Hefty Hippo Soft Toy Video Tutorial ADD-ON

(2 customer reviews)


An adorably quirky hippo with realistic flare.


Do you prefer a little more visual assistance when sewing something new? I am pleased to announce the creation of my very first video sew along! While this is a comprehensive video tutorial, it is intended to be supplemental to the standard Sewing Pattern and Tutorial.

You will need to purchase the Hefty Hippo Sewing Pattern and Tutorial to accompany this video. Upon purchase of this video tutorial, you will receive a PDF which has the link to the video. The video is housed on my YouTube Channel, but is unlisted and therefore the link is required to access it.

"I found it a lovely easy pattern as always and a big thank you Rena Dearden for the instructions on the nostrils, I have always wanted to know how to make nostrils but thought it would be really hard but the instructions were so easy!"

"I absolutely love these patterns! I love that most of them are very similar in construction and very well written. This pattern was no different! Great step by step instructions with many variations giving you options for any sewing level."

"This hippo has stolen my heart! I think he turned out great! The options in this pattern makes the Sewists look fancy. Neck roll, toenails, nostrils and tummy details really look great but are very easy to do. Thanks for another cute pattern!"

    If you are a visual learner, you will love this add on! While the pattern has the full color photos for each step and is great on its own. However, if you haven’t made a stuffie or just like to see all angles, this video walks you through making the entire hippo, showing all angles and more explanation than just the pattern.

    This was a fun pattern to work on. The directions were easy to follow and the photos were a great help to see if you’re on track. The video is helpful whenever you need it. The options are great for a beginner sewer or an experienced sewer. You choose your own option. Have fun with this one.
