Charming Baby Toys - Free Pattern

These colorful stuffed toys were made from 5 inch charm squares.

You need 2 charm squares of each color.

Place them pretty sides together.

Stitch 1/4 inch seam allowance all the way around leaving an opening of about 2 inches.  Stitch twice.

Clip the corners off, close to the stitching on each corner.

Turn right side out.

Poke each corner out from the inside.

Stuff with whatever you think is best for your baby toys.  I selected poly batting that I cut up into little squares.

Hand or machine stitch the opening closed. I hand stitched them closed.

The finished square toy measures about 4 1/2".

I lined them up like a color wheel with the primary colors in the center - Red, Yellow and Blue. Then I placed the secondary colors around them - Orange, Purple, and Green.

Lined them up in rows.

Then in a pile! I had fun playing with them.  I hope my grandson loves them too.

I also cut out some toys from some novelty fabrics I had. I stitched them the same way.  But no corners - all rounded edges. 

I love the blue butterfly. That represents me - Grandmama.

I decided I needed a fish to represent Grandpapa, because he loves to fish. 

and I needed a cow and pig for Wisconsin's farms.

Then I threw them all together in one pile.

I have to say, I had fun making them too!
