Pant~A~Loooons, a Review

Disclaimer:  The opinions expressed in this post are my own. However, I was given a copy of the pattern in exchange for this review.


I recently found out that Chrissy from Muse of the Morning (https://www.facebook.com/MuseoftheMorning) was planning a blog tour.  Meaning that a group of bloggers would each blog about one of her patterns over a certain period of time. Needless to say, I was very excited when she agreed that I could be included in her blog tour. :)
This is my very first pattern review, so I'm going to keep it short and sweet. 

 
I got to make the Pant~A~LoOoOns Soft Toy and I love it!  Such a sweet and simple stuffed "animal" with loads of design possibilities. This was very easy to stitch up and Chrissy explains all of the steps quite nicely. There is even a tutorial for the embroidery stitches used to create the face.
 

I admit that my hand embroidery could use a lot more practice, but I love that there are no buttons!
Wouldn't this be a great baby present with a rattle tucked inside and baby's initial on one of the "feet?"

As you can see, I made a rather lopsided two-faced version.  That's right, I couldn't decide which one to make, so I pulled two fabrics and added a quirky ruffle for hair.  I know two little girls that will love their very own Pant~A~LoOoOn!
