First off I just want to thank my six-year-old for the names Luke and Lily. These ducks were very nearly Lester and Lucy, but Stella informed me in no uncertain terms that these were not a suitable names for ducks and Luke and Lily were way cuter. Agreed. Always consult with 1st graders when naming your stuffed animals.
Luke's got a dapper blue necktie and Lily looks so chic with her big pink bow. Attach a pinback to the bow and you can reposition it as you'd like (it even makes a nice bowtie if you'd like two drakes).
This pattern is full of step-by-step photos because making a plush duck should be fun, not frustrating, you know? I used minky for this pair, but you could also use fleece for soft, huggable ducks.
