Peas in a Pod Zipper Toy

from Tie Dye Diva patterns
(9) Name: 'Sewing : Peas in a Pod Zipper Toy
Peas in a Pod Zipper Toy
Peas in a Pod Zipper Toy
Peas in a Pod Zipper Toy
Peas in a Pod Zipper Toy

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Sew a straight line
  • Sew a zipper (but I'll show you how!)
  • hand stitch a small opening (but I'll show you how!)

Pattern Description:

This is a wonderful developmental toy - babies are stimulated by cause-and-effect of the noisemakers and can learn to zip and unzip the zipper - great for the 'object permanence' learning phase! Add crinkle, rattle and squeak noisemakers to the peas to add to the fun!

No zipper experience needed. I take you through each step, one by one, with full color photos.

Tie Dye Diva patterns always include full-sized printable patterns that are computer drafted and color coded. DIY is great, but I don't make you draft your own patterns! Take a look at the sample pages (from a different Tie Dye Diva pattern) for an example of what is included.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Finished pod approximately 15"; peas are 3.5" diameter.


  • 1/2 yard polyester fleece

You Will Also Need:

  • 14" zipper, or longer. The best ones for this have large plastic teeth and a plastic pull, such as Parka or Sport zippers
  • Zipper foot for your sewing machine
  • Polyfill stuffing
  • Embroidery thread and needle for adding facial features
  • Optional craft squeaker, craft rattle or bell, cellophane or other crinkle material
