Free Pattern - Fat Quarter Froggie

Requirements:

  • A fat quarter of your choice. We've used 
  • Two and a half cups of dried Black Beans. 
  • Two buttons for eyes. (You could also make eyes out of felt or fabric)
  • Fat Quarter Froggy Pattern (Download available at the end of the post)
  • Scissors
  • Sewing Machine
  • Pencil to mark the pattern if you're not using freezer paper
  • Freezer Paper (optional)

 

Steps: 


1.  Fold the fat quarter in half wrong side out so it measures approximately 18.5 X 10.5 inches.  

2.  Print off the frog pattern from this file: Fat Quarter Froggy Pattern

3.  Pin the frog pattern to the wrong side of the fabric.

**Tip:   If you're using freezer paper place the waxy side on your fabric and iron so it sticks.  This will keep your pattern from slipping.

4.  Cut on the outer line.

5.  Pin the limbs so your fabrics stay in place.

6.  Sew almost all the way around leaving a small opening.

7.  The dotted lines on your pattern signify where you need to leave the opening to fill the frog with beans. 

8.  When you are finished sewing clip the corners of the frog's outer fingers close to the seam. 

9.  Make small cuts with your scissors on the seam allowance along the curves of the frog -
which is pretty much around the whole frog!
This will give the frog a better shape when it's finished.

 
                                                                                                                         

10.  Turn right side out. I started with pushing one of the frogs legs through the opening first,
then the other leg and then the hands.

     

Since the opening is fairly small I made a small paper funnel to tuck into the opening so I could pour the beans into it. 

It took a little more than 2 cups of black beans for this project. Don't overfill or your frog won't be able to do any cool poses and won't feel as good. :)

11.  Hand stitch the opening shut.  Sew buttons on for eyes or make little felt eyes and you're done!
And now its time to play! 

Happy Froggy!
