Rastus Rooster

Posted on 29 January 2010

I sewed this rooster for my baby nephew as a Christmas gift. The pattern was created by Web Stitch Needlecraft designs.

I had to make a few changes to make it more baby proof as they are not actually intended as a toy. I left out the wire that is supposed to be in the top feathers, used some fabric scrap in the body rather than the recommended plastic pellets, and I hand sewed a fabric beak instead of painting it on with acrylic.

This was quite a fun project to do. I would recommend this only to people confidant in their sewing ability as some of the instructions are complex to follow.

It was hard to tell if my nephew liked his present or not, as he was much more interested in the box that it came it! Typical ๐Ÿ™‚
