Gertie was designed as a heat bag as she is curved to wrap around your neck and shoulders. This quick, simple pattern is easier to turn in fleece or stretchy fabrics. Great beginners project.
Designer: Pauline McArthur / Funky Friends Factory
Size: 43cm / 17inches
Suitable Fabric: It is easier to turn the pieces if you use knit (stretchy) fabrics like fleece, Cuddle, velour, chenille, minky etc. You can also use woven (non-stretchy) fabrics like quilting cottons and corduroy. The googly eyes will be easier with stretchy fabrics!
