Sewing Away

Archive for the ‘diy toys’ Category

My husband really wanted to have a space themed mobile for our coming baby’s (less then 2 weeks- so exciting) crib. So we made one. 🙂 He actually did at least the half of the project, drew, cut, sewed, balanced. We love the result and hope that our son will love it too.

It has stars, spaceships and planets, oh and even an astronaut and a moon.

Do you like my little platypus? I filled it with rice, so it has a nice weight to it.

Here is the free pattern and tutorial by IntoCraft.

I made this cute squirrel toy. Its belly and forehead is made of a different patterned fabric, but the basic body is plain brown-gray. The nose and eyes are just sewn. I stuffed it scrapfabric and for my hubby’s suggestion I made a little heart and put it in. Who knows? Probably once we have to operate it. 🙂

The credit for the pattern and the instructions goes to Matsutake. See them here!
