While trying to figure out what custom item I could make for my yet-to-arrive-nephew, I struggled with feeling creative enough to make something that would be cute enough for his nursery. My sister-in-law has created the most adorable nursery in different shades of blues and greens and browns. It is modern, streamlined but oh so cozy. I love it! Now could I produce something that would fit that decor? I did not think so.
However, when my family and I were helping with some of the renovations in their house, my sister-in-law wanted me to make a bed skirt for the crib. That I could do! But I loved the fabric so much and the accents of jungle animals that I became inspired to make handmade stuffed animals. I wanted my new little nephew to have something made special just for him!
I went online to sort through ideas and and to grab some extra inspiration and I fell in love with a few animals and then was able to create my own style from the bigillion that I saw. After a day of drawing, cutting, sewing and stitching I had one monkey, one giraffe and two owls for my nephew's room! Tell me what you think!
Homemade Stuffed Animals
Can you imagine the hours of imagination and play going on in that little boy's room? Oh to be a fly on the wall!
Go squeeze a favorite stuffed animal and have an awesome day!
