How To Sew A Toy Banana

With it's elegant lines, subtle details and playful nature, the Banana is a delightful  piece from our fruit collection providing beautiful aesthetic and hours of open-ended play. 

From comforting desserts like banana bread or banana split, to fresh delights like banana nice cream or a chocolate banana smoothie [a favourite in our household], this piece will be a beautiful addition to the play kitchen inspiring children to explore creatively within the process of cooking, baking and making.

The Banana is a heirloom piece designed to be a keepsake item that can be passed down from one generation to the next.  We hope that you enjoy this piece as much as we do :)What You'll Need

SUGGESTED FABRICS + MATERIALS

This pattern is designed for woven fabrics.  We recommend using a light to medium weight [4oz to 7oz] cotton, linen or natural blended fabric.  If using a light weight fabric, we suggest a soft light weight interfacing for the banana only [not the peel].

For stuffing toys, we find an organic cotton or wool stuffing to work best.  It packs nicely creating a firm toy and, not to mention, is much easier for our children and our planet.
