“Where the Wild Things Are” is such a popular children’s book. You can create your own stuffed creatures for your child!
I saw this idea somewhere a year or so ago. I gave each of the girls crayons and a piece of paper, and asked them to draw a creature of some kind that they liked. My only rule was that it have no extremely skinny appendages.
Then, I took the girls down to our “fabric stash” in the basement (or you could just go to a fabric store) and asked them to choose a fabric that they thought would bring their creature to life.
I cut around each girl’s drawn creature, adding 1/2″ on each side for seam allowances. Then this became my pattern, and I used it to cut the creature from fabric and sew the sides together. The final step was to stuff the creatures and add eyes and other details.
