dino plushie. for babies!

I made this little guy using the leftover fleece I bought for milo’s halloween costume.
And I have so much ribbon laying around from my card-making days.

After I was done I wanted to make a ton more! Its was really easy and super fun. And sewing with that microfleece is like butt-a! I have a little more left, so I’m going to figure out something else to make with it. This might just be my g0-to baby gift for the future…

I found the tutorial and pattern here.   The only thing I would do different next time is make the ribbon a little shorter. She suggests 6 inches; i made mine 5 and they were still a little long when i folded them over… But otherwise I think it turned out really cute!

Sorry for the delay in posting! I was in china last week – but heres something I made before I left…

I made this stuffed bear using this pattern I bought on etsy. I made it to give to a friend at her baby shower. I used old sweaters for the fabric. I was reluctant to give it because its far from perfect, (ummmm….lopsided ears!)  but hoping that she will think its the thought that counts.
