When Luke and Steph were here for the holidays, Steph made a wrap with a hood for her new nephew. I was feeling the creative vibe and used some of her scrap fabric to make him a stuffed car for him to squeeze and squish and drool and dribble all over. It turned out okay.
I wanted it to look a little more like a car and less like a duck head…with teeth. The buttons were probably the culprit for that. They look too much like (duck?) eyes.
The fabric was really hard to work with. It was a soft, terry-type material that stretched one way. That’s probably why it came out long and squat.
It’s lightly stuffed with synthetic stuffing from a pillow.
I think it turned out okay. Next time I’ll use different fabric. And get some more interesting buttons. Darryl doesn’t need a button on his old work pants anyway though, right?
