Some softie-making

Such a long time has passed since my last blog post! In that time, the kids finished up their year at school, one of them had a kindergarten graduation, two of them had their ears pierced, and we all packed up and left for an eleven-day holiday to Osaka and Kyoto in Japan. Life has been truly very full.

A while before we left, I got it into my head that I wanted to make a little softie for a little baby boy at church. I had seen this tutorial a long time ago, and filed it away under future makes. I figured it’d be cute for a baby, right?

What I always forget though, is that I have a bunch of kids with grabby hands at home! And once they saw what I was up to, they had to have their own too! So it’s never a case of just making one, I end up having to make a whole family!

This was my first iteration, all from leftover fabric. This is definitely my favourite. The kids were not so impressed.

These were more their speed. The rainbow fabric is from Spotlight. I had bought meters last year for rainbow pants that I made for a fund-raising theatre production.

One last softie, this one was a joint effort between by older, 8-year-old daughter and me. This was a super early Christmas present for one of her best friends. E did all the embroidered face details herself, with just a little guidance from me. I think it turned out very cute!

    I love having kids make Christmas presents, it means so much more to them and the results are so cute! (E has some impressive sewing skills for an 8 year old!)
