The bigger toy cat is a soft pillow cat. It is made out of recycled baby coat and it is stuffed with recycled stuffing used from an old toy that had to be thrown away.

The larger handmade toy cat holds a heart in its hands. This heart is made out of upcycled baby sweater crocheted over with recycled yarn.

We’ve called this toy a funny bunny. It’s a hare made out of cotton wool and decoupaged with a napkin. These handmade Christmas gift toys look funny and vintage. In Russia our grandmothers used to make such toys for Christmas tree decorations. These can make great handmade Christmas gifts for kids and even for adults.

 

 

Soft baby toy making: Hello Kitty


handmade hello kittyAs many other girls, my older daughter is in love with Hello Kitty.

Here is our handmade soft toy Hello Kitty. We had a soft coat of our baby girl. She grew out of it. So, we made this toy together with my older daughter. We did not use any patterns for it. I drew a sort of pattern for this soft toy on a sheet of paper. Cut it out and placed on the fabric. It took us about 1 hour to make this soft Hello Kitty toy.
