How To Sew A Toy Orange
With it's soft round form and humble nature, the Orange will fit perfectly in your child's hands providing comfort and hours of open-ended play.
From citrus desserts like orange pound cake or orange sorbet, to fresh delights like freshly squeezed orange juice or a simple fruit salad, 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 Orange 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 orange form only [not the leaf].
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.
