Despite all the dolls I've been making lately, I can make toys for boys too.
Perhaps one of my favourites is this crocodile made from polar fleece.
Frogs turn out pretty fun from polar fleece as well (yes, I know he doesn't exactly have child safe eyes, but my son was past the age of pulling the eyes off his toys when I made this for him... actually he chose these buttons for the eyes).
A lizard made from animal print polar fleece is a novelty - the choice made by my son (and again with the eyes... he exhausted my supply of this style of button when he kept wanting them to be the eyes on the bevy of creatures I made for him).
These stuffies are the easiest kind to make. Simply draw the outline of the creature on paper, pin the paper to your two layers of fabric and stitch on the drawn lines (remembering of course to leave an opening for turning the creature right side out for stuffing). My sons began sewing this way and made some imaginative creatures while building some skills with a fun project. You've got to try this - especially with polar fleece (no fraying and it's every so soft to cuddle).
