Redhead squirrel from women's shirt

From old things that do not look completely worn out, but are not used, you can make a new and beautiful thing with your own hands. For example, you can make a decoration for a house or a car, a key chain or a Christmas tree toy. Or you can make a beautiful decoration or a toy to decorate a room or to entertain a child. I had a pretty red toy squirrel from an old woman's shirt and hats on red fur:

In order to sew this little squirrel, we needed: fabric from an old female shirt, a pattern (pattern) for sewing, needle and thread, safety pins, fabric on fur of red color, and also beads and beads of brown color, reliable glue, filler (cotton wool) and small decorative ornament in the form of a red flower. Take a paper pattern:

This template should be divided into separate parts.According to their form, we will need to make fabric parts for sewing with a small (from 0.5 cm.) Indent (allowance). At first I decided to take on tailoring of the head and torso, and for this I took a simple synthetic fabric of cherry color :

In order not to sew two parts of a little squirrel's ears into one, insert an additional piece of fabric cut out according to their shape, then sew it: Red squirrel from a woman's shirt
There was no whole fabric to make up the tail, and I have to collect it from six small pieces. The paper sample of the tail will need to be divided into three separate parts (according to the length of the pieces of fabric):

From the fur fabric of red color I cut out three pairs (six in total) of details for tailing:

Now I decided to make the body parts of satin fabric, of which the collar of an old shirt consisted. This fabric is brighter,smoother and will look more beautiful:

In the same way as in the first version of tailoring, I make here an internal detail for the ears:

Next, we sew one of the two tail pieces, made of six separate ones. Then we will sew two torso parts on their seamy side of the fabric, thus:

We turn out the body of crafts from the inside and fill it with cotton, then sew the tail details and fill them with cotton. It is enough to take a narrow and a rectangular (8 to 10 cm) piece of cloth. This piece should be rolled up and a seam made on it, after which it should be sewn around the edges, forming a circle. The resulting "circle" must be put on the neck of the crafts and hem it to her. You need to sew it in such a way that the seamed area would be at the back or front, but not at the side:

Then I pick up beads that would be useful as an eye and a nose for crafts.I chose a large brown bead as the nose and two large rhombic beads - as the eyes. To make brushes for the ears, you need to cut in pairs four round parts and two small rectangular of red fabric with fur. Four round parts need to be glued in pairs. Sew tail:

To attach the tassels of the ears is enough reliable glue, and cut off the tips of the ears must be removed inside. We glue the tips around the circle with rectangular details and glue the circles inside them, then sew the eyes and nose:

If you wish, you can additionally decorate the crafts with some decorative element in front.
