Standing Baby Craft

Here's a craft for making a figure that looks like a baby wearing a straw hat.


  • straw broom
  • baby sleeper
  • child's hat
  • Ad

  • batting for stuffing
  • pipe cleaners or string
  • needle and thread


Take the broom and separate the bristles to look like two legs and tie with string or pipe cleaners. Put on the sleeper, putting the legs of the sleeper over the bristle legs. Stuff the legs and body around the broom then stuff the arms. They will be open on end and sticking out straight but then you are going to sew the arms together in front of the baby by sewing the sleeper together.

Then put the hat on broom handle top. It is not going to have a face but no one will know because it is going to be displayed with the back showing as in the picture. Sorry about the picture, it's a little bit short but you can get the general idea.

These are so cute! In my area of Texas, I've seen them dressed in little jeans and cowboy boots/hats...saw one today that even had a Skoal can in the back pocket! Around here they are called "Pouters".
