This is a fun soft toy for babies and toddlers. Later on it moves to the dressing-up box and becomes a hat or a crown. It is also an ideal 'stress-buster' toy for grown-ups to fidget with. It's quick and easy to make, step by step photos will help you. Different effects can be gained depending on the fabrics you choose and whether or not you 'fussy cut'. It's not obvious from the photos but the toy twists and turns, seemingly on its own, when you hold it in one hand.
