Sammy Sunshine baby toy (in the hoop)
Sammy Sunshine is a happy, fun, super-easy in the hoop baby toy!
With just a tiny bit of hand stitching to close the hole after stuffing, you can whip up one of these in no time!
Perfect for that last minute baby shower gift!
So cheap to make too (a great way of using up those little scraps of fleece, velour or minkee, and all those little pieces of ribbon). For extra fun, you can add a squeaker or cellophane paper inside for that crinkly sound babies love. Add a c-clip/link (widely available in the baby departments of stores) and Sammy can become a tag-along friend to keep baby amused on the go!
Sammy Sunshine comes in two sizes, which are both included -
4 x 4 hoop
5 x 7 hoop
You can omit the middle bottom ribbon if you wish - I have also included a seven ribbon version which leaves out the extra step for the tackdown stitching for that particular ribbon over the opening. Without the middle bottom ribbon, he looks more like a happy little smiley with arms and legs!
And of course, instructions are included in PDF format.
Hoop sizes vary by machine brand - some larger size designs may not fit your machine specific hoop - if in doubt please the check the stitch count / colour chart information below...
