Little Photographer Camera Softie – Updated!

I’ve sewn tons of softies and handmade toys over the past few years, and the one that has been most popular has been the Little Photographer Camera! One of my earliest patterns, it is a stuffed camera toy that encourages imaginative play. There’s a little window in the back to slip real pictures; my kids love shuffling through them or suggesting new ones. Seeing other peoples’ versions pop up in different color combinations over the years has been so much fun and after receiving feedback from a few folks I decided to update the pattern.

Everyone who crafts and sews has a project they’ve started and stalled out on; when you’re a blogger it is even easier to get caught up in pattern tours and sponsored post deadlines.

Use this zipper toy tutorial to sew a toddler toy! A few zippers and some embroidered words will make learning colors fun, and it rolls up easily to tuck into a purse or bag for entertainment on the go.

Time to sew a zipper toy for toddlers! The buckle toy I made for my son has been well loved by him, then my daughter, and now a friend’s daughter so I wanted to try a different twist along the same lines. My daughter is now 2 and interested in colors, so this rainbow sewing tutorial has a bonus learning benefit. It rolls up easily so it can be tucked into a bag or used in the carseat. Handmade toys are one of my favorite things to sew for kids; they don’t outgrow them as quickly as clothing! I love that I could upcycle a burp cloth for this project too, it was so pretty with the rainbow backing but stained on the other side from being used.
