Toy Animals

A sewing craft that I've learned to make that is simple enough for children to do, is a little stuffed animal.
First draw the shape on some cardboard.
Trace the shape onto two pieces of material. Sew buttons on for nose and eyes. Sew a little mouth. If you want to embroider a name, you can.Then sew it together using whipstitch. Leave some space to put the stuffing in then sew closed. If you put a bit of crinkly paper in, it gives it some sound when you press it.
These are easy baby presents to make. I used an old denim skirt for the front of these two, so a good way to use up scrap material!
