Thought I would post a few pics of little stuffed animals I've made over the past year. They all go into a toy box until the kid is born (4.5 months and counting). Our dog always seems VERY interested in these, so we will have to be on guard for toy-chewing.
Below: raccoon sewn out of a pair of old corduroy pants. I saw something similar in Stuffed Magazine, so I attempted to copy it as best I could. This was just drawn freehand and sewn up and stuffed, then extra bits were embroidered on.
Bunny Crochet: my own design. His head is too big to really stay up on its own, however.
