I’m continuing on my pattern poll quest which means a manta ray was up next! Patterns for these are relatively plentiful on the internet already, particularly this awesome one by BeeZeeArt. So I wanted to set mine apart by making it extra chubby and adding some spots inspired by an eagle ray.
It’s even easier than the frog pattern I did last month, with only 3 pattern pieces. It has some dart sewing, curved sewing, and stitch in the ditch. I would usually rate it a 3/10, but honestly it goes so fast so I rated it a 2 instead. It would be a great way for a beginner to practice their skills and get a quick result out of it.
As always, the pattern comes with applique templates to make the eyes if you’re using a regular sewing machine or working by hand. Safety eyes would also be a great choice if you want an even faster finish. If you have an embroidery machine, there are also embroidery files available. Everything is 4×4 hoop friendly, but if you have a 5×7 hoop you can sew more of the body spots.
I hope you all like it!
