Rubber duckies get all the attention -- but a washcloth duck can really make bath time fun for your baby.

Introduction

Terry cloth stuffed with sponge makes cleanup an adventure. Use our templates to make a whole family of ducks that are charming on land and delightfully squishy when immersed in water.

materials

  • Washcloth

  • Thread

  • Sponge

steps

  1. Using the washcloth duck templates, cut duck shapes from a washcloth (use solid lines); each duck part will use two identical pieces; the base takes a single oval. Cut two identical sponge shapes for the head, and two for the tail (use dotted lines); cut one additional piece of sponge to make the body thicker. Each wing will take one piece of sponge.

  2. Sew two washcloth body pieces together, leaving bottom open; turn right side out; stuff with sponges. Cover hole with oval; hand-sew shut. Sew wing pieces together, leaving bottoms open; turn right side out. Stuff pieces with sponge; hand-sew shut. Sew wings onto body securely.

  3. Add black knots for eyes. To make bill, cut two ovals from felt; stitch on with orange thread.
