    I make plush toys by drawing out any rounded shape and adding a few features (ie: nubs for legs or ears, etc.) and use that as a pattern- just remember to go bigger than you think you should and leave room for selvage. Terry cloth makes a nice plush toy, and you can find the stuffing at any fabric or craft store. Good luck! At 14 mos. I wouldn't suggest any button eyes or anything, but you could applique a mouth on or something.

    i've made monkeys and elephants out of socks. an octopus is a great idea. i obviously didnt see that issue of readymade. but i don't think an octopus would be hard to do--use the end of the sock for the head/body, and make a 8 arms (just like the ones on a monkey), and sew them to the body. and dont forget eyes ! i wonder how many they have...?

    because of the commas you'll have to cut and paste.
