Make a Textile Toy Snail

For this swap you will make one Snail Toy for your assigned partner using the pattern that I have provided. See the Hyper-Link for pattern, instructions, and videos below.

There are plenty of step-by-step pictures for this project. You can also obtain different ideals and plenty of inspiration from Pinterest. You will need to use colorful and small printed scale fabrics for this project. I recommend using 100% cotton; however, you may if desired also use either wool or acrylic felt for the base of the snail's body. Embellish as much as you desire. Note: You may enlarge the pattern if you desire if you feel it's too small. I enlarged my pattern to 150 percent.
