Easy video tutorial – how to make a doughnut stuffed toy out of a sock. It will take you 10 minutes to do and it could be used as a stress toy, pincushion, air freshener or pillow (if you’ll make 9 of them). Also I show how to make mini donuts out of a glove (10 fingers – 10 tiny donuts). Impressively cute! 🙂
I start my video with a tutorial of multifunctional stuffed donut toy. All you’ll need to make are: 1 sock (of any color), a piece of felt (or any fabric of any color), polyester stuffing (you can take a bit from pillow or stuff a toy with other material) and beads or yarn (optional). I show how to make a soft donut with pink icing and with brown chocolate icing. First one with beads (as sprinkles) and the second is with white “glaze” stripes.
What for are they? You can use it as a toy, room decoration (bright spots in your interior), pin cushion, air freshener (just drip few drops of fragrance oil), or, which is my favorite option, make 9 donuts and make a donut pillow! How to make it you’ll find out in my video.
Next part of my tutorial shows how to make mini donuts (or baby donuts, as I called them). For these babes you will need a glove (or pair), a piece of fabric (for “frosting”) and bugles, beads or anything for decoration. You can use these tiny doughnuts as pencil toppers, fridge magnets or as a brooch – up to you!
And the final part of the tutorial is about DIY hand warmers and stress toys. You will need a pair of socks (actually, you can use a sleeve or tights…), rice and piece of cloth for “icing”. Don’t glue fabric if you want to use it as a hand warmers. So this donut must be sewed! When “donuts” will be ready – microwave them on high for 30 seconds, then put into your coat pockets. Rice will save a warm for, at least, 2 hours and will help your hands not to chill. This kind of donut toys are great to calm nerves! Just squish them! Rice makes such a pleasant noise and feels so relaxing in hands! My video about DIY Antistress ball is so popular, so I’ve decided to make an option 🙂
Good luck! 🙂
