Today’s DIY project – turning Max’s too small onesie in to a memory bear!
I am by no means a professional/experienced sewer! I tried to find a Pinterest tutorial and after skimming through atleast 30 different pages, I decided it couldn’t be THAT hard and I’d just go for it and make it up as I went!
I started by cutting off the zip, removing the arms and then the legs. I made the arms and legs thinner and stitched them back together inside out before stuffing with an old cushion inner and stitching the top shut.Next I cut the top third of the body section off for the head. The remaining two-thirds was then cut in half leaving me with a separated front and back. I stitched down the left side first with the arm put in, followed by the two legs and bottom then the right side and arm. I stitched across the shoulders and stuffed the body.
The ears were made from some extra left over material I had from a previous project and have no stuffing.
The head was cut to make it two separate pieces for the front and back. I sewed this together with the ears from the inside-out. Lastly, I stuffed the head and sewed it on!
Have you made a keepsake memory bunny or bear?
