I fell in love with Igor the Iguana when I saw him on Pauline's stand at the Brisbane Craft and Quilt Fair so I knew that I had to make one of my very own. I also knew that I wanted to use one of the Ocean Ponies prints from Tula Pink's Salt Water range. The texture is just perfect for a lizard don't you think? I used the coral colour-way as I couldn't find a contrast fabric that matched the aqua or seaweed as well as I would like.
Without further ado I'd like to introduce Igorina Iguana! Igorina loves to sit and soak up our beautiful Queensland sun.
At 52cm long I think the iguana must be one of the biggest Funky Friends (except the snake of course). She is very firmly stuffed with polyester toyfill and weighs approximately 260g, making her quite a handful to carry. I think that once she has finished her tenure as the Voodoo Rabbit showroom sample she will be coming home with me :)
Igorina can be sewn up in an afternoon without too much trouble. I would rate her at a basic difficulty level, there is nothing too fiddly or tricky to deal with and there are minimal pieces to sew together.
To recreate my Igorina you will need the following:
