Plush Peanut Pals


The minute I saw the pattern for this plush peanut, I knew I had to make it.  HAD to.  A big zip up peanut shell with two peanuts inside.  It was just so darn cute and clever, I wish I'd thought of it!


It came from this adorable vintage plush fruit & veggie pattern set by Vogue (#1566).  It's over 30 yrs old, but the styles are timeless.  Check out all the garden goodies and their sweet faces:


They're all super cute, but the peanut set just jumped out at me.  The pattern is so old that fleece wasn't even a fabric option listed!  I knew it would be the best choice so it would be cuddly for the kids and easy to work with too.  Quilting two layers together gives it just the right thickness and shell "texture":


The peanuts inside are removable and I used fleece scraps & buttons to make their faces instead of trying to use the ancient transfers in the pattern. I think I like the way they turned out better anyway:


How could a kid resist this face peeking out?


As you can see, it was a hit:


Who wouldn't want a few peanut pals to hang out with:


Now if only I could find some time to make the whole garden my kids would be in 7th heaven!
