Isn’t a plushie (soft toy) one of the first projects young sewers usually like to try? My very first sewing project, by hand, was of a small white kitten-sized cat. I think I was able to somehow attach all of the limbs and ears, etc. It was not exactly a beginner sewing project for *anyone* but by golly the home economics teacher was determined to punish me with that project. I think my Mom still has it.
Here are is free video tutorial from the very lovely StyleNovice demonstrating a much easier soft toy sewing project! A plush dinosaur with ribbon tabs along it’s back for baby to explore and grab.
Make a set of three in different sizes and fun fabric prints for baby shower gifts, or market sellers! You can get a free printable template here from Kristen Lekberg’s blog Beloved Ones.
