My son is 23 months and is in love with a couple of vegetable movie stars. I have known that I wanted to make him some plush toys for a few months now and have been thinking and researching how to do it. I finally came across this fabric beach ball tutorial from The Purl Bee and it was perfect!
I used the Med size for the Tomato.
I "free handed" both their faces and the leaf top. I machine sewed their eyes and mouths but hand sewed the black part of the eye and the leaf top.
I used the Large size for the Cucumber plus added 3 inches into the middle. If I was going to do it over again I would add a total of 5 inches to the middle because his face should take up half of his body. With just the 3 inches, he seems a little short to me.
I'm sure my son will LOVE them!! Check out The Purl Bee for some great tutorials for all things crafty.
