See me sew Randy Rhino – photo tutorial

Posted under A day in my lifeBlogToy-making TIPS & TUTORIALS on 2016-08-21 11:58:45

My Randy Rhino toy sewing pattern is one of my older patterns BUT he’s still as popular as ever so I have updated the pattern with a brand new photo tutorial. 🙂

He can be made from most types of fabrics and looks really cuddly in fleece!
