Softie

I came across this website on Pinterest: http://www.childsown.com/page/2/  I thought that it was so neat so I showed my kids.  And of course my kids decided that they would like a softie of their own.  BUT their softies would be made by me!  Let me tell you about my non-existent, mad sewing skills.  If you need a straight stitch then I am your girl.  Anything beyond that and you never know what you'll end up with.  My middle girl was the first to create something that she wanted to become a softie.  I studied it and we went shopping for the different fabrics.  About $10.00 later we were set.  This was in May.  At the request of my daughter, I began right away.  The hair set me back many weeks....don't ask.  Finally, here we are, August 1st and the Queen of Hearts softie is done!
Here is her original drawing:
Here is the happy girl with her new softie!

Success!
