Amy from Nana Company shares a tutorial at eHow showing how to make a Basil Bear softie for a baby. His shape is simple and lightly stuffed. On the back, you can embroidery a label with the child’s name. He’s made entirely with hand sewing, with a face embroidered on so there are no buttons to worry about coming off. A tab at the top will allows you to attach him to a car seat or stroller. Go to eHow to find her tutorial and a template.
