While my cousin was pregnant last year, I had tiny tots on my mind and got in quite a frenzy of designing sets of stuffed toys for the littlest hands. I'm calling them Little Softies.
These charming animals are simple to make from your favorite fabric scraps (see Zoo and Dog Family for colorful versions), bits of polyfil or wool stuffing, with some simple embroidery adding appealing features. Totally baby safe and hand-washable, they will be loved by toddlers and young children too, who will enjoy taking them out and putting them back into their soft fabric box/basket, practicing animal sounds and play-acting stories. Very stimulating--encourages the imagination!
Alternately they could be hand sewn from felt - a fun project for kids or adults!
This is the Farm Set: Donkey, Goat, Lamb, Goose, Pig and Piglet. You can choose to make only a few of them, or make them all, and make multiples for even more fun! They are really sweet in pairs.
Donkey is about 4.5" tall x 7" long, Piglet is about 2.5" tall x 4" long. Box/basket is 2.5" tall and about 7" across.
Nine pages of easy to follow patterns, instructions and diagrams for all animals as well as the box/basket will be emailed to you.
