I have been wanting to do this for quite sometime.
It is so easy.
First you need to snap a picture of your favorite pet.
Our cat, Scratch, would not open his eyes for anything, but he still looks cute!
Next you can edit your photo to change colors or add anything you like.
I tinted Goose's huggy in purple, her favorite color.
You will also need fabric for the backside of the huggy. I chose prints I thought the kids would like.
After you choose the photo you want to use you will need to print in 8 x 10 size
on printable fabric. You can find this at most craft stores.
Cut out your pet and sew your pieces together.
Stuff them and close them and you are done!
I hand sewed these because I didn't want the kids to see me making them.
This is my first sewing project!
But you could probably tell that from the pictures!!
Goose and Binky loved their "Scratch" huggies!
They were so surprised!
I can't wait to make more for friends and family.
I'm hoping the kids will be inspired to make their own.
