Rat Stuffy!

This summer, I babysat two little girls who had pet rats… needless to say, rats where a very popular crafting theme. So I figured why not make our won little rats with fabric!? Wanna make one? Just follow the simple pattern I created!

thread & needle,  crafting cotton
(ears & tail), corduroy, 2 buttons,
* Use corduroy for the body and thin crafting cotton for the nose, ears & tail.
With right sides together sew the edge of the tail & ears, leaving a space
to insert the stuffing.  For the nose, take a little ball of stuffing and place
it in the middle of the circle. Gather all the edges together and sew shut
(kinda like a candy wrapper!) Sew the ears to the body and attach the button
eyes. With right sides together sew the edges of the body & don’t forget to
insert the tail and nose! Leave a a opening for the stuffing and sew
close when your rat is all nice and fluffy!
make sure to add the batting little by little to avoid clumps!
