Welcome to the Bonbon Pets headquarters!
If you don’t have the pattern, grab a copy of it here. Then come back and let’s sew!
Q: Do you allow the sale of Bonbon Pets made from your pattern?
A: Yes, under certain circumstances.
• By purchasing this pattern, you are free to make items from the pattern and sell them in your small-scale shop, such as an Etsy shop, or for a local fundraising event. No production license is needed.
• No mass production please.
• If you ever have someone manufacture for you, you will need to create your own pattern.
Q: Do you have a video showing how to make Bonbon Pets?
A: Not exactly, but I do have one showing how to make a stuffed cactus pillow, which uses almost all of the same techniques. Click the play button below and enjoy. Or you can watch it on my channel.
FELT: You can use lots of different things for your pets’ facial details, but my favorite is simple craft felt. It’s inexpensive, comes in loads of colors, and doesn’t fray. A package like this will set you up. I like this option too, with lots of 6″ squares. (Hint: a 6″ square will fit even the largest facial detail on the Bonbon Pets!)
FLOSS: For embroidered details, cotton floss is perfect! It’s readily available at your local craft store, where 10m skeins are usually about 50 cents. But if that’s not a convenient option for you, I like this package of some basic neutral colors.
MARKING TOOLS: There are so many options for tools you can use to transfer markings from your pattern to your fabric; it might take some experimenting to find your favorite. A Dritz Air Erasable marker is a popular choice, or tailor’s chalk. I also like Frixion pens, which can be used as regular pens as well.
