Toy Caterpillar Tutorial (with pattern!)

I remember when I first started blogging, back in August, I had crazy "someday" dreams of being featured on the "famous" blogs.

One of those blogs was "Luvin the Mommyhood". Only the amazing people got to be featured there. :o)

Well I'm happy to report that my little dream has since come true several times, and it's coming true again today! Shannon asked me to be a guest during her "Babyhood Bonanza" event, so I'm sharing this snuggly little friend that I made:





It's an "anyone-can-make-it" stuffed caterpillar, with a fun crinkly inside, and little ribbon "legs" to drool on!

But once you've invited this little friend into your home-watch out! Because they can be a little sneaky sometimes. Especially when they're hungry....

And, being of rather a humble size, they will need you to protect them from predators!


But most of the time, all they really want are cuddly hugs and snuggles :o)

Click here to invite one into your home!
(and be sure to check out the post right before it to see Shannon's precious new little girl!)

  4. Splendid: Thanks! It actually came from the clearance rack at the Children's Place a couple of years ago :o) I think it's like an 18m, and she can still wear it!

  8. Katie: Yes, I made it! I copied one I saw at Pottery Barn :o)
    It would be difficult to do a tutorial, since I sort of free-handed everything, but I will have to see what I can come up with one of these days!

  20. Disney, I love everything you make and I second the owl pattern. He is too darn cute! One small comment, my younger DD had a "taggie" type toy with ribbon loops and she wrapped it around her finger really tightly. Sadness! When I make your cuddle bug I will sew a line down the center of the loops to prevent trapped fingers. Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful creations.
