Sewing toys for Christmas

Putting in a plug for a book I found. If you have a few kiddos that are in the age range of say 8 and under that you need gifts for this book will be worth the $13.57 you spend at Amazon for it. It is called Toys to Sew by Claire Garland. Use scraps for much, and felt for several items. This will cut cost down a lot!!

I will list the toys. They range from beginners (not in order) to those with more advanced skill.

One basic doll with 4 variations:
Sonny Sam
Fairy Angel
Binah Ballerina
Jolly Pirate
There are several ways to do the clothes too so you can make extra if you want.

11 Stuffed animals:
Elephant
Crocodile
Turtle
Bear
Elephant
5 felt dinos (one in a felt egg)
Felt bears

4 sock animals:
tiger
monkey
dog
puppy

5 Interactive toys
Felt tea set
Felt piece hobby horse on a stick
A type of pull along like a wagon
Felt cat ball with mice bowling pins
Felt houses

The book Sock and Glove by Miyako Kanamori has some very cute animals and one doll. It is another treasure that will pay for itself, especially if you use old socks and gloves and spare buttons.

Re: Sewing toys for Christmas
