Detailed step by step instructions for the plush campfire adventure kit cut and sew by Sheenarae on Spoonflower.com.
There are plenty of guides out there to make your own plush campfire and each are very sweet. It’s been on my list of things to do for a good long while but sourcing all the different materials or colours kept putting me off. By creating this cut and sew on Spoonflower.com I eliminated that step. Just one source, one meter, with all the colours and visual textures needed to create a dynamic and soft play campfire.
How to Order
The ordering process is very simple but there are a few things to note about this particular cut and sew project.
The size is based on a full yard or meter. To order the entire set It will fit on fleece (which is what the pictures are on), lightweight cotton twill, and cotton linen canvas. If you are looking to spend a bit less you can down size and order it on the petal signature cotton but the rocks will not be included. When it is printed out sometimes some additional material will be printed making it appear cut off, rest assured this is excess and not required for the set. I chose to set it up this way so the smaller fabric sizes would still be an option but it can be a little confusing.
See in my picture below the print on a full meter of fleece.
How to assemble the Campfire Adventure kit
- Cut out all pieces matching them up as you go.
- Place matching pieces right sides together
- Sew with a 1 cm seam allowance starting at the bottom of the fire all the way around leaving about a 1.5 inch opening.
- Trim the excess material from the tips of the fire and cut small V’s into the excess fabric where it curves sharply.
- If using a fabric that frays it is a good idea to finish the seam with a zigzag stitch.
- Using the opening in the bottom fold the fabric right side out.
- Close up the opening by hand stitching it closed.
- Cut out all pieces. There are 2 ends and 1 bark piece for each log. They are all the same size and can be matched up any way.
- Fold the bark in folding one long edge over to the other with the right sides together.
- Sew along the long edge with a 1cm seam allowance leaving a small open area about a 1.5 inch space near the center.
- Pin the log ends to either end and sew with a 1cm seam allowance.
- Fold right side out and stuff.
- Hand stitch up the opening to close it up.
Mushrooms and Stones
- Follow Fire directions steps 1-9.
All the pieces are measured out with a 1cm seam allowance. There is no white around the pieces where the seam allowance is so it looks more seamless once sewn together. When sewing the mushrooms following that 1cm allowance is most important for everything to fall into the right spaces.
Setting up your Plush Camp Fire
Now for the fun part!
I gave this set to my kids for christmas and it was a hit! We carefully set it up and quickly destroyed it, over and over. Set a ring of stones around a pile of logs, place the flames on top, and enjoy. I found it works nicely set up with two or three of the flames.
Getting pictures of it set up was a dificult task but fun.
