I originally designed these plush Olympic accessories as part of an Olympic-themed party over for Bird's Party Magazine. You can see the full spread HERE.
- Fleece scraps in red, orange and yellow
- Scrap polyester batting
- Gold pleather fabric
- 1 1/2 inch wide red grosgrain ribbon
- Sewing Notions (shears/rotary cutter, tape measure pins, thread & sewing machine, hand sewing needle)
For the torch flame, start out by cutting out three leaf-shaped pieces as shown below, the yellow being about 3 inches high x 1 inch wide, the orange being about 4 1/4 inches high x 2 inches wide and the red being 6 inches high by 3 inches wide. Sew the layers together to get three layered flames:
With right sides facing, sew all three flames together, leaving a small opening at the bottom. Clip the curved edges and turn right side out. Stuff with fiberfill.(aka two equal sides) triangle from the gold pleather. Mine was 15 inches long and 4 inches wide at the base. With the right sides facing, sew together lengthwise and then turn right side out and stuff with fiberfill.
Ready to go for the gold? To make a medal cut two lipped circles about 4 1/2 inches in diameter and a single matching out of batting. Cut a length of grosgrain ribbon (personal preference of amount, I did 28 inches) and overlap raw ends. Sandwich batting on bottom, a gold piece right side up, ends of ribbon and then remaining gold piece (gold side face down). Coil up ribbon in middle and pin outer edges of fabrics.
