So my daughter keeps telling me, "Mommy, (insert stuffed animal name here) needs a new (article of clothing)!"
Since I started staying home, I've tried to keep things fun for A by occasionally making outfits for her stuffed animals. These are never done with actual patterns. In fact, it's totally on the fly, usually raiding my fabric stash. I like to think of it as a very tiny version of Project Runway, because my deadline is the end of my other daughter's naptime.
Here are a few recent ones.
I've even made some bedding.
The results are quick, and A is soon off to her toybox, taking the new outfit off and trying it on another stuffed animal.
