.
Sew the hood. Beware not to sew on the embroidery band.
make a few tiny cuts in the seam allowances around the curves.
note: beware not to cut the stitching line.
Turn the toadstool and fold the seam allowances
of both the embroidery band and the hood towards the hood.
Step 4. Close both sides of the band leaving a small opening for filling.

Step 5. Fill the toadstool softly and close the opening.
And tata...your toadstool is ready!

have fun!
