nothing hard, but my 2.5 year old LOVES max and ruby, and there just aren't a lot of m&r toys out there. plus, she's a toddler and rather fickle, so she may be over it next week, no sense buying some pricey toy!

just printed these images out from colorized coloring book pages, sewed, stuffed. attached a ricrac loop so they could be hooked together with a carabiner (made these for our flight to FL this week)!

the printing on fabric thing was so easy, i'm totally making some other little things like this!

What an awesome idea!! My toddler loves "Max & Ruby," too. I may have to copy this!

Might be "nothing hard" but it looks like toddler gold to me!! Grin

excellent!! i bet she loves them! I used to love watching that with the kids Smiley

I tried printing on fabric once but didn't have such good results. The kind of inkjet fabric i used said to rinse for a certain amount of time but after that the colors were faded looking Sad did you use inkjet fabric? Any tips? I had ideas but dropped them because of the poor results! thanks

That is golden!  My 3 yo son is obsessed with Max and Ruby. 

Those are adorable!  I really like the rickrack because they stay together for travel!

Great inspiration!

thanks everyone!! i actually didn't use any special fabric, just some cheap-o white cotton quilting fabric i had laying around. i ironed it onto some freezer paper (i also had in the craft closet, so it was really a free project!) to put it through the printer, and it worked out beautifully! i'd love to see what other people come up with Cheesy

i would LOVE to do something like this.  Would you be interested in giving more explicit instructions, like a tute?  The whole freezer paper thing has my mind spinning!! Huh

i could probably do a tute, if people wanted. i'm out of town right now, but could try to work something up by the weekend?

I love this! What a great idea!
Just this morning I was thinking I need to make my son "Buckle," the cat from Richard Scarry's books, because he loves those books so much. I was thinking of needle-felting a little cat, but this would be WAY easier and much more recognizable!
