I made this Kangaroo and Joey out of an old pair of sweatpants that were too damaged to donate.
First I drew the kangaroos with a Sharpie Stained Fabric Marker on the sweatpants.
I cut both shapes out in duplicate. This is easily done because the sweatpants have two layers.
Then I turned them inside out and sewed them together with a 1/4" allowance. I left the bottoms of both kangaroos open for stuffing. Ignore the arm on the lower left. I decided not to attach it when it was all done.
I then cut a heart and pocket out of eco-fi felt from JoAnn Fabrics and cut one blue eye out for each kangaroo and white teeth for the mother kangaroo. I sewed them on with a blanket stitch and it was all done.
