I made this for the son of my old history teacher, with some fabric leftovers, and dacron form an old pillow... I hope, that at least the pictures are self explaining (my english is rustier than I tought)...

You need:
Scrapes of cotton fabric, some dacron(the stuffing thing), some left over ribbon, a little bell, fabric paint, some yarn, a small piece of cardboard.

Cut a rectangle 30 cm long 6 cm wide.

Roll some yarn in a 3 cm wide piece carboard to get 6 cm long strips.

Distribute the yarn strips to make the hair on one of the ends of your rectangle, fold in half and machine sew (the hair should be sewn on whats gonna be the inside of the spaghetti friend)

Then the inside out, stuff,

sew the other end, make a bow, sew the bell,

paint a face,

and voila, an spaghetti friend


The name is tacky, but those make great gifts for babys, my brother had one as a baby and he loved it so much my mom made one for each of his little baby friends cuz they were fighting over it (one year old fighting over a toy, mmmm)

those are great!  i've been wanting to make my baby some toys, since there's so much toxic plastic out there posing as baby toys Tongue
i'm thinking of knitting or sewing felt into a fun shape and hiding a little bean-filled gumball-machine-toy-capsule inside for a rattle.  now i think i'll add yarn hair and bells-thanks for the idea!

Those are sooo cute! I have to make one for my baby. Although i might leave off the bell. I'm very paranoid about choking hazards. I don't  even want her  to play with stuffed animals with plastic or glass eyes unless they are super tiny.

Cute!

I've made a similar thing as a fairy wand for my 16-month-old. Where you used yarn for hair, I stitched in some pretty ribbons (just not too long so as not to pose a stragulation hazard). She loves it. I stuffed it really firmly so it's got enough weight to hold it's shape as a wand. She also likes to chew on it when she's teething.

I don't have any babies in my life, but I think stuffed with a bit of catnip - They could easily become the toy of choice for my cats.  Cheesy

Cute cute cute! Thanks for the tutorial!  Grin

That is sweet! As I have no baby or cat, I must be tragic and make one for myself, since I cannot resist.
