DIY White Rat Plush

As an asian, I do celebrate Chinese New Year. It’s a big family gathering like people do on Thanksgiving day. The most awaited moment is when married couples give me hóngbāo or red envelope. It’s not an ordinary envelope because it is filled with money HEHE.  phew . . one of the perks being single, am I right? :p

2020 is the year of rat and even though I do not believe in any Chinese zodiac and its superstition, it’s always fun to make something each year related to the assigned animal. So, today I have something very special to share with you, which is a white rat plush. It’s super adorable and fun sewing project to do. 

I got some comments from my previous sewing projects. They said that it’s too difficult for a newbie to learn this kind of sewing project. So, to make you clear, I share this tutorial for you who are familiar with basic sewing skill and encourage you to join me to create something different and adorable. So, I am sorry if it’s not meant for a newbie but if you are a newbie and have a great interest at this, join me to make it!

Without further do, let’s make it together!
