Sew Softies™ Sea CreaturesSpring 2015 Toys
Sew Softies Sea Creatures is a cute craft kit appropriate for sewing beginners. Kids can create three felt creatures: a crab, a fish, and an octopus. Each ball-shaped animal has large (plastic, easy-sew) eyes and comes together from two curved strips of felt. Stitching holes are pre-punched to keep stitches even. After the hand-sewing is almost finished, the creatures are stuffed with lightweight polyester fiber, resulting in a squishy, fluffy friend. The production time is long enough to let children feel like they have accomplished a real project, but short enough that they are unlikely to abandon it halfway, and the results are adorable, perfect for display on a shelf or a spontaneous gift for a friend. Even better, this is a good kit to share with friends: they can each choose a favorite and sew them up together, then play with their underwater companions afterwards.
