Murphy & Mabel Moose Sewing Pattern
Since I live in northern Minnesota, it was probably inevitable that I would someday make a moose. But when I did, I knew it had to be a fun moose with personality! First came Murphy! But I couldn't leave Murphy lonely, so soon Mabel came to be his loving companion. Then along came Argyle! (Actually, Argyle is made with the same pattern as Murphy & Mabel, but was made with a crazy, colorful fleecy print.) I used some great re-purposed wool suit jackets to make the moose couple pictured, a re-purposed fleecy top to make Argyle, and new quilting cotton to make the sporty vested moose. Varying the fabrics gives them a look all their own! They are about 16 inches tall when completed.

I've been sewing and crafting since I was a little girl growing up on a small farm in the woods of northern Minnesota, USA. In recent years I have focused on creating whimsical patterns that are inspired by my love of nature.
