Make Your Own Snail Feltie Or Pin Cushion
There is just something so whimsical about garden snails, don’t you think? I absolutely do not enjoy them in my garden but something makes me want to take them in the house, keep them as pets, and paint their shells all different colors and patterns.
My plush snail toy sewing pattern makes it possible to create gorgeous “pet” snails with vibrantly colored and patterned shells. These snails are cute enough to keep as a decoration or children’s toy, but also make the perfect pin cushion! You could give these as gifts to the sewers in your circle.

Or Maybe you fancy a slug instead?
I whipped up my last couple of snail plush felties in a matter of a mere hour or two. My kiddos LOVED them! I knew within minutes that I would not be able to keep these to my self for long.
“oooh Mom! What are you making?? It’s soooo cute! Can I have it??”
And I’m a sucker for a cute face with a chocolate milk mustache so of course I handed them all over. I managed to keep ONE for myself in which I promptly put up on a shelf with some books and knick knacks. It looks fantastic as a decoration!
I imagine that these would make a fantastic door stop if you took the time to enlarge the pattern and then g ahead and fill it with sand!
