Picture of Make personalized, cute, stuffed toy.
This is an instructable  to make a really simple stuffed toy for babies or infants that is basically you! My girlfriend actually designed and made this and I was very much just her man servant...again. Her idea, just on my instructable page.
The inspiration for this was the fact that we are Godparents to a fantastic little boy who lives with his parents in Berlin. We do not. Now he can drool and puke on us as if we were there!

You will need:
2/ A4 Cotton cloth for an Inkjet printer (or iron on transfer)
2/ A4 size soft'n'cuddly material for the back
Rota trimmer or scissor
Needle and thread
Access to Photoshop/Gimp or similar image manipulation sofware
Inkjet printer

Step 2: Cut, stuff and sew.

Pretty straight forward...
Cut out your image and the backing material to the same size.
We used pins to hold the 2 pieces together while cutting. (sorry, no photos)
Turn inside out.
Sew up the sides, leaving a smallish hole for the stuffing.
Turn right side out.
Sew up hole.


Step 3: Give to child

We sent off the toys to Germany and here is little JJ with his new bed time pals!
(Ok, just another excuse to go awwwww....)

Note: If I could, I would print in A3 to give the extra room to cut around the bodies better and give a human shape to the toys.
The crafty people would add arms and legs separately!
