DIY NO SEW KID-MADE MINI-ME STUFFED DOLLS

Most kids love looking looking at pictures of themselves, so these min-me dolls are an adorable project of self-expression. Let kids draw their portraits and turn them into these adorable stuffed dolls! What's great is that these are no-sew for young children who aren't yet able to sew on their own.

However, you can definitely encourage stitching if your child is able to sew or just learning. Follow the instructions below and instead of the glue, simply stitch along!




To keep these simple and easy, we also used white tea towels which are already folded over so all you need to do is finish up 3 ends instead of 4.




No Sew Mini-Me Stuffed Dolls - Materials:

- Tea Towels

- Paint makers (we love these for their bright colors)

- Hot glue gun (this low-temp one is great for kids)

- Polyfill (stuffing)

- Scissors

*You'll also need an iron.




Instructions:

Step 1. Unfold your tea towel so you have one long side facing you but still folded. Cut to the lenght you want, keeping the fold intact on one end. We ended up cutting ours about 7.5" x 9" into a rectangular shape.

On the front side, ask your child to draw themselves with the paint markers. Ask them to leave a one inch border on all sides of their drawing. 




Step 2. Fold about a 1/2" border on each sides and iron those (have an adult do this part), as shown below. 




Step 3. Hot glue 2 sides, one side won't need folding over since it was left intact when you folded the tea towel over. You should have one empty side. Fill the empty side with polyfill. 




Step 4. Hot glue the opening shut when you're done stuffing your doll. 

As mentioned above, you can skip the hot gluing steps and instead, pin and sew your dolls if you want to go with stitching.
