Today Amy and I attempted these. I must say, when you got to the turning the fabric "sausage" right sides out...I didn't think this would work. But it did and it was EASY! And only 3 seams ~ start to finish. We made 3 in less than 45 minutes and that included cutting the fabric and ironing the seams. Accurately pinning the layers together to sew is crucial or you might end up not catching a piece of fabric (speaking from experience here!).
Here are some of my pictures of our creations ~

|Ta Da! Isn't it cute?|
|I made 2 for 2 little boys I love!|
|Amy made one for a little cutie we know will be a monkey like his daddy was!|
These could also be great in our Etsy store. And they could be personalized with machine embroidered names or initials.
I just love it when something works like the original poster says!
