I've had this tutorial bookmarked forever: http://www.allfreecrafts.com/sewing/platypus.shtml

So I finally made a bunch!


They're about 12" long, filled with toy stuffing and dried beans for some weight. They're all made with fleece, except the pink one, it's terry cloth. Their bills/feet are all just cotton, and their eyes are tiny black beads.


This is the first one I made, and after seeing it's cuteness and how easy it was to make I decided I needed to make more!









Thanks for looking!
